FREE PDF: Underworld Lore #1

UNDERWORLD LORE is a new zine chock full of OSR community-generated content for your fantasy campaign! For the premiere issue we've got a bangin' table of magical gems found in the eye-sockets of select animated skeletons, a whole mess of crazy mushrooms ripe for foraging in the deep dark below, a never-before-seen PETTY GOD & more besides. Click on the cover to download the RAR archive containing the PDF as well as exterior and interior cover files (in TIF format). I expressly designed this thing with printing in mind, but it looks rather swank on the screen too.

  2. Enjoy!

    Now that I've printed it up, I'm thinking I'll reduce the vertical margins in #2 to create space for more content.

  6. Hey Gorgonmilk,

    Quick question. I love your cover designs. I also notice you format them for half-letter, which is awesome (it's my favorite format.) but your actual zine is formatted for Letter. (I had the same problems with your Vancian and Lovecraft collections). Why don't you format it for 5.5x8.5?

    1. You can unpack the archive with a free program called WinRAR:

      http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-32-bit/3000-2250_4-10007677.html

      It's similar to ZIP archive format, but less annoying.

  9. My copy seems to be missing parts 3-15 of the OGL.

  12. Underworld Lore #1 -- booklet-ized-ish:

    But somebody that's better with pdfs than I am should grab it, optimize the hell out of it, and host it somewhere, 'cause I'm not leaving it up forever... But i do enjoy having in in half-page zine form.

    1. Nicely done. I will add it to the file list on the sidebar. I printed mine out as a booklet using the booklet printing settings on Adobe Acrobat. I left a ton of whitespace in #1, but I think I've optimized things in #2.
