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.

Come with us on a Quest in The Shambles. A lost, ruined city whose streets are paved with gold. To catch a wyrm, before it brings death and destruction to the adventure's settlement of Tent Town.

This adventure is an introductory Quest for newly created characters and is suitable for starting Referees. It can be linked with the adventure in the main OpenQuest rulebook and the Lost Outpost QuickStart to form a small mini-campaign.

It contains two adventure locations to explore during the Quest for the Wrym.

Tent Town. A ramshackle settlement of tents and wooden buildings amongst the ruins of previous settlements ransacked by raiders. Centred on the Mound of Maia, it is home to pilgrims visiting that temple to the Earth Mother and would-be treasure hunters who seek their fortune in The Shambles. Tensions are already high between these two groups, and the appearance of the Wrym over the walls has brought matters to a boiling point. 

The Squares district of The Shambles. Once a thriving home for artisans and well to do merchants, with a Library, boutique shops and even an arena, it's now infested with Goblins and shambling dead. The Quest will ultimately lead the characters here, for this is where the wyrm makes its lair.

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.
