Balduran's Keep Adventure: Goblins at the Gate


From now through November 30th, this digital title has been marked down for the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend! For more savings, visit our Black Friday/Cyber Monday page.

A goblinoid host amasses outside the front gate of your keep, intent on claiming the stronghold as their own. It's a knock-down, drag-out brawl at the front door. But the frontal assault is just a distraction for the two infiltration teams to slip past your defenses....

A One-Shot Stonghold Adventure for 9th- to 11th-Level Characters!

This is the fourth volume in the "Balduran's Stronghold Adventures" series. The titles in this series originally appeared in chapter 3 of Balduran's Guide to Kingdom Building, a D&D fifth edition rules supplement also available on the Dungeon Master's Guild.

Each title in the "Balduran's Stronghold Adventures" series comes with a one-shot adventure set in a stronghold, a detailed combat map depicting the building, an overview of the location, and suggested boons such a place might grant the adventurers.

How Do I Use This Title?

There are two obvious ways this book might help the DM's campaign.

First, if the heroes want to build a stronghold, this series provides information about each one along with boons to motivate the players to complete construction. The map is a good default blueprint should players not want to design their own building. Finally, the stronghold-specific adventure is icing on the cake.

Second, this title works as a standalone one-shot adventure for times when the players unexpectantly say, "Let's go to that keep we saw." Now you have an adventure ready to go.

If you already have a copy of Balduran's Guide to Kingdom Building, you already have this title.

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.
