Temple of the Broken Prince


All 13 pages of this adventure, spread out

A 2-4 hour devilish dungeon crawl for 1st-5th level characters


Temple of the Broken Prince is a self-contained adventure that scales cleanly for parties from 1st through 5th level. Removing a cursed sword from a demonic temple places the party in an uncomfortable alliance with a devil, who coerces them into helping him destroy the demon’s temple and seal a gate to the Abyss!

This adventure runs great as a convention-style one-shot, an introduction to Dungeons & Dragons for new players, or a few hours of quick, low-commitment roleplaying. Just roll up some level 1 characters, skim the document, and get adventuring!

It can also make a fun addition to your current long-running standard campaign or hexcrawl. It makes a great side quest, or an excellent way to introduce the Blood War between devils and demons to your players. Simply place the temple anywhere suitably remote that it wouldn’t have been explored yet. If you’re playing Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus, this adventure makes an excellent side-quest for your characters to encounter while wandering the barren wastes of Avernus.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • A 12-room dungeon with an original map
  • Classic-style puzzles, devilish allies, and a climactic final battle
  • Character motivations for both the allied and enemy NPCs
  • Rules for a sentient magic sword: Vilus Incarnatus
  • Stats for two new demons, a CR ½ hell bat and a creepy CR 1 ferthuran

Any chances of an Fantasy Grounds version?

We haven't had much time to devote to dungeon-making lately, so sadly I don't see us getting to a Fantasy Grounds adaptation any time soon.

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.
