The Diocesi of Montfroid

Selected Option:

Gobelins creep through the chill pine forests and loup-garous cry out under the gibbous moon. Villagers shiver within the palisade, only the midnight churchbells to comfort them in the deep winter night. Cruel Fae and grim beasts and fell pagan spears press in on them from every side, but God and the tales of their mighty heroes of old shall preserve them. This is Montfroid, a cold shore on the coast of Couront, and the weak and foolish linger only in sad tales.

The Diocesi of Montfroid is a gazetteer set in the Latter Earth of the Worlds Without Number fantasy role-playing game. An isolated frontier province of a hard-pressed kingdom, Montfroid is a wild land of isolated villages and fearsome foes, with the ruins of two prior ages of settlement scattered amid forbidding pine forests and craggy hills. Its folk cling to their faith and the chansons of their heroic past, trusting in both to drive back their countless foes.

Within the pages of this gazetteer, you'll find...

  • A complete campaign setting for novice adventurers, with challenges and situations suitable for a band of 1st to 3rd level heroes.
  • Full details of a half-dozen villages and the chief town of Castelnou, each with NPCs and problems for budding adventurers to encounter.
  • GM helps such as a Montfroid bestiary, local name tables, premade retainers, and tips on dealing with crime, taxes, and other matters of interest to adventurers.
  • Milon's End, a fully-developed four-level beginner dungeon with GM tips on handling the actual running of the adventure.

While the Diocesi of Montfroid is set in the kingdom of Couront mentioned in the Atlas of the Latter Earth, it's been built to fit neatly into any conveniently remote chunk of coastline in your own fantasy world. In the same vein, Milon's End has been fashioned to suit any location where an abandoned manor might be found.

So sally forth into the wilds, benevolent reader. Whether playing Worlds Without Number or another old-school inspired game, the Diocesi of Montfroid gives you everything you need to start a fresh campaign of youthful heroism, glorious deeds, and potentially tragic endings.

The Diocesi of Montfroid provides a nice starter setting divided roughly into thirds: 1. Gazetteer, 2. GM Tools, and 3. a 4-level dungeon. Some thought has been put into the plight of the new GM with a modest amount of explicit advice on consuming and [...]

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.
