Those who lie under the earth should not be woken.

When you took the job, you never thought it would lead to this. Escorting a prisoner to the court of Baron Aldred did not sound like the start of your path to glory and riches.

As you stare out over the battlements of your castle, you reflect on the long, twisted journey that brought you here. How a chance meeting with a village priest led you to the lost tomb of the legendary king Vallandar. That drew the attention of the Baron’s steward Sir Beorn; and the strange mission he asked you to do convinced the Baron to make you his trusted guards.

Then from there... the bizarre island; the attempt on the Baron’s life and the tragedy of his eldest son; the long sea-voyage to the jungles of Mungoda; and finally here, fighting for control of this ancient castle and its hidden secrets.

As the enemy’s soldiers stand at the causeway, waiting for low tide to begin their assault, you ask yourself: has it been worth it? Smiling, you draw your weapon. Glory is its own reward, and today will be glorious indeed.

Sleeping Gods is a series of seven adventures that will lead player-characters from their first steps in the world of Dragon Warriors, through atmospheric quests, tense journeys, rescue missions, trading expeditions, exploration and more. With each success their reputation rises with nobles and patrons, until at the climax they may win control of a castle that can decide the outcome of a war.

Along the way they will come face-to-face with important patrons, powerful sorcerers, ancient beast-spirits, vengeful revenants, treacherous companions and terrifying monsters of many kinds... and perhaps a god too.

The book is suitable for novice gamesmasters and players, but has atmosphere, richness, depth and variety that will entertain experienced gamers too. The adventures can be played as a sequence to create a single story, or interspersed with other scenarios from different sources or the GM’s imagination, or rearranged and played in any order.

With great new artwork from Jon Hodgson, Andew Law, Scott Purdy and Scott Neil.

Those stories are wonderful, they thrown me into rpg and fanatsy long day ago, in the 80's. I would add some more political issue between Aldred and Montombre, Elven Crystals after Hunter's Moon story and Prince of Darkness after Sins of the [...]

‘Sleeping Gods’ is another high-quality instalment to the newly reprinted ‘Dragon Warriors’ RPG, and once again the folk at Serpent King Games need to be commended (if only for bringing one of my favourite RPGs back in print). The title consist [...]

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.
