Welcome to Captain Snowmane's Guided Cruise Through the Domains of Dread! Captain Snowmane—that's me, and I have the distinct... pleasure of trying to keep you alive on this journey. Don't dangle your hands into the water, for Heavens' sake! In some of these Domains, it might grasp back at you...

Now, let me give you the brochure pitch of all these wonderfully gruesome and wickedly grotesque new Domains of Dread our little jaunt will take us through!


In this book, we prepared Nine New Domains of Dread to horrify and delight you and your players! You can see a preview and short description for each below.

Each Domain of Dread comes with:

  • an Overview Page to introduce you to the Domain and its Darklord
  • a quick run-down of Noteworthy Features for the DM to keep in mind
  • fleshed-out Settlements and Sites to visit during your adventures in the Domain
  • in-depth Backstory and Roleplay Advice for the Domain's Darklord
  • Adventure Seeds to throw your players straight into the action
  • heaps of Additional Story Hooks and information to make the Domain come to life
  • Notes by Captain Snowmane herself to help live throug the experience
  • suggestions for Stat Blocks for the Darklords and even some unique new creatures
  • where appropriate, Domains also come with guidance to Create Characters from the Domain



Belissia, Domain of Toxic Positivity. Darklord Larian Songmoon is ever disappointed by his disciples failing to reach enlightenment, despite all the New Age fads he throws at them—behind his cheerful facade, rage lurks.


Eludia, Domain of the Unshackled City. Eludia is a would-be utopia beneath a sky of maddening nebulae, defined by endless civil war between it's genius Founders—Eludia's four competing Darklords!


Maru, Domain of Caste Violence. Maru is a visceral mirror of caste violence—its Darklord Vajra Baahu sins even in "atonement", pleading with gods who no longer listen as his sacrificial yagya fire parches the land and consumes his people.


Glimmerdusk, Domain of Corrupted Fantasies. Glimmerdusk is a sparkly story-book of a Domain, written into existence by renowned children's author P.B. Hoyles—but his fairytales always seem to take a dark turn...


Sumun, Domain of the Grieving King. Sumun is the Domain of the Grieving King, wandering the desert endlessly in search of a cure for death so nobody has to loose a friend again as he did... but neglecting his people in the process.


Muulberry Pasture, Domain of Infernal Agriculture. Tickle Pig haunts your dreams in idyllic Muulberry Pasture—this devil wants to drive you mad before you reach his factory... because that's when long pig bacon tastes best!


Mornmire, Domain of Inevitability. Shrouded in fog, Mornmire's very buildings mutate while Darklord Mobius Inanis races to uncover the secrets that might save his domain—only to be driven more mad by what he finds.


Vendledorf, Domain of Lamenting Memories. A shifting wasteland of forgotten legacies, where people struggle futilely against oblivion—like their Darklord, desperate to leave a mark on anything... and anyone.


Sikaga, Domain of Lights and Glamour. In Sikaga, praise and applause are life: a compliment can cost you a year—and you'll still want to adore Darklord Valerie Valentina, the greatest singer who ever was.

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.
