Secrets of the Delver’s Guild
A Ptolus sourcebook by Monte Cook


If you’ve read the Ptolus book, then you know all about the Delver’s Guild, a group that brings adventurers together to trade information about the Dungeon below the city, as well as useful resources in the city proper and even potential missions. But the Delver’s Guild has become even more than that.

For a year leading up to the release of Ptolus, game designer Monte Cook wrote a short article every week and posted it on a website just for customers who had preordered the book. The articles were brand-new material for the city: NPCs, deities, locations, creatures, and similar things relevant to the members of the Delver’s Guild organization in Ptolus.

We called this website “the Delver’s Guild,” as the site brought fans of Ptolus together to discover new resources just as its namesake organization did for adventurers. And now, long after the debut of Ptolus, the Secrets of the Delver’s Guild are finally revealed!

In these 76 pages you’ll find all the material from the Delver’s Guild website just waiting to be introduced to your Ptolus Campaign. Here’s what’s inside:

  • 6 new gods
  • 12 new locales
  • 24 new NPCs
  • Plus new monsters, items, treasures, and much more!

In Ptolus, the Delver's Guild is an organisation that supports adventurers exploring the wonders underneath the city. Whatever your party likes to do in the city, they probably will have at least occasional dealings with the Guild. However, during the [...]

An excellent addition to the Ptolus setting. Many little gems one can use or not, in a "pick'n choose" sort of way. Definitely recommended for the Ptolus owner, it could conceivably serve as a source of inspiration for NPCs, locales a [...]

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.
