The Rift



About the Adventure:

Discover a dark gateway connecting the Material Plane to Avernus, the First Circle of the Nine Hells!

When searching for a way to enter Avernus, an adventuring party finds a mysterious volcanic lair called The Rift. Rumors say that a long-neglected dark gateway to the Nine Hells resides within. However, those telling the tails have left out an important detail... Your players will be in for a nice surprise when they meet Bolgauc, an obsidian golem constructed by fiends in service of the Archdevil Zariel. This adventure has been designed for a party of five or six 8th-level characters.

Will the players survive when they confront this monstrosity in his lair?

This adventure contains custom monsters balanced for the 5e challenge rating system and a beautifully hand-drawn map provided by Blue Sword Games (including player and DM versions).

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.
