"The story really captures your imagination and the layout is beautiful." - Neal S.

"Wow!...I am super impressed, it is laid out beautifully, with detailed explanations and history." - Si. M

"[I]t looks amazing! The art and format looks great and looks as professional as an official campaign book." - Steven E.

"The writing is both captivating and near perfect, flowing from the pages in a succinct, yet engrossing fashion." - Ryan Langr in 5-star DM Level Up review (see link in comment section below)


The Priest, the Witch, and the Lost Temple is a 40-page adventure for characters of levels 2 to 3. The town of Whitehaven is beset with undead. The townsfolk are quick to blame the so-called Witch of Whitehaven, who lives nearby with her partner in the Surbrin Hills. Yet a more insidious evil lurks in the midst of town, cloaked in a holy man’s robes. And far underground, an ancient evil artifact stirs. The town is in need of heroes. Will you answer the call?

In this adventure, you will find:

  • a description of the town of Whitehaven
  • a vivid cast of characters in the town and beyond
  • a variety of locations that could be used or adapted elsewhere, including a town, crypts, a wizard’s home, and an underground temple
  • a combination of roleplay, exploration, and combat encounters
  • an adventure likely to entail 12-15 hours of gameplay.

There is not a map of Whitehaven with this download. The campaign gives map indications (W7, W10, etc.) but there isn't a Whitehaven map.

Where can we get one to go with this campaign?

Hi Justice. Sadly, I didn't have the skills to put together a map of the town myself and didn't have the funds to commission someone to draw it either. Perhaps in a future upload, I'll be able to include such a map. Otherwise, the town numbers are really there to make it easy for the DM to keep tabs of locations. But, in the description, I tried to make it as clear as possible the general geographic features, certain key locations and where they are in relation to each other (e.g., inn, mill, tower, church, crypts).

Otherwise, I do have maps for all the locations where I expect combat to take place, such as in the town's tower, crypts, etc. The only exception is the fight in the town streets in Chp 3, and I thought that that is simple enough not to require a map.

Hi folks. To those who've purchased. First, thank you. Second, I noticed some typos in the document, so I've uploaded a new version with these typos fixed. I should note that nothing substantive was changed. The new pdf has "typos fixed" in the file name.

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.
