"A masterpiece"

"Just ran this last night and it was brilliant"

"I can't wait to run this... loved your adventures so far"

"Five stars"

"Great easy to read, easy to run adventure"

Travellers are going missing on the Long Road, on the 100 mile stretch between Triboar and Longsaddle. Our heroes investigate and discover a haunted mansion with a dark history and a gruesome secret. Their quest brings them to the very gates of hell itself, where an infernal abomination presents them with their greatest challenge yet...

This is a 4-6 hour adventure for 3rd-4th level characters. Inspired by a Clark Ashton Smith story.

Does this adventure easily scale up in difficulty for a party of 5th/6th level?

Hi Matt, that's quite a big jump. Doubling the number of creatures in each encounter will (very roughly) achieve what you want.

Howdy M.T. B,

I just read through this and noted a few minor problems. Both the Butcher and Offspring are large sized creatures, yet the Hallway in the basement is only 5ft.

The Manor seems a bit small to me, possibly opening it up a bit and adding more to the second floor would help give it a more 'ominous' feel. Also I feel the vibe of this module needs a few secret doors :) If I get a chance I might draw up my own maps for this, if I do I will try and share them with you :)

Overall I like the feel of the whole adventure, the portal to the abyss is quite a nice touch as well!

I really liked the adventure, but the challenge with the warlock is near impossible for 3 level characters. By casting the fileball into his study he caused an instant TPK. The fireball in particular can melt any 3th level carachter.

Hi Alessandro, I'm sorry to hear about your TPK! There are several ways for the party to defeat the sorcerer. If you watch this livestream near the end, you will see how at least one party did it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHXuwDDqZVo.

But if they all get caught in the fireball and all fail their saves, and the damage roll is high, they will be in trouble. Personally I probably would have had the party wake up naked and on 1 hitpoint in the Pen downstairs the next morning, and play it forward from there. But I am a gentle DM!

Ran this last night with my group. Started off with the Barbarian running off towards the light leaving the sorc and rogue behind in the fog to get attacked. They then proceeded to walk to the front door, not pick the lock and try find another way in. Got inside and to the kitchen and were attacked by Magnus who crit the barb leaving him at 1 hp. Gurny then ran out from his room and apologized for not hearing them knock (They didnt even think to do that). Many laughs were had.

Loved it and shall look into more adventures when I want to do a 1 shot between sessions!

[SPOILERS]

Here the first part of a live play stream of this adventure - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHXuwDDqZVo. The DM did some interesting things, and I very much enjoyed it. I hope they do a part 2 soon.

Best part yet! A masterpiece. I'll have to think of a few increasingly discouraging ways for location 20 though! I might end location 20 (if my PCs persist) with a method of ending in location 18.

Regarding location #20 - you could put a gate on it if your party is overly curious...

Who are the Artists? ;)

Hi Patrick - the cover came from shutterstock, so I'm not sure who the artist is. The interior art came from a couple of spot art collections I bought on RPG now. I can look up the exact titles if you wish. It's all good stuff!

I was just noticing some of my art in there. (From my dmg art sets: Art for Your Adventures). When you put the artist names in the artist section, it allows people to click on the name to see their other work and leads to getting more recognition as an artist. All of my artwork is listed as Patrick E. Pullen for instance. :)

Format
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.
