Classic Modules Today: A0 Danger at Darkshelf Quarry


A0 Danger at Darkshelf Quarry was first published by Wizards of the Coast LLC in 2013 as part of a compilation of the classic “Against the Slave Lords” adventure modules. Alongside the classic A1-A4 series, the new A0 module was included as an introduction to the storyline. “Danger at Darkshelf Quarry,” written by Skip Williams in 2013, was developed to “create a campaign-friendly introductory adventure for the series.” Unlike the A1-A4 modules written for fair, tournament play, A0 is written thirty years later to better guide new players through the treacherous world of the slave traders at the heart of this series. 

This conversion guide allows DMs to run the original module with 5th Edition rules and provides a reference sheet for all encounters.

To use this conversion guide you will need a copy of “A0 Danger at Darkshelf Quarry.” This module can be found in “Against the Slave Lords,” a compilation of the A-Series modules, available in hard-copy and now for sale in Digital format at

Just a clarification, this is not a playable product, just a list of converted stats. You will need the original or reprinted module to use this product.

Also, as noted by others, the cover pictured in the product listing here and in the preview, is NOT included in the download.

Per Michael's review, I have updated this conversion. Specifically, I have corrected errors in three NPCs: HP for Brubgrok, Glyrthiel, and the Sergeant of Arms have been corrected. I have also updated the Dex and AC for Glyrthiel. In making these corrections, I also considered adjusting the Mudtiger statistics but have kept it as per my original conversion notes to reflect a challenge rating appropriate to a final foe in this challenge. Feedback for any future edits is appreciated. AG

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.
