Dragon Dreams of the Forest Kingdom: Dunshield’s Dilemma

Dragon Dreams of the Forest Kingdom: Dunshield’s Dilemma


“Dragon Dreams of the Forest Kingdom: Dunshield’s Dilemma” is the first in a series of free articles inspired by the dreams of sleeping dragons that lair on Cormyr’s borders.

This inaugural article recounts the events ensnaring the mist dragon Orothaumyth and the Arabellan dealer of arms and armors Auntiver Dunshield. The article introduces a handful of new magic items (Brooch of Defense, Gauntlets of Ironguard, Ring of Silent Sentinels), a magical gemstone unique to the Forgotten Realms (rogue stone), and a pair of old spells with new 5E game statistics (Gemjump and Ironguard).

Lastly, you’ll find game stats for a terrible artifact from Cormyr’s past: The Wyvern Crown of Cormyr.

I hope you enjoy this free article, and all the articles to come.

What level party is this for? Please always be sure to add that information in the description and the first page. Even if it is designed for all levels, mention that.

Hello Jeffrey,

Thank you for taking the time to comment.

This free product is simply a resource. It's not meant to be an adventure, or meant to be tied to a particular set of levels.

Rather, this product is something that can help a Dungeon Master to imagine the doings of a particular dragon and one small slice of eastern Cormyr.

Can you re-upload with embedded fonts? All I get is a bunch of black dots.

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.
