CCC-SHINY-02 An Open Secret


In a smoky tavern in the frontier town of Ylraphon, a drunken sailor cries in her beer.
Befriending a group of adventurers, she confesses that she saw her spouse with someone
else, and she worries what may come of it. Beseeching the adventurers to help her, the
sailor asks them to investigate to find if her fears have come true, or if it is all a simple

A 2-Hour Adventure for 1st-4th Level Characters

A stand-alone adventure that takes place in the frontier town of Ylraphon, An Open Secret premiered at MALCon 2018.  The adventure includes SIX different versions of events, making lending to greater replayability with different encounters and outcomes!

Note that this adventure does include mature content, such as talk about sexuality and relationships beyond that of a traditional marriage.  Characters (and players) may question the NPCs involved in this adventure. That is completely understandable, as not everyone comprehends or agrees with other people’s life choices. However, this game is about inclusion of lifestyles that don’t necessarily fall inline with our own. The Realms are full of cultures that color outside the lines of the beliefs of players, and hopefully everyone can embrace these differences at the gaming table.

I've DM'ed this three times and have come to love the variability of this adventure! Though some players may find it odd that the protagonist doesn't just confront the problem head on her self, role played well, characters will be hooked and want to either hurt, or help, many of those involved! Combined with the fact that it's really 8 adventures in one, this is really worth the price if you don't get a freebie for DM'ing it!

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.
