Classic Modules Today: H1 Bloodstone Pass (5e)


In 1985, TSR published the module named “Bloodstone” with the module code “H1”. It was written by Douglas Niles and Michael Dobson, and was primarily designed to highlight the recently released Battlesystem, which provided rules for mass combat in the form of miniature wargaming.  H1 consisted of a 32-page story, with several pages of maps for battle encounters, and 24 pages of army rosters and stats.  In addition to the above, the module also included printed cardstock with fold-up instructions to build Bloodstone village in 3D, and over 100 tokens to represent army units.

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 "H1 Bloodstone Pass", originally available in hard copy and now for sale in digital format at

"Classic Modules Today: B4 The Lost City" contains the OpenOffice/LibreOffice source files used to create the PDF. Visit for instructions on creating your own classic module conversions and selling them on the DMs Guild.

11/19 Product update: the file has been updated to clarify the conversion methodology, and I have included additional options for using the unofficial, in-progress mass combat rules released through UA, if DMs wish to do so.

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.
