Dune: Desertfall Adventure (PDF)


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.

This 34-page introductory adventure for the Dune: Adventures in the Imperium roleplaying game brings the player characters to Arrakis to prepare for the arrival of House Atreides. Soon after planetfall, the player characters must ensure the official Residency is secure and try to unearth any spies, assassins, or other potential threats that may be lurking in Arrakeen.

Desertfall can be played using the pregenerated characters included, but will work equally well with a new group of player characters from a different House.

This new version of Desertfall has undergone a few small changes since its release as part of the Corebook Preview. We have adjusted the presentation of some characters, but we’ve also taken the opportunity to offer new guidance about adapting this adventure to an ongoing campaign with a House of your own, and included additional notes on how to continue the adventure if some of the sub plots are not resolved.

As it is no longer a preview, Desertfall no longer contains any of the Rules or Setting information. We assume the reader has access to the Dune: Adventures in the Imperium Core Rulebook.

Just finished the Desertfall adventure. A decently complex starting adventure that really captures the spirit of the game (and Dune). The players were genuinely delighted at the outcome and looking forward to playing for of this game.

I told myself that I would support this system for as long as I was able provided they cranked out decent content. Too many times I've seen good systems abandoned because they didn't have follow up content, or what was there had been poorly written.

is it worth it for people who already have the core book?

If you just have the Core Rulebook, absolutely.
Its a whole new adventure.

If you have the Preview possibly not as while we have another page or two of notes about changing and adapting it the adventure is not substantially different to the Preview version.

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.
