Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Prepare to unleash your imagination... Assume the role of a mighty warrior, powerful wizard, or crafty rogue and explore ancient dungeons, catacombs, and ruins in search of treasure and glory. All you need is one or more dice, a pencil, and paper. Ideally, two or more friends can join your adventures, but you can also grab all the glory for yourself since it's playable as both a solitaire and multiplayer game.

The ENnie Award-winning Ancient Odysseys: Treasure Awaits! is designed as an introductory game that lets you start playing in less than 10 minutes. Choose which areas to explore, choose which monsters to attack, and choose how to dole out the treasure. Then proceed with your own adventures into the dark and dangerous depths, exploring either random catacombs or those you design yourself. Even if you're a veteran gamer, this new take on an old style of gaming will relieve your retro-fantasy cravings.

This PDF set includes

  • Three digest-sized rule books (Basic Play, Dungeon: In Search of the Lost Child, and Further Adventures)
  • Duplicate rule books for double-sided printing
  • Reference sheets
  • Blank sheets for adventurers and creatures

NOTE: The contents are the same as the boxed set (dice not included).

You can create your own supplemental material for Treasure Awaits! royalty-free. Click here to download the Open Supplement License.

Expand this game with More Treasure Awaits!, which adds new options for play, from creating new types of adventurers and building landscapes to spending time in town and procuring goods to tackling new spells, traps, and creatures.

"This hands down has been a lot of fun for such a simple die mechanic. It skips the nonsense and gets to the actual play really quick."

", oh, man, the simple design hides some depth... Absolutely awesome."

"Treasure Awaits has a laser focus on creating a breathtaking dungeon crawl and it is a direct hit."

I gotta a question about initiative or reaction tasks: When do monsters roll their reaction tasks? Or do heroes always go first?

Hi. All player and non-player characters roll for initiative at the same time. Heroes do not always go first, but it would be OK to play that way if you prefer except for when the creatures surprise/ambush them.

Unfortunately, this site does not generate previews from zip files and off-site linking is not permitted here. This is available as a boxed set or pocket softcover through Precis Intermedia (softcover also available via amazon and other sources; the same goes for the More Treasure Awaits! add-on). Thanks.

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.
