MZA2 The Curse of Zarzumotl

Suggested Price $1.00

Welcome to the second adventure set in the True World of Maztica!

This adventure is inspired by B4 The Lost City by Tom Moldvay, but is designed for a Maztica campaign.  The adventure is easily convertible to any setting, and only truly requires a desert that has the potential to conceal an extensive underdark.  It is designed to be a challenging adventure for four 3rd to 5th level characters, but is easily adjusted upwards or downwards.  

Set beneath the House of Tezca, the characters are conscripted with delivering an important trade agreement.  When a terrible sandstorm strikes and the characters lose their way, they are introduced to a hidden underground kingdom of new races and monsters unseen anywhere else.  Sure, there are plenty of humans, but good luck finding one that is even partially sane!

It all comes down to a former hero, Zarzumotl, and a pact he made long ago with powers of the Far Realm to save his people.  Perhaps, given the chance, he would have chosen otherwise.

This product will have a major update before or on 12/01/19. It will mostly address cosmetic changes, but also some editing, balance issues, inconsistencies and typos. Stay tuned.

For a good amount of time this product was not available due to an issue with the logo. Glad it’s back! Enjoy

Great product! A few things are missing: a map for the area below Zarzumotl's Keep (Rooms 24-26) and Zarzumotl's legendary actions are missing other than "move".

Also... having versions of the maps with room numbers removed would be fantastic for using with roll20 and such (players view). Typical ungrateful fella I am eh? Always wanting more! Ha!

Hi there! Thank you for the kind words, I’m glad you like it! Time to dust this fella off and make some adjustments. Allow me some time to locate the original files and get back to you after some alterations!

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.
