Down the Hole!


"Great art and production values. ... A tight and short dungeon crawl [...] with plenty of atmosphere to make the adventure fun. ...
I definitely recommend picking up this adventure especially if you are a new group."


The trendy Orcs! Orcs! Orcs! tavern franchise has made it to Waterdeep, and opening night is tomorrow! The band is hired and the barrels are tapped, but there's a problem: the franchise owners (ex-adventurers and rather negligent parents) let their kids get a sneak peak of Undermountain™, where paying customers are meant to get a taste of a real dungeon delve—and they haven't come back. Can our heroes bring back the kids (or what's left of them) in time for dinner service?

Down The Hole! is a 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons adventure for a party of 3–6 adventurers of 1st–2nd level by veteran DM Dave Mlodinoff. The adventure is framed as a classic dungeon crawl, and is designed to serve both as an introduction to D&D and the opening adventure in a campaign. First-time and long-time players alike will be challenged by the monsters, puzzles, and traps that await them…

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.
