Palace of the Crowned Skull

Suggested Price $5.00

A 12-hour adventure with four original maps. For 4-6 characters of 3rd-6th level.

A ruined keep overlooks a murky lake in the monster-infested wilderness of the High Moor. Here a daring young merchant prince attempted to carve out a kingdom for himself almost a century ago. It was a doomed endeavor from the start. Practically the moment he laid the final stone, his holdfast and subjects alike were overrun by monsters, never to be heard from again. Since then the ruin has stood untouched. Now the player characters return to this ill-fated hall in search of wealth, knowledge, and the mortal remains or its first and only king.

Great adventure! I played it with my two oldest boys, who played a barbarian and a wizard, both 5th level. It was great fun and the right amount of a challenge. The book is well formatted and easy to use for the DM, and the whole premise is hilarious. Looking forward to playing The Tournament at Scornubel, which will fit perfectly right after this.

I wish I could preview a couple of pages. It sounds kind of interesting, but would like to take a peek at it before buying.

A reasonable request. I can't find the setting to make the pdf previewable, so I've included a couple of preview images in the product page.

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.
