Starburn Academy
Full‑size Preview

Starburn Academy


Everyone who’s anyone has heard of Starburn Academy. The elite boarding school is famous for teaching students to excel in magic, history, fighting, and anything else a precocious child in the city of Seledor needs to know. 

But now, one instructor at the school is using his position to carry out a nefarious plot which is at best unethical and at worst deeply dangerous. The only people standing in his way are a mage with an unreliable reputation and the handful of talented children she picked off the street to infiltrate the school and get the evidence needed to take him down. 

That is, you. 


This 5th-edition adventure is designed to take 5-6 hours, but can easily be expanded into a multi-session campaign. It is optimized for a party of 3-4 second or third-level characters, all of whom should be the equivalent of 10-13 years old in human years. 

This product includes:

  • Both a stylized, 18-page PDF with beautiful illustrations and a document containing the full text of the adventure simplified for accessibility.
  • The location of Starburn Academy, a fantasy school with twelve different locations to explore that is populated with dozens of interesting NPCs.
  • Six optional pre-generated player characters.
  • A mechanic that allows characters to attend classes and gain “knowledge points” that can help them with skill checks. 
  • An adventure that can be an accessible introduction for new players or a departure from the “standard” DnD tropes for experienced players who want to try something new.

Starburn Academy is a rare find with the adventure located in a magical academy and all PCs expected to be children/pre-teens. While danger does lurk around every corner, players are not necessarily expected to fight their way through the adventure. Ra [...]

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.
