Condemned to death. Executed. Yet somehow, you survived. Now you roam the endless tunnels of the City Below, the Midnight Throne: Ker Nethalas. Will your skills and wits save you once again, or will you join the countless restless dead?

Welcome to Ker Nethalas: Into the Midnight Throne, a single player dungeon crawler set in an endless necropolis. With the tools presented in the book you’ll tell the story of your character who, after miraculously surviving an execution, wakes up to realize that their problems have just begun, and that there are fates worse than death.

When you sit down to play Ker Nethalas: Into the Midnight Throne, you, the player, take on the role of a single character. Your PC is your avatar in the dark tunnels of the necropolis, and your decisions (and luck!) will determine their fate.

Ker Nethalas: Into the Midnight Throne uses a simple D100 ruleset to resolve all tasks. Whenever a PC tries to do something and the result isn't evident, or there is something at stake, you will need to perform a check. This is done by rolling D100, and comparing the result to the corresponding skill on the character’s sheet. If the result is equal or lower than the skill’s score, the check is a success. 

Combat is a big part of what makes Ker Nethalas: Into the Midnight Throne unique: characters need to manage their resources while being smart about their choice of powers used. The opposed combat check makes combat unpredictable and will require your constant attention, as you evaluate the different options that will open to you depending on your luck and actions.

Ker Nethalas: Into the Midnight Throne features:

  • Detailed random dungeon generation, providing endless replayability and adventures, with an easy to use D100 ruleset that makes it the ideal game for new solo RPG players.

  • Meaningful character builds with endless combinations. Want to make a warlock that wears heavy armor and summons the dead, or a berserker that casts cold blasts and turns invisible, or an expert at hand-to-hand combat that can summon a shadow clone? These and many more are all possible, thanks to 100 different abilities, spread among 20 Masteries.

  • Tense survival mechanics, focused on the dungeon delving experience. Want to take a rest? You better make sure you fortify that room, or something will wander inside and eat your face out. 

  • A unique bestiary with a wide array of undead creatures and other similar abominations, each one with a detailed action table to randomly determine what they do in their turn.

  • Hundreds of loot and gear items, as well as a simple system to randomly generate magic items, to ensure you never loot the same magic sword or boots twice.

  • An original dark fantasy setting, inspired by England in the 17th Century, and Spain at the height of the Inquisition. 

  • Built from the ground up to be played by a single player with a single character. You are alone in the darkness, and nobody’s coming to rescue you.

Similar game to D100 Dungeon or Four Against Darkness but more complex in a good way. Survival and resource menagment are important as well as luck. There are some clever mechanics that bring to mind cRPG like Diablo. Character progress and magic item [...]

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.
