Blade and Greystar shuffled around the corner of the ledge. They were now more than fifty meters high, hunting for John Ryder, the evil high priest of the Y-Rune sect. He was back in town, ready to plunge another six-hundred-and-sixty-six souls into hell. And he could be around every corner. Including this one.

Have you ever longed for that feeling of wonder of an Old School role playing game, but wished you could have that sense of adventure of a story-telling game too? Do you love cinematic combat, but do you dislike too many rules and charts? Or are you new to role playing altogether? In all these cases, time-tested Dark Dungeon may be the game for you.

The Dark Dungeon Starter Kit, some friends, and some ten-sided dice are all you need to start playing. The rules are easy to learn, and once you know them, you'll rarely have to consult the book. Yet, in the book you'll find eleven templates to base your hero on, dozens of skills descriptions, and a step by step guide to building your hero.

Dark Dungeon also sports an innovative system of magick - where you can dream up and weave your own spells; medieval-like Saints who may aid you on your quests; and a simple streamlined system to roll your dice and decide what happens.

For the Storytellers, there's a step by step guide to setting up your adventures, ideas to get you started, a selection of creatures and treasures, and a full fledged adventure featuring a pirate's lost treasure in the Spinward Marshes.

The Dark Dungeon Starter Kit has dozens of examples and dozens of illustrations - one on almost every other page. For new players you'd like to tell about role playing, there's a glossary of terms, explaining all those strange new words. Curious? Try the free sample!

"A delightful system. Lean, elegant and flexible, but still allowing considerable depth." RpgGeek

This is a friendly, easy to learn system that invites you to play more than hack'n slash. The book itself reads like a magic book: on every page there is a funny little story, an intriguing adventure seed or a beatiful drawing. I especially liked the [...]

This system is ideal for a group of people who are interested in a RPG which will allow you to quickly and adequately deal with the technical aspect of any RPG (i.e. the dice-throwing bit). It provides both players and DM's with an easy-to-grasp system [...]

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.
