Return to the Valley of Despair, A Third-Party Mörk Borg Poster


Welcome to Return to the Valley of Despair, my second (unofficial)  look at the Valley of the Unfortunate Undead. This adventuring site was first introduced in the core rules and I expanded on the basic description of the place in Fathomless Despair. This companion to the Fathomless Despair pocket map provides the gamemaster with more ideas to use when the player characters make the mistake of visiting that wretched valley of undeath. 

This double-sided poster map includes:

  • Seven new encounter hooks.
  • Two random encounter tables.
  • New monsters.

Fathomless Despair is recommended, but not required, to use this work. Creative gamemasters will have no trouble at all adapting this material to their campaigns.


This PDF was created thanks to the support of 505 backers who joined in the Kickstarter campaign for Box of Terrors. Thank you to all of the supporters for making that campaign a success!

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.
