The Maze Beneath the Maize


All around the sleepy town of Stawford lies rich farmland. The area near the foothills is especially fertile. Well, was especially fertile. First the Sundering, and now frequent earthquakes have left the region in disarray. At the dead center of the chaos is the Therayle farmstead.

The farm, which has been in the family for generations, was the best producing in the region. It now faces ruin. Hugh Therayle, the current owner, is at wit's end trying to reestablish even a modicum of control over the disrupted land. But, when Hugh saw the ancient doorway jutting up from the middle of the field where his corn used to be, he knew that this wasn't the type of problem a plow could solve.

We're excited to offer the first Broken Knives premium release, this adventure for a group of 5th level characters contains:

- A unique open-ended mystery that unfolds as the characters delve deeper.

- Can be easily adapted or dropped into any Forgotten Realms campaign.

- Custom monsters with unique artwork.

- Custom magic items.

- Three new maps (maze map and two battlemaps) that are high-resolution and print quality, optimized for your favorite digital or real tabletop.

An excellent 5th level adventure to be sure. If you guys are a little more curious about what you'll get when you buy this adventure, check out my DMs Guild spotlight video on the subject:

Also I started to run this campaign as a small one shot (turned into a 3 shot). The link the playlist so far is here:

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.
