In the Dead of Night

Suggested Price $1.00

Ah, the autumn has finally arrived. The cosy time of falling leaves, sparkling campfires and the dead rising from their graves... wait... what?

In the Dead of Night, your adventurers are given one simple mission – guard the graveyard during the most dangerous night of the year. As the mystical energies of this hallowed eve converge, all things dread and undead become increasingly active. It is on this night that ancient liches seek their misplaced phylacteries, ghostly orphans hope to find their long-lost toys, and a melancholic vampire contemplates the romance of going out with the sunrise. For adventurers in need of gold and glory, it is the busiest night of the year.

This is a self-sufficient quest, designed for one spooky evening of play, perfect for low-level characters, newcomers to the hobby and higher level solo play. It features a list of events, which culminate in a boss-fight where you have to protect the one good necromancer hoping to set things right. You can play it as a one-shot, or easily include it in any campaign.

In the Dead of Night includes the following features:

  • All you need to run a special Halloween game, or a spooky session on any other evening.
  • A list of 20 random encounters for a chilling graveyard shift. Some events are dangerous, some humorous, all atmospheric.
  • Instructions for a final encounter – protect Disibid the White Necromancer as she finishes her ritual and calms the graveyard spirits.
  • Special, hand-drawn Halloween design!
  • The tentative approval of Derick Shadowbanekiller, the famed halfing vampire-hunter, the grimmest of grimdark heroes.

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.
