from the back of the book:
A free Veins of the Earth inspired hexcrawl for OSR systems. This hexcrawl takes the tools provided in Veins of the Earth, unpacks dense ideas into an easily digestible form, adds in new material, and provides a framework for adventures in the deep and lightless world. Introduce chaos to a world of starvation and stalemate. Carve an empire from the flesh of your enemies. Plot, betray, wander, starve, die, and rise again.
Written by Skerples, with art by Lungfungus. and edited by David Shugars. This hastily assembled and possibly incomplete document includes:
•162 hexes and a map.
•Rules for navigating underground.
•Ten fully detailed factions plus additional oddities and treasures.
•Elaborate random encounter tables.
•Many other tables, useful tools, and tips for running games in the Veins.
•The seeds of empires.
from the designer's blog post:
Veins of the Earth is an amazing book.
I've attempted to unpack some of the astonishingly dense content into a more digestible and immediately accessible form. I've written a hexcrawl incorporating as much Veins content as I could manage, plus a few more factions, races, and encounters.
