Broken Mine 5E


Old stories tell of the wizard Kelsun, better known as Kelsun the Mad Prophet, who was driven mad by visions of a world-shaking disaster. Fortunately, his madness proved to be benevolent—he set out, in his odd way, to help ensure that items of power would be available to help rebuild civilization after the disaster. Unfortunately, his benevolent madness was…madness. He created strange dungeons filled with exotic traps and monsters to guard these items. As most dungeon creators do, he left cryptic and even bizarre clues regarding the locations of his caches.

One such clue was entrusted to an order of druids and, after centuries, they finally managed to locate the dungeon in question. However, as is always the case, they will call on the heroic adventurers to recover the item promised to them, a magical vine. In return, the brave survivors will be able to keep all the other treasures of the broken mine.

Broken Mine is a D&D 5E compatible adventure. It is intended for a party of 4th-6th level characters.

Here are some of the features of the adventure:

  • Random encounters for the area.
  • Detailed color maps for the adventure.
  • Full statistics are included for all encounters—no need to look up monsters.
  • Unusual traps.
  • Hero Lab support.
  • Character Sheets for each NPC/Monster (not included in page count).

Kerry J,
A) The valve could be spotted from the shore, but that would probably require an active search. If the characters are under the water in the area, then a passive search would work.
B) The spider etchings are on the top of the stones, so a character can spot them from above. Passive perception can work-when running games, I routinely just match passive perception against everything unless otherwise noted. The PCs can be on one or more ledges.
C) Your choice as a DM; I had it awake when the party tried to loot the room.
Thanks for your questions, I hope these answers help.

I have several questions about various aspects of the adventure...


A) Level One: 1. Stream Valve: can the valve be spotted from the shore or does a character need to be in the water? Must the character be actively searching or can it be noticed using passive Perception?

B) Level One: 9. Ledge Shaft: can a character see the spider on each ledge from above or does he need to actually be on the ledge? Must the character be actively searching or can it be noticed using passive Perception? Does the trigger of two or more PCs on the ledges mean two PCs on the same ledge or can they be on separate ledges?

C) Level Three: 3. Final Chamber: when does the earth elemental awaken? When the PCs enter the room? When they grab the chest?

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.
