More Dispatches from the Crowking- In the Depths of the Megadungeon!

"All about them as they lay hung the darkness, hollow and immense, and they were oppressed by the loneliness and vastness of the dolven halls and endlessly branching stairs and passages. The wildest imaginings that dark rumour had ever suggested to the hobbits fell short of the actual dread and wonder of Moria."

                        -J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Megadungeons are a treasured tradition in fantasy role-playing games, from their humble entrances at the top, perhaps guarded by a few grubby goblins, to the ultimate power of evil festering at the very bottom – the twentieth level!  In between, a host of horrors, ecosystems, and, hopefully, a bit of golden reward for our adventurers.  Think you can’t create a megadungeon of your own, that the only recourse is to spend your gold on someone else’s?  Look no further than Dispatches of the Raven Crowking IV- Megadungeons and Campaigns, the fourth installment from Daniel J. Bishop and published by Purple Duck Games.  This great issue discusses the literary background of megadungeons (the beloved J.R.R. being one of them), selecting themes and monsters to populate your dungeon, treasures and encounters, and a great list of evocative example areas that can give you ideas to confound, support, or help destroy would-be adventurers. 

This product is completely Dungeon Crawl Classics compatible and inspired by Appendix N reading lists, and is a great addition to your fantasy gaming library, coming from the mind of a top-notch game and supplement writer.  Get Daniel J. Bishop’s Dispatches of the Raven Crowking IV- Megadungeons and Campaigns, from the delving describers at Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

Format
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.
