Dungeon Crawl Classics #49: Palace in the Wastes


An Adventure for Character Levels 6-7.

Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics adventures don’t waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or NPCs who aren’t meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you remember, and the secret doors you know are there somewhere.

This special tournament module was used for the Third Annual Dungeon Crawl Classics Open Tournament at Gen Con Indy 2006. It includes the official tournament scoring system, pregenerated characters, and illustrated player handouts. The adventurers seek the ruined palace occasionally glimpsed deep within the forbidding Achsfel Wastes. Within, they discover evidence of the palace’s builders, the tortoise-like falsoom, and begin to piece together why it was built. Soon they face a series of titanic battles against a twisted servant of Law, a giant weapon of Chaos, and the severed (but very alive) hand of a demigod!

If you enjoy this adventure, look for the rest of the Dungeon Crawl Classics series!

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.
