Swordfish Islands has teamed up with the amazing Karl Stjernberg (@skullfungus) to bring you physical zine copies of his hellish little adventure: Down and out in Dredgeburg.


Welcome to Dredgeburg!

You have died and woken up in the city of Dredgeburg, a dark oasis of sorts, wedged in between the many hells of the Underworld. Dredgeburg is a massive city, located deep within the Underworld where it sits in the middle of a fetid swamp. It’s a strange and often dangerous place where anything can happen and where much adventure is to be had.

  • Character Sheet that you can print out
  • Six districts, each with their own flair and adventure hooks
  • Three classes; The Gore, The Dreg and The Witch
  • Over 20 hand drawn illustrations
  • A color cover that you can print out
  • Mission/Job/Adventure Generators
  • NPC Name/Quirk Tables
  • 20 pages in total
  • And a lot more!

    This is a great little self-contained game and setting. Lots of great adventure hooks and gaming ideas. It comes from a style of play where the the players are invited to help build the world by answering questions directed by the referee. I ref more like a demented god-king so--not really my style of play. This is the only reason that I don't give this product 5 stars.

    Got my physical copy today, and it's gorgeous! I'd get anything these guys printed though. I'd buy any doodles Skullfungus made of any quality. This is a high-quality printing!
