Alortun: The Crown of Skulls, v2

ZIP File

Updated from 4 pages to 12!

The Crown of Skulls is an ancient artefact with its origins and history lost in the sands of times. The crown can grant great powers to its wearers, but these powers come at a terrible price.


Crammed inside this 10(+2) page product there is:


  • A detailed history from human, dwarven and elven points of view,

  • Human, dwarven, and elven rumours (both true and false along with recommended knowledge DC scores),

  • A description of the crown,

  • Effects of the crown,

  • Four (historic) crown examples,

  • Four human and two dwarven hooks to start a campaign from,

  • A new elven organization, The Sacred Hunters of the Cursed Crown,

  • And seven campaign hooks for The Sacred Hunters of the Cursed Crown.

  • The two extra pages are the title page and the OGL.


This product is the first in the Alortun series and is designed to be inserted into any campaign, or game world, with a little alteration; the artefact can be used alongside other Alortun products as part of the Alortun setting.

The product description more or less sums it up. I would only add that the game mechanics include the Knowledge checks for its various contradictory legends (with an extended method of telling true from false rumours) and the artifact's powers themselv [...]

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.
