The Dark God in the Well: A One Shot


Starting June 3rd and until 12/31/2020, all proceeds I personally receive from the sale of this product will be donated to the Bail Project. 

More information can be found here: 

Deep in the Evermoors, a troll shaman disillusioned with the preachings of Vaprak's faithful came upon a surprising discovery while searching through ruins of a long forgotten human settlement: a Dark God in a Well. Or at least, that's what she claimed.

The Dark God in the Well is a strange encounter for those foolish enough to brave the troll infested lands of the Sword Coast North. Recommended for 4-5 8th level players.

Great for use as a One Shot, a fleshed out random encounter, or a side quest!

What do you get in this PDF?

  • A Short Adventure: This adventure can be easily dropped into any game. Personally, I think it can kick up Storm King's Thunder, Out of the Abyss, or Ghosts of Saltmarsh a little bit if you are into some awesome premade adventures. It was written with Forgotten Realms flavor, but that can be easily changed.
  • A New Monster: The dreaded Troll Shaman. I have purchased a fair amount of Monster Manual type books and there are no spellcasting trolls! 
  • New Variant Rules: Do you struggle with skill based encounters? Check out the system I use under the Escape section!
  • A Good Time: Ok, that may sound presumptuous, but I can say we sure had a blast. I bet you will too!

This is one of the best methods I have experienced so far in how to run skill challenges. Also nice to see a spell casting variant for a traditional monster.

Thank you! Yeah it was super odd to me that there are no Spellcasting trolls. Really sort of sticks them into the “we eat people and not much else” hole.

I played through this one shot and it was a fun night of play as we tried to figure out just how to deal with everything going on. Give it a try and maybe you’ll do better and not lose an axe beak!

That was pretty unfortunate, I had forgotten about that!

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.
