Curse of the Gnoll: Drop-In Side Quest for Any Level

Suggested Price $2.50

The party finds a secret chamber in a cavern, which was used as a gnoll hideout years ago before being cleared out by other adventurers. The secret chamber features a shrine to the demon lord Yeenoghu. If a PC puts their blood in the bowl of the shrine, they will slowly begin to transform into a gnoll.

This quick side quest can be dropped in any adventure, and can be used at any level. The first section should be used in an underground setting, but can be adapted to be used in a dungeon or other appropriate setting. The consequences of that encounter will develop slowly over the following days/weeks/months.

The file includes:

  • gnoll racial traits
  • flavor text to describe the afflicted PC's transformation
  • descriptions of dreams that haunt the afflicted PC
  • rules for removing the curse
  • 3 plot hooks to further the adventure

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.
