In 1982, TSR published the module named “Against the Cult of the Reptile God” with the module code “N1”. It was written by Douglas Niles and published as a 28-page booklet. The module provides a town as a home base for adventure as had been previously seen in a number of other modules but for the first time introduces a threat within the town itself. In addition it provides a challenging underground adventure and a number of plot suggestions for further adventures in the area should the player characters prove successful.

This conversion guide allows DMs to run the original module with 5th Edition rules and provides a reference sheet for encounters.

To use this conversion guide, you will need a copy of "N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God" originally available in hardcopy and now for sale in digital format at DMSGuild.com

This comment is in response to the review by Preston H, since even the creator of a product can only leave a review after purchasing (and I'm not going to purchase my own conversion) I'm responding here.

Hi Preston, and thanks for the thoughtful and very useful review. It's always nice to see someone elses opinion of something one has written.
Regarding your concerns over Explictica Defilus, I must admit I felt the same while doing the conversion. The naga in the 5th edition monster manual is, I believe, much too powerful for a module of this level, and so I was left with the task of bringing her down to a more appropriate level without much information in the original module, which gives a very basic stat block and description. In the original she had only 40 HP (which I found surprisingly low) and so I adjusted that upward to produce a challenge rating I thought would be closer to the mark. I also have no idea what the Nagas' stats are like in the monster manual of the time, since I don't...See more

Oh wow, I wasn't expecting to hear from the product creator! I'm glad to hear you found the review useful; as I said, I find the conversion to be really solid and valuable, and I plan to make use of it next time I run the module.

If you do update the conversion and Explicitica's stat block, I'd definitely be excited to check out the new version, so I can't wait to see! Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and the process behind developing this conversion of the reptile god; it was really neat to read about. I'll keep an eye out for X6 Quagmire and try to remember to check it out.

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.
