  • Forest of the Spider Queen: Pave the way through a dense and heavy woodland infested with spawn of Spider Queen.
  • Lamentations of the Marsh Hag: An evil hag, slain by heroes in times of old, has risen in MurkWaters again to wreak havoc.
  • Curse of Castle Ravenstein: A lover’s quarrel between Vorigans brothers tragically ended in the death of Elisabah. She cursed the Vorigans, who became fiends, and the region plunged into darkness.
  • Roads of Peril: The carriage wheels creak over the bumpy old road -- a difficult, dangerous path that runs through forests and swamps, outposts and plagued villages. A path haunted by greedy bandits and supernatural creatures. Your job it to escort it safely to its final destination.

Hi, Maik. This deck was the first one in the series, and it is the only one which doesn't have separated monster and treasure cards in it yet, their stats are incorporated to the adventure cards themselves.

I’m a tad confused. For all of the 4 Against Dungeon Decks (I have them all), do I shuffle them before starting? Or do I play through them in the original order of cards? Basically, is the adventure different every time, or is it “predetermined”?

Hi Jacob,
don't mix different dungeon decks in one. But you shuffle the dungeon deck a lot while you're playing it, so it generates your adventure quite differently each time.
Basically it works like a classic 4AD game, but instead of rolls and tables, you draw a card and look for a specific text box. As simple as that and very fast way to play.

Hey there! I can't seem to find the stats for the Tentacle Worm, either in the cards themselves or in the 4AD rulebook. Could you help me find them?

Tentacle Worm can be found on Card 12 of The Stump of Elemental Evil.

Thank you! For some reason, I thought it would be its own card or entry in the rulebook. Time to play!

You should level up your characters as per the Four Against Darkness core book on pages 46-47.

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.
