Watermarked PDF
$1.95

Yonder lies the Shrine of Lucien Harpell, greatest mage of this or any other age. In the arts of golemancy, artificery and necromancy, his equal has never been known, nor will be again.

Cursed are those who enter this tomb. Cursed are those who look upon this statue. Cursed are those who seek his riches. Know that your demise is certain – your lives will be short, and your deaths slow.

Read this, fools, and despair!

The Shrine of Lucien Harpell is the stuff of legends - full of hideous traps and strange monsters, but guarding fabulous treasures. It was lost for generations beneath the grim and lonely Starmetal Hills, but has now been found again. Will any dare enter?

Little Shrine of Horrors is a 6-8 hour adventure for characters of 4th-5th level. It contains over 20 encounters and is full of puzzles, tricks, traps, roleplaying and combat. Do your players have what it takes to outwit Lucien Harpell?

Now featuring a new map by Daniel F. Walthall!

I did not notice until I ran this, for the Hall of Gods, the Umberlee symbol is different on the player handout to the key.

What was the thinking behind not using as much boxed description text in this adventure, and indeed a few of your other ones? I vastly prefer the ones that have it for ease of use, although I know this is very divisive issue. I am currently going through my printed copy and putting square brackets around the safe text.

Hi Phil, yes it is a divisive issue. Some folk love boxed text, while others despise it! I've tried a mixture of it in my adventures, to try and assess if there's a clear preference amongst my customers. I'll be honest - I still haven't decided one way or the other.

Any advice on how to keep the secrets of the dungeon hidden? I have a huge grid that I can draw on and the players can place their miniatures on it too, and the only thing I can think of is drawing the dungeon one room at a time as they are revealed, which seems a little tedious.

Hi Jeff, the dry erase battlemaps you can get from Chessex etc are probably the easiest way to do this. For the rooms that have special symbols on the floor, you could print out the images from the appendix to scale, and just place them down on the battlemap when the party enter.

The other possibility would be to print out the dungeon map to scale on multiple pieces of paper. Then bring out the relevant papers as they progress and secure them to your surface

I am getting set to run this, and I am going to use 4th edition dungeon tiles. I have had to scan and edit some to create some of the shapes and corridors I will need, but I think it should work.

Loved it! Wrote a review for it too. Do you have any module that can be played right after it? My players are now at level 5 and we'd love to keep it going. :)

So glad you enjoyed it! Both Expedition to the Lost Crags and Magic Village for sale are about the right level for your party and both are based out of Longsaddle.

Although this module was clearly inspired by "Tomb of Horrors", most of the traps and puzzles are different. I've put a couple of easter eggs from the classic adventure in there by way of tribute, but have switched them around a little to keep things interesting... ;-)

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.
