Classic Modules Today: B1 In Search of the Unknown



If you do not have the original module, it can be found here.

Introduction: In 1979, TSR packaged this module with the boxed Dungeons and Dragons Basic Set. The module was written by Mike Carr with illustrations by David C. Sutherland III and David A. Trampier. It was marked as a “Special Instructional Module” and designed for beginning Dungeon Masters to give them a taste of stocking a dungeon and running an adventure. The original 32 page booklet had an outer folder with maps and a two-color cover. This conversion guide allows DMs to run the original module with 5th Edition rules and provides a reference sheet for encounters, traps and treasures.

 A 20+ hour adventure for 1st– 3rd level characters

Buyer Beware: The original module was REQUIRED, and not part of this purchase. This is basically a 5 and a half page update to some content of the original. If you do not have that original, you're screwed. This fact is not stated anywhere.

There is a typo on the reference sheet. The Room of pools starts at O) rather than A)

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.
