Hexed Places - Whispering Vale

Hexed Places - Whispering Vale


Thick scrub and patchy woods slow travelers who attempt the Whispering Vale, a hilly wind-blown pass through steep-sided mountains. Several barely discernable trails lead into the Vale, but they all disappear into the wilderness. The ruins of Haver Hill, a tiny village, overlook the Narrow Deep, the bottomless lake that lies at the lowest point in the valley. West of Narrow Deep, the burned-out shell of Lamoga Shrine stands in the middle of half-flooded scrublands dotted with grave markers. A second shallow lake, Greenwater, lies near the south edge of the Vale. To the north and west, the snow-covered peaks of Skyknife and Windscream rise above the surrounding mountains. Dergar Peak, named after the only climber to reach its summit, is even taller. There is little reason to traverse the Whispering Vale, but adventurers sometimes visit the area seeking the Scepter of the Snake. Religious historians claim Lamoga Shrine is the final resting place of this relic of the secretive Lamoga Order.

Hexed Places are outdoor locations and encounters based on the classic six-mile hex format and OSR sensibilities. Use these locales as a quick side adventure, to fill out your campaign sandbox, or expand upon them to create a multi-session campaign. Each includes an overview of the region, expanded one-mile per hex maps for players and GMs (PDF and VTT format), encounter and rumor tables, and descriptions of individual locations, encounters, and features within the hex. Files are available for individual download and as a single zip file.

Note: Product previews show a selection of pages; they're not sequential. Eventually, all Hexed Places end up in a discount bundle.

Hexed Places - Stony Fields

New from PBE Games

Steep-sided hills dot this boulder-strewn plain, which is part of a desolate border between two kingdoms. The only travelers that frequent the Stony Fields are the smugglers and roving bandits based in Dimwood Refuge. Others crossing the Fields risks their lives. Aside from the bandits and smugglers, the plain and the many caves hidden beneath its rocky surface are home to dangerous creatures. Like all Hexed Places, this title details a classic six-mile overland hex in a system-neutral format that's easy to adapt to most OSR-style games. Contents include player and GM maps, introductory text, rumors, GM notes, location details, wandering monster encounters, and extras. You can read more about Hexed Places in the free Compendium.

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.
