Secrets of Sokol Keep

Decades have passed since Sokol Keep was reclaimed, and a small garrison placed there along with a beacon to help guide ships. Now, that beacon has gone dark, and the garrison has disappeared. In Phlan, rumors circulate that something ancient was discovered in the grounds beneath the keep, dating to before the clerics of Tyr built the small fortress. Uncover the secrets of Sokol Keep!

An adventure for the 1st-4th level characters.

This adventure is great for players who enjoy the murder/mystery side of D&D. Its a good start for anyone who is looking to transition from a little homebrew and step into Adventurers League Play. I've GM'd and played in this adventure, and being on either side of the screen is fun. If you want a good balance starting with combat, then some RP with a few story twists then back to combat, this is the start you need for your players.

The perks to this modules include:
- Learning the history of local landmarks around Phlan
- History of the Sokol family, and what the lighthouse represents
- Understanding of who-does-what around Phlan

No tavern map of the Laughing Goblin included! :(

Second module I played through. It is great.

Introduction: Smooth with adequate roleplaying opportunities.

Exploration: Interesting and tense. Some very interesting crossover into later modules. Player choices really matter and some decisions can make for very different playthroughs.

Combat: Great introduction. We had a new player at the table that was able to pick things up.

Actual Diplomacy: It isn't often that PCs are able to talk opposition out of a fight (especially when [redacted - "bad stuff is imminent anyway"])

Overall: I would like to play through this module again with a new character and a new group to see how different things go. This is a top tier module.

-- New PC friendliness (1st and 2nd level): 5/5.
-- Story: 5/5.
-- Pacing: 5/5.
-- Combat Difficulty: 3.5/5. Some tier 1 modules can be extremely rough for new PCs (e.g. enemies that deal 10 damage with 1 attack). This...See more

Best introduction to D&D out there.

Starts with some straightforward roleplaying, transitions into an exploration phase with a dead-simple puzzle, then a short series of progressively less-easy combats against creatures whom no one would feel any compunction in destroying. Finally a short encounter with actual people that can be resolved either diplomatically or violently, depending on the player characters' investigative and social skills.

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.
