The City of Eyes

Suggested Price $5.00


It's not too late too close this page, and go and find an adventure about happy-go-lucky halflings, or emotionally stable young adventurers. This is not that story. You can still walk away, and find some other engagement that your players will forgive you for running. 

Open this little document, and you will be introduced to the wretched streets of Elysium. Home of aberrations, mystery and futile quests for meaning in the drowned streets of the tortured city. Escape is unlikely. Enjoyment fleeting. I implore you, turn away and don't look back. Mind flayers stalk streets plagued by invisible death. Curses bubble from ancient evils sleeping beneath the water.

Questions lead to questions, which evolve into answers you will only regret asking for. 

Go whilst you still can. There is nothing here for you but death.

  • Prologue: Welcome to Elysium
  • Chapter One: The Crooked House
  • Chapter Two: The Broken Prison

An adventure for characters of level 15+


  • An introduction to Elysium, a Ravenloft domain filled with eldritch mystery and drowned secrets, including Life In Elysium, The Rule Unspoken and the Marks of Horror that set Elysium apart.
  • Guidance on Madness in Elysium, with Elysian Madness tables for your horror/amusement.
  • A list of Elysian locations, some of which will be expanded in later releases.
  • Elysian random encounter tables, day & night. 
  • An Elysian Wild Magic table, four magic items and 10 Elysian trinkets.
  • A 4 page expanded location - The Crooked House, in which we meet the Duchess and her parade of dead husbands.
  • 12 page location - The Broken Prison, where the shadows of gods walk amongst men, and a statblock for the mind-eating Groblets.
  • Three new character backgrounds: the Eldritch Detective, the Information Broker and the Tempter of Fate.
  • The long-suffering Elysian character race, with two subraces.
  • The first One Page Woes collection, included here for your convenience, which contains thirteen reasons to be thoroughly miserable.

If you (for some unknown and masochistic reason) enjoy anything about Elysium as it stands, let me know by leaving a review. The later chapters are still in the works, so if you have suggestions for things you might like to see more of, there's still time to insert more unhappiness in the shifting streets of the City of Eyes.

I love your first two chapters here. What kind of a release schedule do you have planned for the rest?

Thanks! I'm scrubbing up the main pdf to clarify some things, which should be done soon. I'm hoping to release the remaining chapters over the next month or two, if not sooner :D

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
