Hark! 1: The Neverending Stairs of Umbar is a first entry in a series of short, printable, randomly generated, replayable, solo fantasy adventures.

Each Hark! will be a minigame of it’s own, with a unique setting, unique, simple rules and unique gameplay consisting of a series of randomly generated encounters. Full single player immersion, with virtually no prep and no crunch.

  1. print the entire file as two-sided on 2 horizontal sheets of A3 paper (you can use A4 or Letter format if you prefer smaller package)
  2. fold along the grey lines and cut along the red
  3. prepare a d4, d6, d8 & d10 dice, a clean sheet of paper to record your character’s state and possessions (or use counters or d20 and d10 dice)
  4. start with the two-sided rules bookmark marked with numbers 1 & 2, then follow the instructions – you are already playing!
  5. play until you win or die
  6. repeat

Single playthrough can take anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on your luck, so it’s perfect for scratching the itch for an old school adventure, while you have no one else to play.

While no two playthrough will ever be identical, the replayability value wanes after 4-7 playthroughs. Then all you need is to wait for the next entry in the Hark! series.

I wish you good rolls. Say hi to the Pale Lady from me, if you ever meet her.
