Ten Buried Blades: An Adventure for Godbound

Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

In the market town of Gongfang a restless magistrate oppresses the people, forcing them to surrender sons and daughters to serve a mysterious sorcerer on Red Crow Mountain. In the countryside, a wealthy rice broker torments the common folk with his extortionate exactions, driving the desperate into the forest to escape his thugs and bandits. And beneath those green boughs there are whispers of an illicit god, of a Golden Lord who will bring justice to the afflicted. Gongfang's fragile peace cannot last. But who will strike the blow that ends it, and who will pick up the fragments that remain?

Ten Buried Blades is an introductory adventure for the Godbound role-playing game of heroic demigods, available in both a Free Version and a Deluxe Edition. The misfortune-plagued border town of Gongfang is presented for the heroes' attention, with a fistful of calamities and sinister figures for the PCs to encounter. As an introductory adventure, Ten Buried Blades is written to help the novice Godbound GM and is structured to answer many of the questions that come up when you're hurling a pantheon of young divinities against an uncaring world.

Within these pages, you'll find….

  • Challenges and encounters built to match a pantheon of newly-created Godbound. Some can be overcome by divine force, while others compel the PCs to deal with situations that don't yield so easily to a bolt of celestial fury.
  • Notes on the Dulimbaian border town of Gongfang, the sinister monastery on Red Crow Mountain, the country estate of Big Feet Zu, and the hidden temple of the Golden Lord
  • Tips and examples for using divine Influence to change the situation in Gongfang
  • Information on what the Dulimbaian government might do when a pantheon of demigods shows up in a border town
  • Conversion notes for moving the adventure to a different location in your campaign
  • A brand-new True Strife, the fearsome Strife of Torment Defied for the damage-sponge titans of your group
  • Several new Dulimbaian theurgic invocations
  • A new low magic path, the Way of Pure Petitions for the austere adepts of Dulimbaian magic who bring luck and banish evil spirits with their sacred writings.

You can get Ten Buried Blades in PDF+epub+mobi formats, or grab the print edition which includes all the digital files as well. Note that the print edition is largely black-and-white; I've had it printed in standard color heavyweight due to the better quality of paper that format allows.

So get it now! Your budding heroes need a trial to match their mettle, and the dark forces in Gongfang await!

Getting "page not found" when clinking the full preview link.

Forgive me, but I wanted some advice:

I read in the book that, if you want to change things up and put this story into a different nation, you can change things like the setting, terms, etc. Now, I was thinking about doing that, but I'm not entirely sure how and I was wondering if I could get some advice.

Right now, I'm thinking of putting this in the Raktine Confederacy. Any advice on what to change?

Is there any way that a full-sized preview could be provided? The quick preview is very small and hard to get a look at.

"Grab the print edition which includes all the digital files as well" - I've ordered the print edition, but no digital files are available AFAICS.

I think it assumes you would choose the "print + PDF" which is the same price as just "print".

Just noticed this now- if you accidentally picked the "print only" option, just drop me a note at over at and I'll make sure you get a code for the files.

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.
