Cursed Scroll Zine, Vol. 2: Red Sands, Print + PDF (Shadowdark RPG)

This is for the physical print version of Cursed Scroll 2. You also get a free PDF download immediately.

Fearsome assassin-sorcerers lurk in a hidden desert monastery, towering sand dunes hide lost treasures, and pit fighters battle for glory beneath a scorching sun.

The second issue of Cursed Scroll Zine is here to add a harsh and wondrous desert setting to your TTRPG game world! Inside its 68 pages, you'll find: 

  • Fortress of the Burning Brothers, a 4th-6th-level adventure that pits the characters against two warring efreet in a grim, iron stronghold
  • The Djurum, a shimmering desert hex crawl rife with desert sorcerers, bandits, sandstorms, and lost treasures
  • Three new classes for Shadowdark RPG: desert rider, pit fighter, and ras-godai
  • Rules for pit fighting, riding mounts, poisons, and enduring wounds
  • 14 new monsters, including The Scourge, a mad dragon that haunts the desert wastelands! 
  • Classic, hand-drawn maps and player-safe JPEGs for virtual table tops

Cursed Scroll uses Shadowdark RPG rules, but it's easily compatible with any old-school fantasy roleplaying system.

love it!

The East Awaits

I have always been a fan of the eastern-Arabian nights feel. A touch of the east. Red Sands did not disappoint. The sampling classes and the light touch on lore gives building blocks and does not force feed. Even now at the writing of this, I am playing a Ras-Godai which is a touch of Ninja and Middle Eastern Assassin, with the Black Lotus playing an integral part like the Hashisans of old. I look forward to further expansions of lore especially in the Red Sands campaign.

Having both PDF and physical copy are useful to me as both player and DM, since I can snip out reference material at will. Please we need more Cursed Zines!

Minimal wording, maximum value

I'm a huge fan and love these zines.
