Strange things have been happening at the king's court, and one of the courtiers is worried. Some of the king's other advisors have been making unusual recommendations of late, and the king has been taking their advice. Courtiers disappear without a trace or die under mysterious circumstances, those in power change their minds without apparent reason, and courtiers with unpopular opinions encounter personal emergencies that force them to leave the court. Can the PCs find and expose the nefarious source of these strange events?

Find out in the latest miniadventure for D&D v3.5 by Robert Wiese. Drop this adventure into any large city that supports a court environment. Suitable for four 11th-level characters.

Adventure Preview

The court of a ruler attracts intrigue the same way it attracts peasants looking for justice. Courtiers vie for position and favor with the ruler, and enemies plot to overthrow him and install themselves -- or at least someone more friendly to their own interests -- in his place. A veneer of civility covers this chesslike game, masking its harsh purpose and sometimes deadly import. Indeed, a modicum of pleasantry is essential, since rapidly shifting loyalties can turn enemies into allies and allies into enemies in the span of an hour. Open hostility could easily destroy any possibility of future alliances with today's enemies, so it is always better to hedge one's bets.

It is said that the real rulers of a nation rule from behind the throne. While this assertion may not be true in all cases, it is certain that when a ruler is not strong-willed, some crafty advisor almost always makes the real decisions. Such a courtier has infiltrated the court of King Ceral, and he has begun taking steps to ensure that he and he alone holds the true power.

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.
