Old-School Essentials Adventure Anthology 2


Four short adventures for Old-School Essentials, taking adventurers from musty barrow mounds and gnomish shrines, to sinister cathedrals and accursed stepwells.

  • Barrow of the Bone Blaggards. A level 1–3 tomb adventure by Chance Dudinack. Skeletal brigands are harrying trade roads, dragging plunder and live prisoners back to their lair in a recently opened barrow mound. Within the mound, PCs face the rambunctious skeletons, and may discover the secret of their origin—the hapless necromancer who animated them, now held captive.
  • Shrine of the Oozing Serpent. A level 1–3 dungeon adventure by Nate Treme. The ruined forge-temple of an ancient gnomish sect is now home to a fetid grease dragon and her amphibious minions. PCs are tasked with slaying the dragon—and may unearth all manner of gnomish secrets along the way.
  • Cathedral of the Crimson Death. A level 4–6 chapel incursion adventure by Diogo Nogueira. In a land ravaged by plague, the Purifying Church of the Crimson Flame has turned from beacon of hope to cruel oppressor. PCs infiltrate the Church’s headquarters in an attempt to loot their treasures or end their reign of terror.
  • The Ravener’s Ghat. A level 6–8 temple ruin adventure by Brian Yaksha. The ruined temple of the accursed rakshasa overlord known as the Ravener has been recently rediscovered in the depths of the rainforest. Unbeknown to the treasure hunters who greedily eye the ruin, the presence of the Ravener still lingers, beckoning intruders to a most indignant doom.

Includes unlabelled maps for VTT use.

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.
