Today's Deal of the Day is the Gloamhold Campaign Guide from Raging Swan Press.
Its a setting. Its a mega dungeon. Its a mega dungeon setting.
Sixty pages. Normally $5.95 in PDF, Gloamhold is currently on sale for $1.66 in PDF. Its worth $1.66 for inspiration alone.
Glowering amid dark rumours and terrible stories of desperate adventure, death, betrayal and glimmering treasures squat the unutterably ancient halls of Gloamhold. This crumbling, benighted, haunted dungeon complex of unknown, but undeniably vast, extent is buried deep within the grim and brooding spray-drenched headland of the Mottled Spire. It is a place of legends, madness and death. Within this towering, wave-lashed shard of limestone lies the labyrinthine passageways and chambers of Gloamhold’s outer reaches and, beyond them, the benighted precincts and canals of the legend-shrouded Twilight City.I love the idea that it was written with Old School Gaming in mind (its system neutral)
That image of Gloamhold and surroundings sold me. Beautiful picture.ReplyDelete
I got this as well, on first glance through, it appears to just be summary ideas for a mega-dungeon, with just a side view of it and no other maps. No wonder it is so cheap. However, i guess one could take these summaries and enhance other true mega-dungeon modules, with Gloamhold.ReplyDelete
Agreed, if you go to RPGNow they have a bunch of support material for the area around the dungeon but none (that I could find) of the dungeon levels themselves. Hopefully that's coming.Delete
I bought it and I'm disappointed because there are no dungeon maps or encounters.ReplyDelete
