The One shot itself is good, the maps do not translate at all to Roll20 and Foundry.

Hey before I buy this, I just want to make sure—this comes with a pdf, yes?

Are the specters in room 24 hostile? I'd assume so but wasn't totally sure.

First time DM—sorry if this is an obvious question. The map marked for the players shows the secret rooms. Do I give them this map or follow the “theater of the mind” model?

If playing online, most people use a tool (such as owlbear rodeo) that allows you to enable "fog of war" and hide the rooms until they are discovered

My players feel like they have to both disrobe and hold the gem when grasping the gates. What happens then? The way it's written, it sort of handles the cases of disrobing without the gem, or carrying normal stuff and having the gem (which is sort of how you "successfully" exit.) They've found and collected the various items successfully, so it'd be weird to teleport them out without anything (including the items they went in with.)

I ran this for my group as a detour from Dragonheist because we were short a couple of people. It was so much fun. Highly recommended. Honestly probably the highlight of the campaign so far. Thanks!

What kind of lighting conditions does the Alley map have? It's an alley, so I assumed whatever time of day lighting because of the Wall of Force above the alley being invisible, but some rooms are domed etc, and there are plenty of monsters that use darkness etc. Clarification por favor.

Except where there is an obvious light source (e.g. the panic room), assume interior rooms are dark.

Looking at room 24. Twisty & Narrow, and I'm trying to figure out a way for the trap ever trigger. I see the players just following the 'Yellow brick road' without any complications. I guess what I'm trying to understand is what is the 'gotcha' moment outside don't touch the grey blocks. Is the room intended to be that simple trap and I'm just overthinking it? (maybe that is the trap.)

It is that simple. A surprising number of players, in our experience, will step off the path to find out what happens. There is also a big contingent of players who will be highly suspicious of the yellow path because it is "too inviting." Will be interesting to see how your players handle it!

From a DMing point of view, how is the hallway between 26 and 6 intended to accessed? If the bars cannot be bent are the players supposed to just chip away at the window with their weapons until it breaks apart?

The hallway is accessed from the south. It is not intended that the players can break through the bars - the purpose of this window is for them to see what's in room 26 but not be able to reach it immediately.

Thanks for responding! Oh, I was looking at the PNG map files and thought that the south to north passage reaches a dead end because the west to the east passage of 5 bisects it and not that 5 was above that south to north passage. Looking at the map in the PDF I can see how the south to north passage does cut through as you described.

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.
