CCC-ODFC02-02 Palace of the Efreeti


A young Mulmaster nobleman attempts to revive the Cult of Eternal Flame by seeking out the patronage of a powerful being. His relatives have hired you to stop his plans and bring him home, even if you must chase him across the planes and over the Sea of Fire to do so.

A four-hour adventure for 5th - 10th level characters. This adventure contains dangerous planar exploration, social intrigue with otherworldly beings, an intricate puzzle in a lava-filled room (with multiple versions for repeat players), and combat encounters in unique environments that provide the DM with optional tools to challenge even the most capable of parties.

Palace of the Efreeti also features NPCs that were first introduced in DDEX2-15 Black Heart of Vengeance and there are additional story tie-ins for characters who have played that adventure. However, knowledge of Black Heart of Vengeance is not necessary to understand and enjoy this adventure.

In addition, Palace of the Efreeti makes use of the Tarokka deck from Curse of Strahd in a unique manner. The Tarokka deck is not a required item for the DM; there is a printable alternative found in the appendix for those without access to one.

This adventure comes with the following files:

  • Adventure PDF (fully-bookmarked)
  • Magic item certificate PDF
  • Printer-friendly version of the adventure cover as a standalone PDF
  • Story awards PDF that includes all the story awards in an easy-to-print format for handing out to each player
  • Three battlemaps in JPG format, one of which has a DM and a player version
  • Fantasy Grounds Module (module with adventure text edited to apply specifically to running on Fantasy Grounds; all of the puzzles and encounters are fully implemented)

I see that changes were made to reflect season 8 changes, but why keep the XP and gold rewards, along with the renown header?

There were modest changes to make the adventure content work better for season 8 (i.e. gold cost for bribing, making the trinket work). However, this is still a pre-season 8 module, and it would take far too much time to make the cosmetic elements conform with the season 8 format since the new template is so drastically different (in fact, it's not really possible to make this module fit within the 3 episode framework without drastically changing the adventure).

Basically, the old elements that can just be easily ignored are still there (e.g. XP and gold), but anything that had to change to make the adventure run well under S8 rules have been fixed.

Hi Michael, I'm running this next week. Any idea how the crown gets distributed under season 8 rules?
Since its value would add nothing to party rewards, I just want to give it out and say "here, someone take it."

Yeah, season 8 rules really mess with the adventure as it is. I would suggest just treating it as an individual story award without needing to pay for it and maybe reduce the gp costs in part 2.

It went well. The players enjoyed it, especially doing something that was genuinely different.
In part 2, the party volunteered to spend an hour loading the boat rather than pay which made a pretty good compromise. They were really reluctant to spend any gold.

Got to play this adventure this week and the whole group really enjoyed it. Well-written descriptions and well-designed puzzle. Easily near the top of my favourite CCCs now!

Just FYI...the cert is labeled Vault of the Efreeti...not Palace of the Efreeti.

Thanks for commenting Curtis. The cert is not in error. Vault of the Efreeti is the name of the item. The name of the adventure is the line underneath that.

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.
