Enter the Marshes and Crypts of Dodenmoor

Please note: Dodenmoor is still in active development, the PDF might change, any feedback offered is greatly appreciated.

Dodenmoor is a 48 page, full colour, A5 zine, introducing a mini setting developed for old-school role-playing games.

Within you will find three environments, offering 49 adventuring locations:

The Marshlands, haunted wetlands, home to cultists, witches, giant spiders, trolls, and the legendary Boneyard Turtle. Featuring:

  •  The Ruins of Modrest, the crumbling remains of a once prosperous pilgrimage site, where the remaining humans struggle to survive, ruled by a drug cartel.
  •  The Walking Town, a huge turtle in the process of being settled by dark elves.

The Crypts, a sunken necropolis, connected via a dense network of tunnels. Inhabited by awakened undead, sentient and trying to create meaning whilst coming to terms with their own ungodly existence.

The Glooms, caverns filled with the eery light of lichen, where fungi shepherds spread their spores over fields of rot, always working towards their return to their progenitor.

This is an example of one such site:

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.
