The Darkness Beneath Dalentown is an OSR adventure for characters of levels 8-12 featuring hordes of oozes, undead, and demons festering for years in an ancient dwarven mining stronghold. Now, they are slowly working their way to the surface, and the folk of Dalentown are in dire peril!

  • A fully realized town setting, Dalentown, complete with maps, NPCs, factions, and adventure hooks.
  • Four levels of adventure in an ancient dwarvenhold, brought to stunning life by Elven Tower Cartography.
  • Full color and black & white artwork by Dean Spencer, Patrick E. Pullen, Jeff Preston, and Rick Hersehy.
  • A table of events that could see Dalentown transformed or ruined if the adventurers don't act quickly to defeat the subterranean threat.
  • All the monster stat blocks you need to run the adventure.
  • All maps in multiple formats, optimized for printing and Virtual Table Top play.
