PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

Graveyard of Heroes is a pen and paper tabletop fantasy role-playing game in the dark/weird fantasy sub-genre. As part of the second wave of the OSR (Old School Renaissance) movement it takes classic role-playing and moves it in new directions. Inside you will find: new monsters, new spells, new magic items, new ways to make characters and a new attitude. Despite all the changes, the spirit of classic fantasy role-playing is preserved. Experience all the dungeon delving fun in a brand new way.


  • This game uses a classless character creation system so that players may personalize their heroes in the manner of their choosing.
  • A race creation system is included with the game so that game masters can design the playable races that will be allowed in his/her campaign.
  • 8 sample non-standard fantasy races are included in the book.
  • Character advancement is quest based and is not linked to the number of monsters killed or amount of wealth acquired. This helps prevent parties from degenerating into murder hobos and encourages players to get involved in the story.
  • The book has lots of monsters mostly of the pulp, weird or dark fantasy variety. In addition random monster generators are included in the book to aid in the creation of fresh new monsters to throw players off.
  • A sample adventure is included in the book.

All heroes die. What legacy will you leave behind? In a vast world where the actions of heroes are often overshadowed by the unknowable forces of the universe what impact can a mere mortal have on the world? Will you be forgotten like all the others in the graveyard of heroes or will your name be made immortal?

I do enjoy Graveyard of Heroes but I have a request: is there any way to get rid of the pseudo vancian system of magic for a new alternative one ? Like a mana one with corruption for example. Also where can I find a place with optional or alternatives rules? Either way, excellent work !

At present I am not aware of any fan groups experimenting with the rules of this game. Which just means you should start one if you are so inclined. A GoH supplement book with optional rules and extra stuff could be possible in the future but right now other projects are in the works and are taking precedence.

Uhhh.....Page 3, it appears your trait values for creation rolls are reversed--shouldn't the trait values go up as the creation values get higher?

The creation roll table is correct.

The text in the preview is crowded together. Any chance of that being fixed in the main product?

Try the full size preview instead of the quick preview.

That's what I was looking at. Quick preview is too small on my machine to see that sort of thing.

Have you tried using the download option and viewing the preview PDF in a standalone viewer? The PDF preview in Chrome has been weird on some PDFs for me, and that almost always clears up the issue.

Ah yes. That seems to do it. Thanks. :)

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.
