Cliffhanger Abbey

Cliffhanger Abbey


It's a dark and stormy night, and you trudge exhausted up the hill to the sanctuary of Cliffhanger Abbey. Surely here you will find a place to rest your weary feet until dawn? What could possibly go wrong...

Cliffhanger Abbey is a Ravenloft adventure for 4-6 level one characters. It is set in Gothic Earth, a domain very similar to our own, but can easily be placed wherever you wish in the domains of dread or inserted as a deadly side-quest for your non-Ravenloft campaign. The adventure invokes themes from the gothic horror genre. It should take 1-2 hours to complete depending on how much of the material you opt to use, and your group's speed at handling combat encounters. Cliffhanger Abbey also includes guidance on the Gothic Earth setting, and mechanics to help invoke the right atmosphere for the bleak, magic starved world.

Cliffhanger Abbey made some really bold choices as an adventure that really worked for me. First up, I love the fact that we're seeing Gothic Earth content under the Ravenloft banner on DMsGuild. Gothic Earth was always an underappreciated sett [...]

It's very exciting to see Gothic Earth arriving on The DMs Guild. It's almost as exciting to see Oliver Clegg's trademark dark humour turned on it. I'm very tempted to run this at a convention just to see a bunch of unwitting strangers' faces w [...]

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.
