Each conversion guide will contain easy to use notes for each encounter, keeping in mind balance and 5th edition rules. There will also be added content to expand on adventures.

These guides are designed to save you time in your preparation for these adventures and to give you further content to expand on the published adventure. 

As with most early D&D Dungeon magazine adventures the original suggested levels may not be the equivalent of their 5e counterparts. I’ve converted this adventure with a party of 4 and levels 5-6 in mind and for it to be very challenging, however if you want to increase the difficulty the DMG page 82 sets out XP thresholds. I would suggest adding monsters in line with these thresholds, to aid in this I will note the encounter difficulty for each one. That said the final encounter and the lead up to it can be challenging for characters of higher levels and is more than deadly for characters of 5-6th level. 

The Dark Tower of Cabilar is found in issue #1 and provides the adventurers the opportunity to assault a tower and take on a vampire, (well a weakened vampire as a full vampire would massacre a lower level party!).

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.
