The Proving Glade


The Proving Glade is a one-shot adventure meant for parties or duets.

Your characters arrive in a small settlement that has a big problem. The forest, its lifeblood, has seemingly withdrawn its bounty. Others have gone in, only to return hours later confused about how they got out.

Will your party have the wherewithal to navigate the treacherous forest, pass its surprising tests, and uncover what’s truly going on?

I wanted a forest adventure that felt alive and busy. I also didn’t want every encounter to be solved with the swing of a sword. The Proving Glade is about questioning value, morality, judgement, and redemption.

This adventure was written as part of the Summer 2019 RPG Writer's Workshop. We also submitted In the Heart of the ForestWhile these two adventures are not necessarily connected, they both involve navigating difficult and dangerous scenarios in a forest and could naturally be strung together.

This Product Includes

  • A 3 to 4 hour one-shot designed for parties or 1-1 play.
  • A new Sidekick stat block: Daelin Hoofbane, ranger extraordinaire.
  • A new custom creature: the mysterious and powerful Alseiad, a glade nymph of incredible beauty.
  • 2 new maps: One region map for tha forest around Quaervarr near Silverymoon and one battle map for The Hydra's Mire.

What I like about this product is the general idea of something changing for worse in an old forest, effecting the village nearby. I also think the sidekick character has potential with his wish to find his lost companion again. And the colourful maps [...]

This a relatively short adventure, coming up at 14 pages, but the amount of content, possibilities and depth it packs into those pages is incredible! There is a great introduction discussing the possibilities of running this adventure for group [...]

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.
