Mines of Madness (Next)

The wizard Abracadamus hid the Forever Stone in the darkest depths of a failing mine, coerced monsters into serving as guardians, and rigged the dungeon with traps galore.

Then he died, as all good wizards do.

Many heroes have fallen prey to the Forever Stone's lure of immortality. To date, only one stalwart band has plunged into the Mines of Madness and lived to tell the tale. You think you’re better than them? You think you got what it takes to grab life by the stones and conquer the dungeon that won the 2012 Gygaxian Award* for Bonecrushing Awesomeness?

We seriously doubt it, but go ahead . . . prove us wrong!

Mines of Madness is a Very Special D&D® Next Adventure written for PAX East 2013 and designed for four 3rd-level characters.

My group and I had fun with this adventure. The players had fun, I had fun. It was easily adaptable into our homebrew universe.
Great time had by all at the table . . . :)

What level should a 3 player group be to take part in this adventure?

The adventure says it was designed to four 3rd level characters, but I would not run it with characters lower than level 5. A great deal of the encounters are CR 3 or lower, but some encounters are greatly unbalanced: there are a CR 14, a CR 10 and a CR 7 encounters on this adventure (this CR is from the play test rules, I did not converted them yet to the final 5th ed rules, but they will be very close).
So if your party is lacking a fourth member, I would advise you to run it for level six characters; the lower CR encounters will be easy, but others will be very challenging.

I am converting this adventure to use it in Fantasy Grounds. Can I post the file here, after done? Will it constitute IP infringement? I am NOT aiming to make money with the conversion; I just want to share it and will set it’s price as “free”, just like the adventure.

The only things I am altering are some creature stats, using the standard stats of 5th ed. When applicable (for example, dwarven skeletons are becoming skeletons from DMG), because the former creatures (with play test stats) were too weak for a 3rd level group.

I didn’t found a guideline ruling this situation, and this is why I am asking this here.

PS: SOME of the creatures/encounters were too weak for 3rd level party. Others are WAY too hard =P

I played this game as a DM on my birthday and it has some real epic moments! Tip: Print out some pre-generated character sheets... You're going to need them (but don't let your players know).

How long does this adventure take to complete? I'm thinking about running it as a one-shot.

It took our group of 5 level 10 players (I scaled up some encounters and removed some of the minor ones) two sessions. A total of about 6-7 hours of gameplay. They didn't dawdle much and solved most of the traps and puzzles fairly quickly. We had 3 fairly long combat encounters. So I would plan for 2 sessions for this adventure.

Just curious, is this for 4th edition or 5th edition. The link to the DNDnext page where character generation rules were no longer exists.

D&D Next is an abbreviated title for 5th edition, so this would be 5th edition. You will find some titles that are labeled "Next" that will state they are for both the 4th and 5th edition.

More completely, "D&D Next" was the name of the playtest program to develop 5th Edition, so adventures published as part of it were designed using an earlier, partial version of the 5e rules, which were available on line. Those playtest packets were taken down as newer versions were drafted, ultimately culminating in the 5e Basic Rules PDF. So there may be some things that need tweaking, but for the most part it should work with the 5e rules as published.

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.
