Grasp of the Emerald Claw: An Expansion and 5e Conversion Guide


Grasp of the Emerald Claw

The epic Eberron adventure that began in The Forgotten Forge comes to its epic conclusion as you travel to the jungles of Xen'drik in this race against evil!

This classic 3.5 adventure takes the PCs from Sharn through the sahuagin-infested Thunder Sea to the city of Stormreach... and then into the jungles of Xen'drik in search of secrets locked away in the ruins of the ancient civilization of the giants.

Grasp of the Emerald Claw was originally released in 2005 as an adventure for 6th-level PCs. It was developed for D&D 3.5 and designed by Bruce Cordell as the conclusion to the story that began in The Forgotten Forge, the first adventure written for Eberron. Herein, the adventure is updated to be fully compatible with 5th edition rules. In addition, notes and additional details have been added to provide encounters, adventure hooks, and coherence with lore so that the DM can introduce some of their favorite aspects of the Eberron setting. 


  • Conversion notes, making all encounters compatible with 5th edition rules.
  • Notes on adapting the encounters to make them easier or harder so as to accomodate a party of different power level than originally intended.
  • Background information on the different encounter locations.
  • Stat blocks for a dozen named NPCs.
  • Stat blocks for well over a dozen monsters, including new undead and creatures found only in Xen'drik.
  • New magic items, including legendary items, a minor artifact, and some special sentient items.
  • Optional bonus encounters.

Please note that the original adventure is required to use this conversion.

Something is wrong with the pdf when I try to save it, it comes up with a number out of range error and wont save the file. I got around this by moving the document from the download folder to my docments folder. Just thought you would want to know

Hi Chris,

Thanks for letting me know. I'm not sure what the issue was, but I rebuilt the pdf and uploaded a new version. Hopefully that will resolve it.

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.
