The Celestial Job


The Celestial Job is a planar adventure for a party of 3rd level characters and can be played in approximately four hours. The adventure takes players from their home world to the city of Sigil and across the multiverse, entangling them in the politics of the Outer Planes!

The players are asked by an agent of the Lady of Pain to steal a particular item from Mount Celestia. The item, a golden lotus flower, contains the soul of an enlightened mortal sage who discovered the interconnectedness and secret passages among the planes.

Along the way, the PCs entertain two other offers for the soul lotus, one from the devils of hell and another from the demons of the abyss. After confronting the lotus’ guardians the players must decide whether to return the lotus to the agent of the Lady of Pain, to give the lotus to the demons or the devils, or even to keep the lotus for themselves.

This one-shot D&D adventure was written by DM Rob and DM Matt of Dungeon Master of None. You can listen to us create and revise the adventure on the podcast. If you have time, let us know how it goes. Check out our show for more cool RPG stuff!

Since I am currently running a Keys from the Golden Vault campaign, it would be nice to know if this one shot could be adapted to higher level characters.

Absolutely! All of the main "heist" challenges still work at high levels (there are no high level spells or abilities that trivialize encounters, except for a climbing section). The Plane Shift spell will give players more flexibility in escaping but not entering the main site of the heist. The monsters will, of course, need to be re-skinned or replaced with level appropriate stat blocks, but thankfully the 5e SRD has plenty of high level fiends and celestials.

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.
