VERSE: Tomb of the Serpent Kings Adaptation


As part of playtesting my new tabletop RPG VERSE, I butchered Skerples's famous 16-page dungeon Tomb of the Serpent Kings down to two dense, abstracted pages. Obviously, I had to cut out a decent bit, but I feel I was able to keep most of the core elements, as well as the instructional aspect of the dungeon, intact (though your impressions may differ).

This is certainly far from the most elegant one-ish-page adventure, and it's far from a perfect example of what the approach used for VERSE can do. It was more of a creative exercise to flesh out the system, but it should give you enough of an understanding to make your own dungeons and modules, or convert your favorites, to test VERSE out.

Try it with the current version of the VERSE playtest, and check out the original dungeon, if you haven't already.

This adaptation is released with a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license. It's based on and reuses portions of Tomb of the Serpent Kings by Skerples, licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
