SOSR6 Against the Unholy: Demesne of the Dark Sisterhood


Demesne of the Dark Sisterhood

A Two-Part Fantasy Adventure
Intended for 4 to 6 player characters of levels 4 to 6
Compatible with First Edition and Most Retro-Clones

Greetings adventurers and Game Masters! 

I am excited to release the sixth book in my OSR Series of adventures, “AGAINST THE UNHOLY: DEMESNE OF THE DARK SISTERHOOD”. This adventure is the first in two-part series which has your players battling against a vile anti-paladin and her Chaotic cohorts, who have unlawfully taken up residence in the heart of Baile Atha Quinith, the capitol city of the Red Eagle Barony. This vile company of murders and cutthroats, known as The Dark Sisterhood, are wanted for war crimes in several neighboring kingdoms; and their illegal occupation of a long abandoned manor house a stone’s throw from Castle Quinith cannot be tolerated. Authorities want them removed from the premises and your players are just the people for the job. This mid-level one-shot adventure is intended for 4 to 6 veteran players with characters of levels 4 to 6.

Synopsis: Trouble is brewing in Baile Atha Quinith, capitol city of the Red Eagle Barony. A group of Chaotic mercenaries is squatting in an abandoned manor house. Their leader, a dark elf anti-paladin, has bribed a corrupt local official to give her livery of seisen, providing legal credence to her occupation of the manor. However, the authorities have uncovered the fraud, and they are looking for heroes to enter the complex; arrest or eliminate the marauders and the corrupt clerk; and recapture the livery of seisen.

Will you accept the challenge and enter the demesne of the Dark Sisterhood?!

This module is very versatile and has been written to offer Game Masters a number of play options. It can be run, as is, as a complete stand-alone adventure; or if the GM wishes they may seamlessly continue the story arc begun here into the upcoming sequel adventure “AGAINST THE UNHOLY: TOWER INVERSO”; and lastly, my long-time readers may incorporate this adventure into the story arc of the STAMUS CONTRA MALUM ("We Stand Against Evil" in the Common tongue), where it is the penultimate adventure in that campaign, which will conclude in “AGAINST THE UNHOLY: TOWER INVERSO”.

This adventure was written for use with most versions of the world’s oldest roleplaying game. Minimal OSR statistics are included in the text of the adventure, but the GM is welcome to substitute them with stats from their rulebook of choice. This scenario features a mountain of new magic items, totaling eight (8) wondrous treasures to incorporate into your campaign, including the cape of defense, dagger of doubling, elfin scale armour, half-plate armour, the hand crossbow, longbow of speed, rapier of swiftness and the coveted moonblade shortsword, rumoured to be made from exotic metals of extra-spherical origin!

PLUS 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) from my published books!

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.
