Lair of the Tarka

Suggested Price $1.00

When skies are black and pale winds moan… And old men grip their gnarled thrones… And children shiver ‘round the hearth at home… it stalks the woods… alone. 

A monster- neither beast nor man- seeks the foolish and lost within its domain. Legends speak of a time when it served as a guardian spirit, but those days have passed. Now it serves a different purpose: as the story to keep children good… the boogey-man of the woods. 

Lair of the Tarka is designed as a challenging adventure for low and mid-level players. The optimal strategy is to avoid the titular beast and collect the riches inside. If players are not prepared, they may meet their end on the claws of the beast or other creatures inside, so consider this fact carefully when adding it to your game.

  • Explore a short dungeon filled with challenges, lore, and valuable loot!
  • Encounter a monster inspired by legendary beasts like Bigfoot, and the Wendigo.
  • Rollable table for random encounters featuring six monsters including two custom-designed creatures!
  • Helpful tips on how to run random encounters included!

Hi Stefan!

Thank you for the comment. I envisioned that the Tarka has a 3 point economy for legendary actions each round. For example, it can do a claw attack and misty step in a single round, but not two misty steps, since that action costs 2 points.

If you find further points for improvement, please let me know. I'm always interested in knowing what people find enjoyable and how I can make a better product. I hope you enjoy the adventure!

Very informative. I see that you do not illustrate how many legendary actions the Tarka can take. How many would you say?

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.
