SOSR3 The Tomb of Tomes



A Desert-Themed Adventure for Player Levels 6 to 8
Intended For Use with Most Fantasy Roleplaying Games

Greetings adventurers and Game Masters! 

I am pleased to announce the release of the third book in my OSR Series of adventure scenarios, THE TOMB OF TOMES. In this adventure your players will be exploring the recently uncovered ruins of the final resting place of a renowned scholar from antiquity, the Librarian of the court of the fabled Last Sharif of the Parched Desert. Players will be searching for her vast library, rumoured to hold rare and magical tomes. However, the Librarian has no intention of giving up her treasures easily, and invaders must face her deadly traps and minions before coming face to face with the undead Librarian herself, who holds the keys to her ancient repository of knowledge. The adventure is intended for 4 to 6 veteran adventurers of levels 6 to 8, and is written to be rules agnostic so that it may be used with most fantasy roleplaying games. This adventure was written for use with older versions of the world’s oldest roleplaying game, but it is easily modified to be played with most fantasy rulesets. Minimal OSR statistics are included in the text of the adventure, but the book includes an appendix with a complete OSR statistic block for the new monster encountered here, the Dungeon Trapper.  This adventure may be played as a one-shot or can be used as a sequel to the Starry Knight Press adventure SOS3 The Sharif's Observatory (intended for PCs levels 2 to 4).

Synopsis: Rumours speak of a tomb in the desert which held a wealth of knowledge, the library maintained by the court Librarian of the Last Sharif. A dust storm has uncovered an old crumbling catacomb which locals believe to be the librarian’s resting place. Will you claim her books?

PLEASE NOTE: First, this book is presented in LANDSCAPE format, so when printing it out it is important to adjust your double-sided printing to flip the book on the SHORT-EDGE and not the long-edge, or the back pages will be upside down. Second, unfortunately the cover image and quick preview here may appear condensed into portrait dormat due to the DTRPG software. However, the PDF file is presented in landscapre mode and below is a preview of what the book actually looks like in landscape format.


Lastly, with this purchase you also get a free copy of my latest Starry Knight Press Catalog, which has information on all of my modules and supplements, as well as maps of the known portions of my campaign world of Terrans, and bonus content (new monsters and magic items for OSR/5E rules) taken from my published books.

Thank you for your custom!

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.
