Crypt of the Archmage (5e)


The secret lies inside you all, with

which to paint me on the wall.

Forge a key of ruby-red, but what

will be must then be dead.

Crypt of the Archmage is an adventure for Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition, designed to mimic the style of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons modules from the 1970s!

Enter the dungeonous crypt of the Archmage, battling puzzles, riddles, traps, and monsters en route to their massive treasure trove! 

This adventure contains:

  • Several puzzle rooms that can be adapted to any dungeon
  • 2 new magic items
  • 2 new monsters
  • A dungeon adventure for 4th to 6th-level characters
  • 2-4 sessions of fun for the whole party!

You might want to 'check' the bottom line on the front cover as I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be 'chek'.

Shoot your editor or proofreader :)

Sorry about that! Unfortunately I don’t have an editor I work on everything by myself! Usually major issues like this don’t get through. I appreciate the help. Revised copy should be up by 4:00pm EST

Of course! I set the preview, I would imagine it's just taking some time to generate. Should be 3-4 pages!

Looks great, love the artwork. Reminds me of when I first started playing back in the late 70's.

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.
