Enter the World's Most Legendary Dungeon

From the nefarious black skeletons to the lair of the arch-lich, Zelkor, Rappan Athuk is the most famous and feared dungeon in all the lands. Do you seek the mithril gates? Or perhaps the ring of the sorcerer Akbeth? Does your quest take you to Hell itself? Then you have come to the right place. A pity you won't be staying long.

Death and Despair

The first in the R series of D20 dungeon modules by Necromancer Games, Rappan Athuk 1: The Upper Levels is the grand-daddy of all dungeon crawls! These caverns, passages, traps, and hidden chambers defy even the most experienced adventurers. Rappan Athuk 1 features six levels of this infamous multi-level dungeon, including monsters your characters have never imagined in their worst nightmares. Need a new dungeon to go with those dragons? Rappan Athuk awaits!

A Third Edition adventure for six or more player characters of at least level 3

I loved the text and the drawings but I gave it a 3 out of 5 because the maps were so poorly done. They are blurry and for the most part useless. Thats to bad too because I am really looking forward to running my friends thru this adventure. [...]

Miss the good old days of kicking down doors and slaying a dozen monsters pausing only long enough to smile at the camera before looting the room and moving on? well Rappan Athuk is for you! Plenty of beasties in this room filled dungeon extravaganza. [...]

Rappan Athuk is killer! It's easily scalable for first level PC's or you can have them wait until they're 4th or 5th level. It's a great series of mini-adventures within the module where your PC's will try and break thru defenses, traps, and etc. to ga [...]

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.
