Written in Blood



Explore the land of Palegard, a lite setting for the Mud & Blood one page RPG. Lean & mean dark fantasy, with everything you need to run a campaign, or drop adventure sites into your existing world.

The Stain threatens all. Anyone who carries its mark can infect plant life, which slowly withers and dies after. Famine is on the horizon. In these desperate times, sometimes feeding yourself means hurting people.


Inside Written in Blood you'll find:

  • Three settlements with factions, tensions and a framework of districts and NPCs.
  • Four remote adventure locations that work like dungeons but use zones rather than specific measurements and grid maps.
  • Plenty of advice and tools for GMs from NPC and location name lists to options when it comes to stocking dungeons with challenges.
  • A light approach that supports GM improvisation. Each settlement and location is contained on two double spreads and gives you what you need and no more. No reading too much. The whole thing is 20 double spreads.


Written in Blood is flexible. Though it's designed for Mud & Blood, you can easily hack it into another OSR or cinematic RPG type system.

It has everything you need to start running Mud & Blood today.

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.
