The Axe of Dreams - Level-0 Shadowdark Gauntlet


The Axe of Dreams

Level-0 Shadowdark Gauntlet


In The Axe of Dreams, a level-0 Shadowdark gauntlet, a large percentage of the population of Spearhome has experienced strange dreams where they wield a magical axe. With this arcane artifact, their dreams and aspirations come to fruition in the land of dreams. Those who experienced the most vivid oneiric visions also feel an unavoidable urge to visit a narrow cavern near town. A small expedition sets out to visit the place.

When the characters arrive, they find an obsidian gate that had always barred passage now open. It leads them to a bygone crypt where a mighty hero of the past was interred hundreds of years ago. The trespassing peasants must make use of their creativity and resourcefulness to overcome the deathly challenges in the dungeon. In the end, only one of them shall reach the legendary axe and become its new master. They shall soon find it doesn't come without cost.

This gauntlet adventure leads the lowly peasants into a dangerous crypt, pits them against undead forces from the past, and allows them to retrieve a mighty artifact that shall change their lives forever. They shall soon become the writers of history in the modern world.

This adventure has been designed for Shadowdark RPG through their 3rd-party license. The system is meant to be accessible to OSR players and modern players alike. Adapting the material to 5e or other systems is a simple affair.

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.
