The Dark Spiral

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$9.99

A mundane-seeming crime masks a sinister plot—and sends characters racing across a dozen realities in a bid to save the Earth!

Spiral dust is an incredible high. Wonderful. Transcendent. Orgasmic. That’s what users claim, eyes wide to reveal blue fractals instead of irises. Spiral dust addiction is on the rise. But why? Who is the Dustman who deals this strange substance from the shadows? And why do heavy spiral dust users tend to disappear without a trace?

The Dark Spiral is a multi-part adventure for The Strange. Player characters are tasked by the Estate, a secretive organization pledged to protect the Earth, to shut down a local dealer of spiral dust. Their mission takes them farther than they expected when the trail leads to alternate, limited worlds called recursions where the rules of reality are different.


Game masters can intermix secondary Estate missions (in any order) with the main story arc of the adventure to create a mini-campaign. The Dark Spiral introduces players to the wonders of translating between alternate worlds of The Strange and showcases the narrative structure of the game. And it includes six pages of awesome “show ‘em” illustrations to pull the players right into the action!

In addition to introducing new recursions not covered in The Strange corebook, The Dark Spiral offers new creatures, characters, and items to add to any campaign.

An interesting introduction to The Strange universe. Enough diverse challenges to suit most groups and play-styles. Offers up travel to enough different Recursions without overwhelming the players. The antagonists and other NPCs are intriguing and [...]

An incredible piece of work. Really showcases the world hopping nature of The Strange as a game and injects personality in to every single encounter. Also very easy to adapt in to an ongoing campaign. A must have if you own The Strange corebook! [...]

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.
