The Ancient Cemetery

Suggested Price $1.50

• A rich, atmospheric setting, with original hand-drawn illustrations

• Separate encounter tables for daytime and night-time events in the cemetery – a historical park of memories and recreation becomes a threatening abode of danger by night.

• A new creature – Wraithlord – an undead tyrant that seeks revenge on the living, able to control the minds of the weak. Accompanied by a sample character – Kagan the Merciless, an aged nomadic warlord, trapped in an ancient tomb under millennia of rubble.

• A new magical item - Ischial’s Rod – a powerful sceptre that can raise and control undead.

• Not your typical graveyard – the cemetery has plenty to find for the living, including sacred druidic sites, festivals of poetry and commemoration, philosopher’s statues and sacred monastic sites.

• 19 pages of detailed adventure – two hand drawn maps, a table of rumours, forty atmospheric encounters, buried treasures, corrupt guards and body-snatchers, and even an elderly flower lady!

Built upon centuries of once-great civilizations, the Ancient Cemetery has several layers of burial sites, each detailing a historical chapter of the surrounding region. From the ancient barrows of tribal warriors, to the elaborate tombs of modern merchants and noblemen, to the uniform masses of pauper’s graves – this cemetery is rich in history, atmosphere, and perhaps… danger.

At day, it is a place of contemplation, relaxation, and even occasional festivities. At night, dangers lurk in the dark – graverobbers, magical guardians, aspiring necromancers and worse.

This setting is designed to fit in any adventure, though it might be most appropriate for being placed around a sprawling cityscape, in an area reminiscent of late-medieval Europe. With little adaptation, it should be ready to test your adventurers of any level, in any setting of your choice.

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.
