Veil Down Conquered (Free Preview Edition): A Ruined Village Adventure for Levels 2-4

Watermarked PDF

An adventure site for three to five characters of levels 2-4.

Veil Down Conquered is a free preview of the full-length adventure KOBOLDS VS. OGRES, coming in Fall 2017!

Veil Down is an affluent halfling village known for its vintners and farmers. Recent kobold incursions into the region around Veil Down have forced gangs of monsters closer and closer to civilized land...and this has brought a gang of ogres to the idyllic village!

After driving the halflings out, the ogres have attempted to make the best of their situation and turn the village into their new home, but in a village built for halflings, these ogres are going to have a hard time fitting in...

This adventure site contains a chapter from the forthcoming adventure Kobolds vs. Ogres, coming in late 2018. Fully presented as a standalone site, expanded gameplay content includes a much more in-depth look at the gnome town of Hardbuckler, briefly touched in Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast and Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide. Additionally, extensive random encounter tables round out the book, steeped in historical lore from the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, presenting stunning mysteries, interesting sites to explore, and evocative NPCs and monsters.

This 20+ page adventure includes:

  • An encounter map for Veil Down village and regional Sword Coast hex map by Elven Tower.
  • A dozen named NPCs and monsters including survivors and potential allies for the players to encounter.
  • Eight detailed encounter areas with tactics, interaction details, treaure, and secrets galore!
  • The gnome village of Hardbuckler detailed with a dozen NPCs and notes on the renowned magical vaults and the magic that protects them.
  • Tables to quickly create new NPCs and even small villages in the region around Hardbuckler.
  • Massively detailed wilderness encounter tables for the Trielta Hills that take into account regional power players such as Elturgard and the serpentfolk-controlled Kingdom of Najara.
  • Evocative setting details gleaned from the Forgotten Realms' storied past to create interesting sites, hazards, interaction, and combat encounters.

This chapter only begins the trials and tribulations players will face in Kobolds vs. Ogres!

Don't hesitate to provide playtesting feedback and we'll do our best to incorporate it into the final version of Kobolds vs. Ogres. Use the discussion comments below or contact us through

If you purchased this before 7/10/2017, check the updated version in your library, because we just added a map of Hardbuckler courtesy of Elven Tower Cartography!

Product Information

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.
