The Fool's Keep

Suggested Price $0.50

A chilling whistling comes from one room in the Fool’s Keep.  Can the adventurers solve the mystery?  A 1 hour Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons encounter for all level characters suggested for all alignments (1st draft; Standalone)

“There’s a room in the keep,” he says, “which has an infernal whistling in it at night; haunting it.  It's not ordinary whistling, and it isn't the wind." Your host doesn’t look as sure.  “Several people have bought the Keep during the last thirty-odd years.  They never stay long.  It’s a trick, an old rival house’s spell or the commoners joke on the nobility, perhaps?  There’s something unnerving in the sound.  They call it ‘the Fool’s Keep’ because only a fool would stay the night.”

The Fool’s Keep is a mystery, but not heavy with on combat.  In a twist on the "locked room mystery" the players can't stay in the room long enough to investigate.  This encounter is intended to be a standalone, easily dropped into any campaign, but there are a number of options to expand the encounter into a mini-adventure with combat, investigation, traps/effects, and social interaction. Includes suggestions for increasing difficulty for higher level parties.

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.
