Dark Pyramid of Sorcerer’s Isle

Long unoccupied, the pyramid on Sorcerer’s Isle now flows with strange magical energy, warping creatures and the landscape around it. The Cult of the Dragon and Red Wizards of Thay have taken notice, and it’s up to you to keep whatever power dwells there out of their hands.

An eight hour adventure for 5th-10th level characters.

DDEX1-11 5E

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.

I purchased 5 adventures from D&D Adventure league earlier this evening but after paying I was offered downloads or PDFs. I wanted hard copy but when I moved away from the download page, my computer threw a wobbly and now I don't seem to be able to get my purchases at all. Is there any way I can get them hard copy or, if not, can I have a refund?

These don't come as hardcopies. It quite clearly says "Watermarked PDFs" next to the purchase price.

Not a review, because I haven't run this one yet, but I'm a little confused and not greatly impressed on a first readthrough.

The entire Maze level is baffling. It's literally unmappable, but the module includes a map? There are no meaningful decisions for players to make, and no way to proactively solve the maze - they just run into a series of fairly bland combats until the DM decides they've taken enough punishment and allows them to proceed?

Plus it obviously doesn't line up well with the rest of the season; the opening makes acknowledgements to the events of DDEX1-10, but it feels like *leaving* Phlan to investigate events upriver that have little do with the main plot should not be high on their agenda, and the relative ease of leaving and returning to Phlan here make something of a mockery of both the conclusion of DDEX1-10 and the entirety of DDEX1-14.

I'm probably running this in about two weeks, and I'm just wondering if I've missed something before I start...See more

I'm not even going to download the free version to give it a review, but yours is a very thorough review.
Anecdotally, this is the adventure I encountered the most complaints about over the whole of AL and specifically for Season 1.
Personally, the only character I ever played through it wound up gaining a level & learning disintegrate for the sole purpose of destroying the pyramid completely out of spite for how awful the adventure was.

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.
