Dark Raiders of Misty Ridge

Watermarked PDF

An OSRIC™ compatible adventure module for 6 characters Levels 2 - 3 set in the Realms of Arkonus Fantasy Campaign Setting and is easily adaptable to any fantasy campaign setting.

Misty Ridge has been threatened by mysterious raiders that come at night and loot homes and businesses. Most who have crossed paths with the raiders have been slain without mercy. Those rare few who have survived an encounter with the raiders describe them as ferocious, gray-skinned creatures that blend with the mists and move with deadly silence. The Regent of nearby Geldhart has been notified of the problem and he has sent the PCs to investigate and deal with the matter. Can the player characters solve the mystery of the Dark Raiders and restore peace to the once quiet retirement village of Misty Ridge?

Includes 1 new monster and 1 new character race.

This product uses the OSRIC™ System (Oldschool System Reference and Index Compilation™). The OSRIC™ system text may be found at

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.
