Beyond the Mountains of Magnatz (FoF:4)


A picaresque series of adventures for the Dying Earth, featuring the evolving exploits of advancing Cugel-level characters.

BEYOND THE MOUNTAINS OF MAGNATZ (Footsteps of Fools: Part 4)

You may have thought your adventurous rogues were trapped in the barren north until the sun went dark. But no, the former Lords of Cil are on the move again. Initially reprising their roles as the heralded Lords, the adventurers must:

  • Evade becoming victim to the vast ancient menace of Magnatz in the sinister town of Vull
  • Progress through a series of greater and lesser challenges, both natural & magical, as they struggle across the savage mountains
  • Explore strange hospitality in the valley of the mighty Pharesm
  • And survive lands populated by an army of basilisks, before at last winning free to the civilized lands of the east

The other adventures in the series are "1: All's Fair at Azenomei", "2: Strangers in Saskervoy" and "3: The Lords of Cil", all available in PDF form from the webstore. The next publication in this series ("5: And Thence to Almery") wraps it all up. It will carry the PCs from the Northern Scamander, through Erze Damath, and via Old Romarth back to Azenomei and an epic confrontation with Iucounu the Laughing Magician.

Turjan's Tome is essential as an adjunct to this publication if you are evolving PCs towards full Turjanic capacity, as you need to refer to specific rules, spells, items etc and add them in. The Tome also allows significant and easy expansion of BMM in the adventurous Cugel style, as many spells and effects from the Tome are referenced within. But it is not technically ‘essential' if you are content to improvise, invent magic, and keep your PCs more Cugelesque.

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.
