The Festival of Magic


The Festival of Magic is a short introductory adventure for a group of of 1st-characters, compatible with the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition game system. It is designed to be used at any time, and can be inserted in to any campaign set in a large city (simply change the city's name - Galena - for your city of choice) if you want something to entertain the party or serve as a means of gaining more information by helping the local government.

     For almost a century, the city of Galena has hosted a grand convention of magic every ten years, inviting everyone from apprentices to the most powerful of wizards of the region to attend and share their knowledge and experiences amongst other practitioners of the arcane arts. It also hosts organized conferences (including a much-anticipated keynote by a local legend) and training sessions to teach inexperienced wizards how to control more powerful magics, as well as exhibitions for those who fear magic to educate them that magic can be used for good.

     Ten years ago, there was an unfortunate series of incidents at the festival, a chain of events that caused so much chaos during the convention that the organizers were unwilling to host it ever again. But after the insistence of some members of the city council, the organizers agreed to host the convention within the city limits again.

     If only there were a group of people that would be willing to volunteer and maintain order during the festival...

The Festival of Magic is also available for Fantasy Grounds!

I ran this adventure as a segue to a larger campaign. The players really enjoyed the humour and pace of the module. i found it very easy to adapt it to my needs to add the easter eggs of where our game will be headed. It did actually run a little longe [...]

It was a great adventure for 3 friends who had never played D&D before. Flaming Octopus is also my new band name so that was serendipitous. Buy this for your next Level 1 adventure. You won't regret it. [...]

As a fairly new DM, I loved that I was able to skim read the adventure and charge in. The flaming octopus was a brilliant way to set the tone, and encouraged the players to inhabit their characters from the beginning. Sadly, they couldn't find a way to [...]

This is 100% the adventure you should run for new players at level 1. Or if you're a new DM and need a good introduction. Because this adventure is very linear while allowing room for the players to explore, has a great sense of humor and still some mo [...]

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.
