The Evil of Castle Cardinal


The King’s Forest. Ever since the end of the Goblin War the place has been host to countless orcs, disrupting the flow of trade between Suzail and Arabel. That changed when adventurers claimed an abandoned keep within the forest and ensured safe passage for travelers skirting the woods. When rumors that the keep stands abandoned once more, a call for adventurers was sent, and you answered...

This 4-hour adventure for 4th-5th level characters was written by Simon Goudreault (@Wandering_DM) as a one-shot scenario for the 2015 Montreal Geekfest. Enjoy!

2016/01/17 - Initial release

2016/01/17 - Update 1: fixed typos, clarified Harvest chamber puzzle, and added missing info to Primordial Temple

2016/01/19 - Update 2: Clarified wehere the runestones are kept, and added a section in Navigating the dungeon.

Thanks for all the feedback!

It is mainly clearing away typos. I was re-reading it the other day and spotted a few. :)
That and clearing some sections of the text I didn't like. Nothing that alters the adventure in any way.

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.
