Dark Sorceries - A 5E Solo Adventure

Watermarked PDF

All conversation abruptly stops as the door to the inn crashes open. A cloaked figure staggers into the room, falling to his knees. The stranger looks human, though his cowl is pulled low, hiding his features from sight. His clothes are covered in frost and fresh snow.

“P-please… h-help… m-me...,” a strangled voice pleads from under the hood. Pain and desperation are evident in the man’s voice.

What do you do?

If you are looking for a thrilling adventure set in the Forgotten Realms, look no further! Dark Sorceries is a 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Solo Adventure, inspired by Paul Bimler’s “The Death Knight’s Squire” and is the first chapter in the Heroes of Faerun: Shadowborne campaign (a series of custom adventures designed for solo play). This adventure takes 2-4 hours to play, and is designed to take a 2nd-level character all the way to 3rd-level. While this adventure is designed for solo play, it can be easily tailored to work with any gaming group.

Dark Sorceries reads like a “choose your own adventure” book, where choices are presented to the player, and the player chooses a response from among those choices to progress through the story.

The adventure is written with a gripping and dramatic narrative, combining a multitude of different responses that will impact NPC attitudes and outcomes in the story. You will fight monsters, you will create allies, and you will come face to face with creatures birthed from dark sorcery.

You will need the 5E Basic Rules (PHB and DMG recommended) in order to play, a printer or a virtual tabletop for displaying the hand-drawn maps, and tokens or minis to help keep track of the tactical combat encounters.

So grab some snacks, put on your favorite adventuring music, and dive in! Adventurers needed, Dungeon Masters not required!

I am new to solo adventuring and I found this to be quite enjoyable. The story is thoughtful and well-written with a good balance between roleplaying and combat. It was a bit challenging at first to get the hang of controlling both my character and ene [...]

I recommend this product if you like solo adventures. I give it a good rating in part for that reason; we need more of these on the market! This genre is in its infancy, and the more examples out there, the better content creators can do on similar pro [...]

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.
