Mormesk's Diversions: Trials of the Heron's Gaze

Suggested Price $3.48

“Mormesk’s Diversions” are what I hope will be a series of quick mini-dungeons and encounters, all based around the “mysterious map” discovered in the lair of Mormesk the wraith, during the finale of The Mines of Phandelver, although it would work just as well in any other location or forest-adjacent setting with very little effort. 

"Locked within a series of trials in a hidden underground shrine, a weapon blessed by the forest goddess Mielikki lies waiting for someone worthy enough to claim it. "

Trial of the Heron’s Gaze is a short puzzle dungeon with a handful of smaller combat encounters, which should act as a short palate cleanser between “Mines of Phandelver” and the players next big adventure.

As such it is balanced for a group of four level 5 characters, but should be easy to modify for groups of higher or lower level as required simply by upping the danger in combat.

The dungeon should be playable in a single 3 hour session, depending on how easily and quickly the players solve the various puzzles.

This is such a beautiful story! THANK YOU! So well thought out. You don't need to know background to dive in, but it feels like we learn about the deity and their followers as we delve this dungeon. It fits really on the end of LMoP, but can easil [...]

This is very well-written! I was able to fit it in with one of my player's backstories perfectly. It was as if it were written just for him. The puzzle in each of the rooms made the PCs think and were engaging and fun. I definitely want more from [...]

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.
