A Tomb of Twins


A shadow looms over Dreklow.

The tomb of the twin necromancers that once terrorized this region stands as an affront to all who knew their names. Although they were defeated centuries ago, their tower torn down stone by stone, although everyone would prefer to forget their existence, priests enter the tomb once a month to conduct a ritual kept secret upon pain of death.

Where there is mystery, there are rumors. Here, the talk is of great treasure held in the burial chamber, waiting only for the right people to plunder it. There are also rumors of danger and dark magic placed on the tomb to ward off those lured by treasure, but even those trials may be overcome for the right price.


A Tomb of Twins is a system-ambivalent adventure designed for old-school style play. Creature stats are provided for CRACK! (compatible with B/X-based games), Cairn, and Mörk Borg.

It is intended for lower-level play (i.e. 1–3 in B/X-based games). All combat is potentially deadly, but avoidable, and careful and creative play will be more rewarding regardless of level. It is intended to be completed in one to two game sessions. 

It features: 

  • A small town with NPCs and, rumors, and hooks to send the players to the tomb
  • A 12-room dungeon full of ghosts, traps, and other dangers
  • Bickering necromancers
  • Adorable, feckless, and deadly swampkins
  • Seven unique creatures statted for three games


This is a major revision and expansion to The Tomb of the Twins, published last year as a mini-dungeon for The Black Hack. A full preview of the PDF of A Tomb of Twins is available here for comparison of the many changes and additions since that original publication.

Hey. This is the same dungeon as The Tomb of the Twins? You're selling the same thing twice?

I am not selling the same thing twice. This is a major revision and expansion to The Tomb of Twins. It is the same basic dungeon layout and shares some of the same features, but there is a lot more going on in it than in the original: a town with NPCs and hooks to flesh out reasons for going into the tomb and what might happen after, random encounters with ghosts inside of the tomb, better information presentation and layout, original art, more fleshed out and interesting encounters with the liches in the final room, and new creature stats for three systems (rather than just pointing to TBH stats as in the original). The original is also pay-what-you-want, so anyone can pick that up for free if they like, and you can preview the entirety of this one here to check if the additions are worth it. I'm charging for this one because of the extra work that I've put into it and the cost of commissioning art for it.

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.
