The House of the Midnight Violet


*This is the PDF version of the advetnure.  Click HERE for the Fantasy Grounds VTT version!*

"A well-written adventure through a mansion filled with dark secrets."

The House of the Midnight Violet is a 3+ hour standalone adventure designed for 5th Edition.  The print version of the adventure is intended for four to five characters of level 4 to 6, and includes scaling suggestions up to level 12.  It is set in a non-specific location and can be included in nearly every campaign.

The party is recruited by an innkeeper to recover a flower from a nearby mansion.  He is an alchemist and he is running short on his supply of the Midnight Violet.

Town rumors warn the party to stay away.  But, that's unlikely given that your heros are mighty and brave. 

While exploring the mansion, the adventurers will learn the story of the family that once lived there and what caused their demise.  That is...if they live that long. 

Two new creatures and one new magic item are introduced in this adventure.

Please take a look at my other adventures!

I found this adventure to be very well-written, easy to run and easy to play.

Of all the adventures I've used from DMsGuild, this one played the most like official content. Really good stuff.

Just ran this with a group of mostly first time players using pregen level 5 characters and they loved it. We made it through the adventure in 4ish hours and had a lot of fun. Thank you for this great adventure, I'll be working this in with my regular group soon and taking a look at your other adventures.

Just got done playing this and had a blast! It is well written and a solid mix of RP and fighting.

Quick question for you, do you have a storyline or adventure continuing on with Elloise? Would love to know what happened to her or see that storyline continue.

Fantastic! I'm very happy to hear that you and the players enjoyed the adventure. I had a lot of fun writing it and running it.

I was speaking with another Guild writer about this today. My intention is to continue the story of Elloise. Hopefully a new adventure featuring her will be out this year. If you'd like, contact me and I'll share my ideas with you. My email, Twitter and Facebook information is located at the end of the module.

My group and I had a lot of fun running House of the Midnight Violet. It was a good story, with a good combination of story and combat.
I'm looking forward to more modules.

This was great. I made some minor changes to tailor it to my group; but my one more universal suggestion: Have Mr. TimTom appear in the form of a clown. It really worked.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
