Sepulchre of Dusk - compatible with Shadowdark RPG


Sepulchre of Dusk is an introductory Shadowdark adventure for up to four players and a Game Master.

Life is hard for the clans of the wold, a life of toil and sacrifice. But there is joy as well. A marriage festival is underway; kith and kin have gathered at the homestead. But harken! The bridegroom has been captured; his retainers slain in cruel ambush. After a violent change in leadership, the Blood Blade goblin tribe has turned its face from peace and now threatens war. Can the raiders be caught, and the bridegroom returned to his family?

Four heroes give chase, hoping to overtake the raiders. But when this hope is dashed, only one path remains to effect a rescue of their friend.

They must brave the Sepulchre of Dusk.

Included in this adventure module:

● A fully detailed adventure location designed with verisimilitude and ease of use in mind.

● Fully bookmarked and hyperlinked digital version of the adventure in easy-to-read digest size format.

● Low-ink, art-free version of the adventure for convenient printing.

● Separate map files in both regular and low-ink versions.

● Four pre-generated print-ready Level 1 player characters.

The free Shadowdark RPG Quickstart Set by The Arcane Library is required to use this adventure. However, Sepulchre of Dusk is broadly compatible with other old school gaming systems that emulate classic B/X such as Old School Essentials and Swords & Wizardry. Sepulchre of Dusk is suitable for an evening's play, but may be expanded to further sessions if desired.

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.
