This is a quick dungeon in card format co-produced by PocketLands and Ganesha Games.

Each deck is a standalone thematic dungeon to explore including its own quest, unique monsters and magic treasures. Fully compatible with “Four Against Darkness” game.

It is an official product for Four Against Darkness, and the core Four Against Darkness rulebook is required to play.

The deck contains:

  • 17 tarot-size, full color cards
  • Instructions are included on the cards
  • 2 unique monster cards
  • 2 unique magic item cards

Available sets:

  • The Stump of Elemental EvilDelve into the cave under an enormous rotting stump and slay the Tentacle Worm that has been kidnapping villagers.
  • Silent Mill: Strange bell toll noises come from the once silent, automated mill built by Pavlov the gnome. Grinding has stopped. Find a way to the Dusty Cellars and Repair the Mill.
  • 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.

I notice on the newer sets it says for the Treasure: Magic Treasure, Draw 1 magic treasure card.

What magic treasure cards would those be?

There are 2 "Magic treasure" cards in each set (Except the "stump"). So when you need to take a magic treasure just randomly (if not specified) take one of these two cards. Do you have several decks and your heroes didn`t manage to collect some of magic treasures? Thats ok, you can merge them to one treasure deck and draw from it next time instead of using the "Magic Treasure table" form rulebook.

Each of these Magic Treasure cards has its name, description, resell price and illustration. You can see examples just above (gnomish crossbow and trinket).

Can you mix and match the different decks together, or are they self-contained?

Every deck is a stand alone adventure (you still need the core rulebook), but if you are creative enough (and I`m sure you are if you playing 4ad) you quickly find the way to combine them. E.g. you easily can use your decks as an encounter generator for your overland travel between dungeons. Mixing it to one pile is not recomended tho, the balance go crazy.

Hey Alexey, just out of curiosity, moving forward is this going to be the standard format for the adventures? 12 cards for the rooms and their contents, two unique bosses, two unique magic items? Thanks in advance, looking forward to adding this to my growing card collection! 8)

yes, the project is still evolving, it is quite young and has amazing potential, but the format you mentioned seems to us robust and promising, we are going to stick to it in our following releases.

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.
