Rappan Athuk is back for Fifth Edition!

Not just back though, it is reloaded with all kinds of new extras including:

  • All new, full color artwork
  • Three new levels of the Dungeon itself
  • Three new Wilderness locations, including a three-level castle
  •  A new three-level satellite dungeon
  •  A sea-cave of terrible shark-men! A Kickstarter exclusive level released from the Vault of Tsathogga!
  • Updated color maps, available as separate PSD files for online play, are included for all levels
  • Scores of NPCs and Monsters, dozens of Magic Items and Spells, and the legendary Dung Monster await you!

Weighing in at over 600 pages, Rappan Athuk for Fifth Edition is an instant classic in the Mega-Dungeon genre, featuring 100+ keyed and color mapped areas with over 56 dungeon levels, several satellite dungeons (almost 20 additional levels!), 22 wilderness areas (ways to die before you ever reach the dungeon) and seemingly countless groups of bandits and monsters that prey on those fortunate enough to escape the halls and caves of Rappan Athuk with treasure in hand!

With decades of playtesting and use in campaigns across the globe, the Dungeon of Graves can be a foundation of any campaign or eviscerated into pieces and blended into any campaign!

The Dungeon of Graves, is nothing more and nothing less than a good, old–fashioned, First Edition dungeon crawl updated for the 5th Edition Roleplaying Game. Very difficult, it should strike fear into the hearts of the most stalwart adventurers. It offers an abundance of traps, tricks, and monsters. We hope that you find this module as fun and exciting as those thousands of players who have ventured into (and not as often out of) the endless caverns and mazes of Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves. Rappan Athuk is a difficult dungeon. Even the upper dungeon levels should not be attempted by a party of less than six mid-level characters.

Only truly veteran players should attempt this dungeon with lower level characters. In light of this, we added the satellite dungeons, including Bill Webb's very first work (from 1977), Tunnels of Terror! This 9-area dungeon was used as the introduction to his campaign and led his players to Rappan Athuk through play.

Currently, this product does not come with the separate maps for online play or use for a digital table. As always Drive Thru RPG has great customer care, and promptly issued a refund!

Hi I was just wondering if this was going to be print on demand at any point - I asked on the FGG forum and was informed by someone called 'silverhair2048' that if you were going to do this on POD then the binding wouldn't last and

I have been buying books from you guys for years and have never had a single problem with binding or anything else so I find his/her comments bang out of line

Could you let me know if your are planning to do this on POD and I will be doing business with yourselves from now on

Enormous book with a huge amount of content. If you want run an entire campaign, or three or four, in a dungeon this one will do it for you. The dungeon is more deadly than mnay other 5e adventures (much other FGG content) but smart play is usually enough to survive the day.

The dungeon gets much, much harder as you delve deeper and you will need to be ready for sudden jumps in difficulty. I handled this by milestone leveling every time they went down a level. They went into RA at 8th level and are 12th or so now. Several near fatalities but no one's perma-died just yet.

Lots of fun for those looking for a dungeon crawl. Some chances to RP of course, but this shines as an old fashioned dungeon crawl.

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.
