Child-God of the Violet Temple


Nestled amid the round-topped dunes of the Endless Desert lies ancient Ahlamabad, the City of Wonders, the Jeweled Throne of Heaven. You are a thief – one of the best in the ranks of the Zhentarim – and you've been invited to prove yourself by attempting one of the most important and dangerous missions yet attempted by the shadowy cabal.

Your team's objective: to kidnap an infant child from the depths of the Violet Temple, seat of power for the tyrannical Church of Uzzal. But blindly forcing your way into the church's most fortified keep will only result in your death or worse – lethal guards, weird beasts, unusual traps, and undead sentinels all await in the temple's hallways, not to mention the plague that's rumored to infest the poor souls who dwell within.

To succeed in your missions, preparation is crucial – explore the city's many colorful districts, question the fascinating locals, and pursue detailed side quests to learn the temple's secrets and ready yourself against them. But be quick about it: you have one week to produce the child, or you risk becoming the Zhentarim's next target.


CHILD-GOD OF THE VIOLET TEMPLE is an Arabian Nights-style urban heist adventure for 3-5 players of level 5 or higher. Approximate play time: four 3-hour sessions. 

Features include:

Sourcebook-style content on the desert city of Ahlamabad, complete with maps and extensive information on key residents, factions, and locales critical to the success of your party's mission.

Fully detailed side quests, perfect for playing out in a single evening – including a trip into the Trapmaker's lair and the infiltration of a revolutionary group's desert compound.

Five brand new mind-bending traps and puzzles.

A 17-page guide to the Violet Temple itself – a three-story dungeon complete with mummy-infested catacombs, imprisoned efreeti, torture chambers, puzzle traps, and more.

Exactly what my group was looking for! Half the party wanted a sun punished desert location to explore, the other a sneaky, stabby heist adventure. The Violet Temple should satisfy both and my thirst for deadly puzzle traps as well. The art is evocativ [...]

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.
