Ruins of Hisari

Ruins of Hisari

Multiple File Formats

Hidden in the jungles below the fuming volcano of the Sky Lizard Mountains lie the ruins of Hisari, Chult's once mighty yuan-ti city, forgotten, abandoned and swallowed by the earth, surrounded by a magical ward that terrorizes all yuan-ti that dare return. SOMETHING happened. But no ones knows what. Explore the underground temple and be the first to unbury its secrets... if you survive to tell the tale.

"Ruins of Hisari" is an adventure for characters levels 11-16 and can be played as an expansion to Tomb of Annihilation or as a standalone adventure.

Is it just me, or do the preview links not work?
The Quick Preview gives me a blank preview window, while the full-size opens another dmsguild pop-up with "page not found" and a suggestion to search the site for the title "waiting for previous preview regen".

Hey, thanks for pointing that out! I guess because I've included the image files for the maps in this download... it messed up the preview function that only works with PDF files. I've turned the preview off, so other folks don't get confused. Sorry about that!

People like a glimpse of what they're buying so I recommend turning the previews back on. The trick is that the preview function attempts to preview the first file you upload. Delete, re-up, starting with the .pdf and it should work.

I can't honestly review this yet, since I have not read much of it. But I will say that it ias the most visually pleasing maps. Compared to the obvious computer drawn or lackluster maps I have seen in other Cult based adventures, the pencil maps style is both visually clear and elegant.

I also like the other artwork, and the theme, as well as the descriptions of the actions and motives of the NPCs.

My only regret is that I might not be able to run this adventure for about a year, since we will be starting at 1st level and don't meet up as often as I would like. But that was my choice. I hope to see some work like this for lower level PCs.

Your comment - especially about the maps - makes my heart soar. My cartographer Jess is a dear D&D buddy of mine, and we were so deliberate about the style for the maps that it is great to hear it was appreciated. I will be sure to share your words with her.

I hope you'll come back to let us know how it goes if you do eventually run this adventure. I'll keep lower level adventures in mind for next time!

In the symbols puzzle, what is the difference between the symbol directly under the unmarked statue and the one directly across the room from it.

Those sneaky sneks matched themselves during one of our revisions! An updated PDF with a corrected puzzle (with only one solution) is now up. Thanks a bunch for catching that and letting me know.

Glad I wasn't just seeing things. This adventure is a nice addition to the area.

Adding to my review, you usually don't get lots of good adventures aimed at high-level characters.

I personally would love to play my high-level characters more, so that was a goal of mine. Thanks for noticing! :)

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.
