You thought you had found a peaceful farm to spend the night at.

But all is not as it seems: the farmer’s son has been missing for 5 days!

The young fool went seeking fame and fortune in an ancient barrow mound.


Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters! 

In this adventure your players are tasked with finding and rescuing a missing sage and, if possible, completing his final quest and recovering the lost treasures he was seeking in an ancient barrow mound. Inside the barrow mound your players will face a host the vampire court of a long dead kingdom, and all their undead and demonic minions! It’s up to them to stop these evil beings from breaking free and laying waste to the countryside. So sharpen those stakes and pull out the garlic, it’s time for some vampire hunting! 

This supplement contains a completely original ONE SHOT adventure, fully detailed and ready for immediate use with very little preparation by the GM or the players! Inside you will find great Old-school art and a detailed isometric map, with keyed encounters for each area. This module also includes a fully detailed map of the nation of Dun Bhriste, done in the Old School style, with information for further exploration. A quick night of role-playing fun right at your fingertips!

This module also provides wonderful background information and additional areas for adventure for those GM’s setting their campaigns in the author’s ever expanding campaign world, which now comprises four different kingdoms: JarlburghAlderburghThe Red Eagle Barony, and Dùn Bhriste

This adventure takes place in the woods near the Dubh Glas farm, which is located near the farming village of Clachan Fial, in the author’s campaign world. Clachan Fial is a medium sized village which lies just south of the well traveled trade route between Dùn Bhriste, this region’s capitol city, and Baile Átha Quinith, the capital of the neighboring nation of The Red Eagle Barony. It is the setting for the Starry Knight Press module S02 Clash at Fort Valour and the adventure Lair of the Toad, in supplement SR1 Zero Level Player Rules. (all of which are available for purchase on DriveThruRPG). 

This book features 28 pages of excitement and thrills, with players facing a horde of blood sucking vamps, and it is sure to please discerning GMs and players everywhere!

As an ADDED BONUS, as a purchaser of one of my modules you also get, ABSOLUTELY FREE, a copy of the inaugural issue of my Old School RPG zone, CAVALIER ATTITUDE!!

File Size:

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.
