Portals to Peril


Tales from the Yawning Portal collects several classic dungeons from previous editions of Dungeons & Dragons in a single volume. The barest connection between these adventures is implied in the introduction of the book, with the inclusion of information about the Yawning Portal, a tavern in Waterdeep which acts as a clearing house for rumors and a gateway to adventure.

Portals to Peril seeks to add an additional layer of connection between the adventures listed in Tales from the Yawning Portal, as well as any other unconnected adventures that a DM would like to string together into a single cohesive campaign.

Inside these pages you will find:

  • Options to connect the adventures featured in Tales from the Yawning Portal through planar portals.
  • Two new spells: Surelock and Warp Sense
  • Guidelines for portal keys

Additionally, Portals to Peril contains new NPCs including:

  • Kesto: Owner of the Parted Veil, the best bookstore in Sigil.
  • Kylie: An extremely knowledable guide to the streets, shops, and portals of Sigil, as well as her pet ethyk.
  • Lissandra: A native of Toril who has dedicated her life to logging every portal in Sigil.
  • Milori: A curious celestial who acts as a translator across the planes.
  • The Us: An ambitious cranium rat swarm and its gith servant, Parakk.

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.
