The Oracle Issue 06


The Oracle* Issue Five - Swamp Theme!

Just as all characters are better equipped when they have a bag of holding, a potion of healing and a sunrod, a DM is better equipped when supplied with a steady stream of new material and ideas.

And that's what we have for you here.

*This is the publication previous known as the Dungeon Master's Adventure Pack - this issue it is rebranded and comes with a brand new layout out! (More space, pictures and art!)

This month we bring you, in one fully illustrated PDF the following system-neutral Fantasy RPG material:

  • DM Advice - Thoughts on using Aztex / Mayan / Incan cultures, the difference between a swamp and a Bayou and general tips on using these types of locations
  • 12 Swamp Story Hooks
  • 1 Detailed NPC organisation - The Silent Fangs... lizardkin assassins!
  • 16 Non Player Characters with motives and descriptions
  • A detailed look at lizardkin ecology and culture including different types of lizard people including Starborn Lizardkin, Werecrocs and regular lizardkin as well as variations.
  • 3 Swamp Creatures
  • 4 Magic items
  • 2 Swamp Events
  • 30 Trinkets and Treasures (small items that can be found in pockets etc)
  • 4 Locations within and around the Necropolis
  • 12 Things to See
  • 6 Random Encounters
  • 1 Picture Prompt

Our inspiration goes back to the early years of White DwarfDragon and Dungeon Magazines as well as other less well-known titles like Ares and Level-Up.

Fully Illustrated

Have a look at the quick preview and you will see the great range of images inside!






Why System-Neutral?

Because we personally play multiple games and systems, and so do virtually all the DMs and GMs that we know. By making it system-neutral, we can focus on strong storytelling without getting hung up on the mechanics and conversions across game systems.

And, let's face it – if we featured even just the top three fantasy RPGs, that would leave out a whole bunch of others.

So, we are embracing them all with clever, interesting, story-rich material that people can easily convert to their desired system.

We have been developing the DMAP format for over three years, and we are confident that you will find it entertaining and useful, regardless of the fantasy RPG system you use.

Professionally Edited

Our editor is Jane Spencer, a qualified editor and proofreader with over two decades of editing, publishing and literary project management experience. (She's also an RPG gamer and a lovely person!) And last, but not least, we are ably assisted by a number of player testers, content providers and technical advisers.

Modern Format

Created in a modern landscape format making it idea for reading on tablets, laptops and smart phones.

100% Guarantee

We have every confidence that any fantasy RPG fan reading the magazine will find it both entertaining and useful. However, if we've gotten that wrong, if you find that it is neither entertaining nor useful - then we will give you your money back without any fuss, argument or hassle.

You can't say fairer than that can you?

Product Information
File Size:
88.75 MB
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.
