THE SECOND ADVENTURE IN THE TENETS OF BANE SERIES

A devout priestess of Torm seeks one of three platinum discs once carried by a trio of Banite fanatics. To retrieve the item, the characters must sail the Moonsea, journey to its depths, and unravel the protective magic left behind by the archmage who originally hid the disc.

A 2-hour adventure for 1st-4th level characters

Each adventure in the Tenets of Bane series was written for the 2018 Winter War gaming convention in Champaign-Urbana, IL. For more information on Winter War, visit winterwar.org.

This adventure includes:

  • Official Adventurers League magic item certificate
  • Printable color battle maps for all encounters in PDF format
  • Color battle maps in JPG format for use with virtual tabletop software
  • An interesting mix of combat, exploration, roleplaying, and problem solving
  • A secondary PDF that includes revised adventure rewards for the Adventurers League changes implemented with season 8
  • A Fantasy Grounds module file with color maps and custom monster tokens

Note: The first three adventures in the Tenets of Bane series (In the Face of Fear, Dark Waters of Hate, and Tyrant of the Forgotten Forge) may be played in any order. The fourth adventure (The Black Hand) is best played after completing the first three.

I'm prepping this to run tomorrow, and noticed a discrepancy: in the 'underwater rules' sidebar and hideout, there is no mention of disadvantage on exhaustion checks if wearing (any?) armour or carrying a shield, but this disadvantage is mentioned in the DM notes on pages 9 &12.

If I remember correctly, the information in the sidebar contains official rules from the PH and DMG. The disadvantage for armor or a shield is specific to the adventure, thus it wasn't included in the sidebar.

That's fine but shouldn't it then be included in the handout to players? It would be a bit harsh to hit them with disadvantage by surprise...

I will keep it in mind if the adventure is ever rewritten or updated, which seems unlikely since the CCC program has been replaced by the new Dungeoncraft program. That said, feel free to let your players know about the armor disadvantage when you give them the handout.

We ran it yesterday and enjoyed it very much. Just one thing, which was no big deal, but might help other players: The APL's on page 3 are missing in the table ;)

Just ran this one yesterday. Excellent adventure! I especially enjoyed the finale and exposition. Lots of the contingencies provided worked like a charm. I have some thoughts about the layout of the palace, but otherwise it was a smooth experience. Again, I'd leave a review, but I am technically a publisher.

I keep seeing in the files that there is a v1.1, and a v2. What is the difference in those files?
Customer avatar

CREATOR
Version 1.1 was released prior to the season 8 AL changes. Version 2 contains guidance for awarding magic item unlocks, assigning advancement and treasure checkpoints, etc.

Thank you for your help with that. Makes perfect sense!

I see that the first in the series is "modded" for Fantasy Grounds. Are there plans to Mod the other 3? I would buy the whole set if they were all modded. Thanks :)

The first adventure was modded by someone in the community and given to me. At this time, I have no plans to port the remaining adventures to Fantasy Grounds, but if someone from the community wants to do so, I will happily add them as downloads.

I haven't run it yet, but on the front page of the PDF, the Adventure Code says: CCC-WWC-01 , when it SHOULD be CCC-WWC-02

Thanks, Terrelle. I fixed this and uploaded a new copy of the adventure.

Thanks! Also, upon further reading. On Players Handout 2, the Underwater Adventuring rules are printed twice on the page. Is that Intentional?
Customer avatar
Dave Z May 02, 2018 11:37 am UTC
CREATOR
It is intentional. I like to print multiple copies of the page and cut them in half to make sure each player at the table has their own copy of the rules.

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.
