An original one-shot adventure designed for 3-6 level 3 characters.


Summary

A recent archaeological expedition in Icewind Dale has uncovered a remarkable discovery: the Spine of the World mountain range is, in fact, the actual spine of a great giant.  The discovery confirms an ancient legend, that giants as tall as mountains once roamed the Forgotten Realms. 

Lead archaeologist Silja Stengravar knows the truth. Centuries ago, a lich, threatened by the giants’ ancient elemental power, banished their race to an abandoned planet known as Kaiva. The lich was defeated, but its curse remains, protected by its minions in the heart of Garagai Mountain. Held captive to the curse, the giants are suspended in time, unable to roam free and claim Kaiva as their own.  

Silja’s discovery has summoned the portal to Kaiva. Will adventurers brave the perilous journey through the hostile and awe-inspiring planet to destroy the curse and reawaken the giants?

Any suggestions on leveling this up a little for 3 level 5s? The setting is perfect adventure for my campaign (they need to do a quest to get the help of an white dragon) but I don't want them to steam roll the adventure.

Sure! So, you could eliminate the gemstones (or change their function) so that the players have to encounter more of the challenges with less help. You could also change the white dragon wyrmling to a young white dragon; that encounter is considered "hard" for level 5 players (challenge rating is 6). If you feel like any of the skill checks during the obstacles are too easy for level 5, I'd increase them by a couple points. And you might use a random arctic encounter as listed in the Dungeon Masters Guide. Hope that helps! Let me know how it goes!

Your cover image is fabulous. Should be part of Storm Kings Thunder!

Thanks Andrew! It's actually an image I found a while ago on a free stock site, surprisingly, and wanted to write a story about it ever since. I love the art of Storm King's Thunder!

It is! Which is funny because my other one-shot is set in a fantasy version of Tuscany. :-p

Format
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.
