Upsetting the Balance - A Tome of Foes Adventure


A Finger on the Scale…

When the adventurers are tasked with destroying a symbol of Demogorgon, they end up falling foul of the great mage Mordenkainen himself – or at least a simulacrum of him.

Will they agree to help maintain the great Balance of the Blood War, even if means sacrificing innocent lives in the process?

This short adventure can either be run as a one-shot or neatly slotted into a long-running campaign. No matter which you choose, it provides both adventures and DMs alike a chance to try out some of the new monsters from Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, including new taken on demons and trolls as well as a range of deadly elemental warriors.

On top of that, it introduces players to the fabled Mordenkainen and his sometimes controvertial approach to the great Blood War between demons and devils, potentially setting up an explosive end to a campaign.

  • Recommended Level: 14-16
  • Estimated play time: 3-5 hours
  • Dificulty: Medium
  • Setting: Wilderness

Note: This adventure is intended to work with Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, and requires a copy of the book to run succesfully.

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.
