Hi! I've been wanting to order these for a long time. I've been saving up to be able to purchase a physical copy and now I'm trying to decide which one I should get. Is there any way we could get a description of what distinguishes them from one another? Are they themed in some way?

Is there a map for the temple of umberlee in Oceans of Stone?
Customer avatar

There is a crude map on the threeflings which will at least helps visualize it. It's a great adventure, but then this whole collection is amazing. Thanks!

Do the adventures in Uncaged link together or are they separate one-shot adventures?
Customer avatar
Amanda L September 10, 2019 3:45 pm UTC
They are separate one-shot adventures designed to be able to tie into a variety of settings. Some people have played them linked together, others have included them within their current campaigns, and others have played them as one-shots.

Hi, Will these books be a limited print or can I wait a few months and buy all of them together?
Customer avatar

You can wait a few months! We don't plan to stop offering the print editions any time soon.

Small comment: As of right now, the quick and full-size preview seems to be showing the handout document instead of the main document.

Will investigate! Thanks for the heads up!

Hi! I am a new DM looking at buying this book to run with my two siblings. I am looking for something that has several shorter one-shot adventures, as we can't play regularly enough to warrant running a full campaign.
Does this book contain longer campaign style adventures or short adventures that can be done in one or two nights? Thank you!
Customer avatar
Ashley W July 04, 2019 3:02 am UTC
Hi Megan! This is a collection of short adventures, each designed to take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, so you'd have plenty of options for running one- or two-night sessions. :) Hope that helps!

Awesome, thank you for letting me know!

It is, and no PDF issues with iOS. Uncaged was good, this is great.
Customer avatar
Clive S July 03, 2019 7:11 pm UTC
Considering how good the first one was that will be amazing. Even if half as good as the first one, it will be a great book.

I expect though it will live up to the same level of excellence. I am definitely purchasing it as PDF and then as a POD.

I always believe in supporting real magic.

Excellent interview on Todd Talks Uncaged Anthology Vol 2

considering the first one is why i'm leery about shelling out $36.00 for the 2nd one. you can rush out and buy the 2nd book like I did the first book, but i'm going to wait till some more reviews are in. i'm not getting taken again. best of luck with your pdf and hard cover. I hope it was everything you were looking for.

the art was really good in the first book.

SP S July 19, 2019 9:47 pm UTC
no issues or defects in the merchandise shouldn't be a selling point, it should be a given. i'm glad you're happy with your purchase, but i'm going to wait till more reviews come out.

Ashley W. has replied to your comment on Uncaged | Volume II:
The theme of all four volumes is the same so if you didn't enjoy Vol. I, I don't think this volume, and the rest of the collection, is for you. Can I request that you abstain from commenting here if the project does not interest you?

Yes Ashley W. you can request that I abstain from commenting here. Best of luck to you in all of your endeavors current and future.

As blown away as I was by the cover art for Volume 1 this cover is even better!
I can't wait for print to go live so I can get my copy!

What's the theme for the second volume?
Customer avatar
Ashley W July 02, 2019 6:50 pm UTC
Hi Ian! The volumes don't necessarily have themes; it's a new collection of adventures with the same overarching theme of the series, which is to reinvent myths and folktales. There are quite a few Slavic/Russian-inspired adventures, however, but not all of them fall under that. :)

Yessssssssssssss. Will there be more tier 4 adventures in vol III and IV?
Customer avatar
Ashley W July 02, 2019 3:38 pm UTC
I believe there are a couple. We are also working on a 5th book that will be all tier 4 adventures!
Customer avatar
Clive S July 03, 2019 7:14 pm UTC
Hi Ashley,

" all tier 4 adventures"

That is great news.

There is so many tier 1 - 2 adventures, some tier 3 and almost no tier 4.

Besides that, what better source for Tier 4 adventures than Myths un caged.
Customer avatar
Rebecca W October 31, 2019 2:19 pm UTC
I was a bit sad to see that none of the tier 4 adventures made it in to Volume III. (I'm commenting here to reference my prior comment and so that the first comment on Volume III isn't something negative since it is, as always, a really fantastic volume). Any chance that Vol IV has some tier 4 stuff in it? Or will I need to wait for the 5th volume for the tier 4 stuff?
Customer avatar
Ashley W October 31, 2019 3:26 pm UTC
Hey Rebecca! The tiers/levels are usually dictated by the creatures the writers choose to focus on in their adventures. It just happens that many of the creatures that fit our Uncaged theme/goal are in the 1-3 range. Our 5th book will be all tier 4. :)

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.
