The Islands of Insanity


Deep in the Trackless Sea a strange mist traps adventurers in the dark waters surrounding an island chain.  Each island is a mysterious world onto itself, but can the adventurers unlock their secrets in time to stop the Elder Evil causing this aberration?

The Islands of Insanity is a mini-campaign.  This adventure is designed to work as a wrap around story.  Each Island is a separate adventure with only a few requirements placed on it.  The primary goal is to allow a sampling of different adventures and/or different DMs through the frame adventure. 72 pages, monster stats in text, unique items, examples maps, an extra "redacted copy" for player DMs that want to try DMing without spoiling the overall adventure, modular build for expansion or replayabilty.  Contains two example Island Adventures.

This is an experimental attempt and fairly flexible.  But the surprises and themes will be much more effective if the inner workings are not revealed to the party.  Additionally, there may be small or large connection to other future or past adventures, but this adventure is highly modular and can be played as a standalone.  This is intended to be one of two possible mini-campaign finales for the A and B interconnected adventures arcs of The Doom Portals storyline.  This adventure is crazy. 

An 8-12 hour (or longer) Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons adventure for 12th-19th level characters suggested for all alignments

 (1st draft; The Doom Portals storyline DP-6AB)

There's a couple mentions of a 'Madreus.' But I can't find any mention as to who or what that is.

That ties in with the loose thread that weird, far-realm stuff is happening similar perhaps to firestorm peak. I think I was imagining an old school DM picking that thread up and maybe playing with it, but really it's just minor flavor.

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.
