A decade ago, a great fireball streaked across the sky, traveling over the Pillars of Hercules, past Rome, and impacted deep into the wild lands beyond Roman control. As it went, the shooting star broke up, dropping fragments all across its path. Where these smaller pieces landed, dead men got up and rose from their graves, got up off the battle fields, and took arms against the living. To make matters worse, the newly dead—whether killed by the restless dead or more earthly causes—rose up to join the macabre host.

Life changed in Rome. Bodies were no longer buried or kept for viewing. They were cremated; their possessions given back to their families; their armor returned to the Legion. Plague followed in the poorer parts of the cities, leading to yet more uprisings of the newly dead. Rome eventually put down its local dead, but no sooner had it done so than a great rotting horde approached from beyond the lands of the Huns.

Still, life carried on, and Rome survived. After the death—some say assassination—of Emperor Tiberius, Caligula took control and began constructing massive defenses. Caligula’s Wall is the greatest of these, meant to hold back the ever-present throng of dead moving against Rome from the east.

From the wine-dark Aegean to the sea north of the Goths, this line consists of a twin-line of fortification with a river in between. The Rhine in the north and the Gaius Flumen, a new river dug to extend the fortification to the Aegean, stretches to the south. Along these twin walls are milecastles, each numbered and spaced five miles apart, each serving as an entry into the Dead Wilds and a blockade against it. They also have a second purpose of acting as a lighthouse along the frontier, helping to keep it marked and spread warnings; each milecastle has buckets of powdered metals they can use to change the color of the flames and signal neighboring towers.

Last night, Milecastle 42, the next castle in the line, turned their signal fire red for danger. Minutes later, the fire was extinguished all together. This morning, right before dawn, your Milecastle Commander gathered you together to go find out why.


This adventure has everything you need to get going fast and keep the action moving until the end!  It provides enough historical information to run the game no matter what your level of historical expertise is. 


Character creation is sped up by providing a generic soldier template that the player can improve and specialize in his or her own way.  That keeps set up time down, and gets the characters in the action faster!

A fully detailed map has been provided by Alyssa Faden, and additonal art has been provided by Ari Syharazad!

Enemies are detailed within, and there is a special surprise at the end of the adventure for the characters to deal with!

Kevin from Silver Gryphon here. I'm not sure what happened here. I'll do some investigating and see what happened here. The loss of the PDF was not due to something on our side of things.

Format

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.
