Lake of Secrets


Dive into a mystery in Lake of Secrets, a darker magic fantasy compatible with any setting.

When the sovereign of a war-stricken kingdom goes missing, characters must brave the castle dungeons to find them. Death stalks the dungeon walls and dark deeds come to light as the characters uncover the story of a terrible sacrifice.

Designed as a 3-4 hour adventure for 1-6 players of 3rd-5th level, Lake of Secrets is a fresh narrative that explores themes of false promise and isolation, offering characters a choice that will decide the fate of an entire realm.

What's inside?

  • A black and white printer-friendly PDF
  • Six full-color tokens for online play
  • High-resolution original artwork of NPCs and magic items
  • Two maps marked with areas of interest

Throughout the adventure, you can find tips on how to run it for individuals and smaller groups, as well as ways to make it even more challenging. There are a variety of possible endings that appeal to characters of different alignments.

This is in the VTT category. Does it also come with a Fantasy Grounds module?

Hi Rob - it does not come with a Fantasy Grounds module. I apologize for the inconvenience and I've removed it from the Virtual Tabletop category.

Though if you use Roll20 or a similar platform, it includes tokens and maps.

As of right now, I'm working on a Fantasy Grounds module! That will go up in the next couple of weeks or so.

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.
