The Bloody Engines of the Dinosaur-Men

An OSR-compatible adventure for 3-6 characters levelled 3-5

What makes the screams echoing down from Eira Peak? After the recent avalanche that forced the people of Eirata to file their homes, many went missing. If they were killed by the falling ice, where are the bodies? Who are the veiled merchants selling exotic meats and fruit on the northern roads? And what are the strange many-horned "dragons" devouring trees and melons at terrific rates in the Salka Marsh?

When the PCs set out to answer these questions, they will discover an ancient and vile slaughterhouse full of killer machines, murderous heat, toxic fumes, frightened captives, and monsters from beyond time.

  • A multi-path dungeon that rewards stealth and cunning.

  • Contains no coin treasure, 3,180gp in special treasures, 4 potions, one magic item, and a few doses of poison and exotic weapons.

  • Up to 2,425 XP in combat encounter experience in the dungeon.

  • Tactically complex and timed encounters.

  • Compatible with any OSR game, and made with Labyrinth Lord

If you like dinosaurs, and revel in the prospect of intelligent dinosaur civilization invading your world, then this is a carefully thought out scenario doing exactly that. Even without a practical game application, it is a fun read.

Product Information
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.
