DDEX2-06 Breath of the Yellow Rose (5e)


Breath of the Yellow Rose

The monks of the Monastery of the Yellow Rose have long cloistered themselves in their home atop the Earthspur Mountains, practicing their strange lifestyle which is rumored to give them longevity. Now, their dietary restrictions and practices of breath control have become the fashion amongst the well-to-do of Mulmaster. But when a few of these lay practitioners start dropping dead from suffocation and starvation, others start to question the validity of the monks’ claims.

Is this simply a deadly ignorance, or is there a fell wind blowing through the rich and powerful of Mulmaster?

A four hour adventure for 1st-4th level characters.

My recommendation if you have a hard stop at 4 hours (e.g. online game or convention) is to change the player hook at the beginning to already be in the employ of the Phlan NPCs. Additionally, don't be afraid to railroad the players in the investigation section. After they visit any 3 locations looking for clues, that should be enough to point them towards the final fight.

Really fun module to DM. It took way more than 4 hours to run though.

This is a pretty good module, with really interesting characters. A lot of information and backstory is given for the characters that the players interact with, which I found made the module very engaging.

However in Part 4 there a various methods of entering the Chapter House suggested, but from then on the module seems to assume the players will descend into combat to get through the Chapter House and doesn't provide much dialog for npcs that the players may want to talk to if they try to infiltrate the Chapter House posing as potential students. This came off as quite a jarring shift from the investigatory parts of the module.

I also found it difficult to run the game in 4 hours.

A pretty nice module and apparently one that I know a few people were looking to move into. I really had a really fun time with this one. It opens with a party and things go from there right into an investigation. It offers quite a bit for character backgrounds which was surprising. There's something of a dungeon but admittedly I didn't get to see too much in that. I'd recommend it.

A really good module although I only had 3 hours at my game store so we didn't get into the dungeon. One thing I did that worked well was type up the information that can be learned at the party then print, cut & paste (with scissors, not mouse) to playing cards. I had them in 3 stacks and when players rolled their interaction checks they drew off the top of the deck the appropriate number of times. Like I said, it worked well.

The text above says this is an adventure for 5th-10th level adventurers, but the introduction in the module says 3-7 1st - 4th level characters.

Yes, there appears to have been an entry error when OBS uploaded the adventure. WOTC has notified them and asked for that to be edited.

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.
