PART OF "SVEN'S 2019 BUNDLE OF ADVENTURES"

Sven's 2019 Adventure Bundle

 

"Cirria's Gambit delivers a fun, sandbox-style adventure with resources, tables, and encounters that could prove useful to DMs well beyond the scope of the one-shot. [...] The production values are unimpeachable [...] 4/5" - Tal Aviezer for TT Level Up

"The adventure is one part sandbox soap opera, one part open world adventure game (feels like some of the CD ROM games I used to play as a kid) and one part role reversal as we see traditional fantasy tropes fall away from Cirria and Lady Kaera. The adventure is fantasticly laid out, with plenty of opportunities for improvisation and diverse encounters."Cameron Day from Comics, Clerics, & Controllers

 

So glad you could make it, welcome to the party! Cirria’s Gambit is a fiendishly fun feast for 2nd-4th level characters, designed for D&D 5E. You can run this as a six- to eight-hour adventure and you will find additional material here to weave into your on-going campaign if you and your players enjoy the party - stay as long as you like!

 

This adventure takes you and your players out on a party - "Cirria's Gambit" is rife with ingrigue and party high-jinx! When an unusually intelligent succubus who is too kind for hell and a regal banshee with a strict sense of tradition and duty clash, the party better have some guests who are capable of negotiation and deduction as much as combat. While your players navigate snobbish nobles and intoxicated socialites, they have to untangle what goes on behind the scenes of this feast and decide who the baddies are...

 

To help you run a hellishly good party your players won't soon forget, this adventure comes with...

...18 unique NPCs, such as renegade noble Countess Nadyia Silmerhelve and noble duellist Lord Zebedaya Karda, fleshed out with customized stat blocks, backstories and roleplay advice.

Format
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.
