The Scourge of Thunderhold - A Dungeon Crawl Adventure for Starting Players

Watermarked PDF

May thy blades be sharp

May thy stones be strong

And as thy hammers strike

May thy forges burn long

Thunderhold: An ancient dwarven fortress built deep into a cliffside. Walls as strong as iron, stonework as intricate as a finely crafted gauntlet, a raging waterfall thundering through its main chamber. But why was it abandoned, so long ago? What are the secrets kept within its fortified structures? What treasures and perils does it hold?

The Scourge of Thunderhold is a dungeon crawl adventure that will grant starting Players and GMs a couple of game nights of exploration, interaction, problem-solving, and combat as the PCs venture into the abandoned mighty dwarven fortress of Thunderhold to investigate rumors of undead plaguing the place.

This book contains descriptions and maps for all rooms in the fortress, including stats for traps, magic items, and also a couple of brand-new monsters and a magic weapon, all compatible with Old-School Essentials and a bunch of other OSR games, or easily adapted to Shadowdark, Castles & Crusades or 5th edition.

Product Information
File Size:
5.71 MB
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.
