The Floating Islands


An original one-shot adventure designed for 3-5 level 5 characters.

Jungle covered floating islands carry a monastery as a pirate ship circles below.


After the discovery of other planes by a group of mages named the Clairvoyant Arcane, many gateways appeared across the world. One such portal created what has come to be known as the Floating Islands of Avat'ar. These monuments of stone hover over the sea a few hours travel from Neverwinter.

Rumors say the motes are from the Elemental Plane of Air and with them came strange creatures as well. However, no one has been able to ascend the stones to investigate further. Those who have tried plunged into the ocean depths, either never to return or gave up on finding fortune and glory.

Recently, captain Willa “The Baroness” Lance and her crew claimed the islands under their flag and prevent others from getting close. She’s set up a contest to see who can reach the top of the islands the fastest and discover what lies on the largest landmass. Who will be the first to ascend the towering stones and find what awaits on the peak?

Hm... I might throw this into my Eberron campaign once the PCs are seasoned enough to take it on.

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.
