The Monsters Within

Suggested Price $2.00

THE MONSTERS WITHIN is the sequel of The Nightmare.

This adventure starts right at the end of the previous one, where the characters escaped the dream-caged where they were imprisoned. With no memory of any recent event, the players have to take back control of their ship and escape from the monsters that boarded it overnight. Along the way the characters might make new allies and, as they start to remember what's happening, come to a terrible conclusion.

The adventure itself is divided into two parts. The first one is a small dungeon-crawl: the players must make their way around the vessel, muster the crew, and take control of the ship. In the second part they must engage with two vessels and try to make their escape. Rules for naval combat are available on the official books.

The Monsters Within uses the stress mechanic that was introduced in The Nightmare and it includes the map of the ship the characters are on as well as the statblocks of two custom monsters and of the three vessels that are featured.

The Nightmare is available (PWYW) at

I hope you enjoy this adventure, stay tuned for the third and final chapter: The Star Pact.

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.
