DDAL00-10 Trust and Understanding


The shield dwarves of western Faerûn sometimes speak of a labyrinthine structure on the shores of a misty lake. Rumored to imprison an ancient creature that predates Faerûn’s beginnings, the place has long been sealed. But now coins are showing up in bazaars and trader’s booths that match the description of those minted by this citadel, and they are rightly concerned.

A Six-to-Eight-Hour Adventure for Tier 4 Characters. Optimized for APL 18.

This adventure's code was originally DDAO-21 - part of the "Author Only" program. Due to its presence, I was able to attend dozens of gamedays, retail locations, and conventions across the United States. I ran over 100 tables of just this one adventure (never mind the dozens of other adventures for my regular local group and other adventures upon organizer request), and in the course of doing so met an unbelievable number of AWESOME players, DMs, and organizers.

Inside this download you can find not only an adventure that can be as fast as 4 hours or as long as 12 hours (the longest I ran it in one sitting!), but you will also see some custom art that was commissioned for this adventure, brand-new maps, and designer's notes on how to run this adventure. It even includes a player-appropriate appendix detailing the town of Almorel, in the Hordelands!

You can play each adventure independently. They are part of a larger story and can be played in any order, as they are not true "sequels" - instead, consider these as little views into the lost history of the Forgotten Realms.

Happy gaming, folks, and let those dice roll!

PS: seriously, check out my artists. Great people and super excited to work on these kinds of projects :)

I just played this last night using a character with a relevant Story Award. Love the lore and the throwback to Windows to the Past.

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.
