Dungeon #163 (4e)

Watermarked PDF

House of Pain By Jennifer Clarke Wilkes: Someone or something has been grabbing eladrin from the Feywild. As the heroes pursue another quest, they have the opportunity to discover the force behind the abductions, which might lead them to more conflicts than they anticipate. This Side Trek introduces the Shadowfell and shadarkai to your player characters, if they haven’t been exposed to either before now. A Side Trek for 9th-level PCs.

Beyond the Mottled Tower By Creighton Broadhurst, Bruce R. Cordell, and David Noonan: The Scales of War Adventure Path continues in issue #163! Now that the heroes have reached the paragon tier, they’ve earned the deserving accolades of the citizens of Overlook. But a summons from an unexpected ally sends the PCs on a cross-planar adventure to pursue a villain who has plagued them—and all of Elsir Vale—for some time. From the mortal realm to the Shadowfell to the Elemental Chaos, the chase is on to catch Sarshan! An adventure for 11th-level PCs.

Brink of Madness By Robert J. Schwalb: The Madness trilogy concludes with “Brink of Madness.” The heroes must set off to stop an insane cultist from tearing open a hole in reality to a world of unimaginable horror. Failure means that the entire region becomes saturated with mutating energy and creatures capable of shattering the strongest minds. Only the heroes of Wellspring can put a stop to the tortured and twisted Malachi. An adventure for 13th-level PCs.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

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.
