Fragments of Fear: the Grimoire of Scarmarque

A quickly customizable magic item and monster for any campaign.

Shrouded in mystery, the Grimoire of Scarmarque is a text most scholars think a mere legend: but it very much exists, and so does the Beast that protects it, killing anyone who dares to read the dark secrets hidden within the fragments of fear that text holds.

Fragments of Fear is a supplement for any campaign, tiers 1 to 3. Designed to suit the DM's needs, it is a magic item any player would die to possess, but one they may well pay that price for having.

Includes the following:

  • The Grimoire of Scarmarque, a magical item that grants a powerful boon to the first person who reads it, and always seems to find its way back to that person;
  • history of the Grimoire, the Canon who wrote it, the dark secret they discovered, and why the Beast must be contained;
  • The Beast of Scarmarque, the guardian of the Grimoire of Scarmarque, complete with tactics, motives, and suggestions on how to make your Beast truly terrifying;
  • Stat blocks for tiers 1, 2, and 3, complete with new abilities to help it grow with time based on its previous encounters with the party;
  • Suggestions for how to design the Grimoire and Beast to best meet your campaign and game world;
  • Tips on adding the Grimoire and Beast to the Forgotten RealmsEberronRavenloft, and Radiant Citadel campaign settings;
  • Guidance on how to expand 11 published campaigns, including Curse of StrahdRime of the Frost MaidenThe Wilds Beyond the Witchlight, and Waterdeep adventures!

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.
