Thordin Battleaxe's Tome of Adventure

Suggested Price $5.00

Blackened husks and large piles of rubble are all that remain of most of the Village of Norad. Thin wisps of smoke rise from the few structures that managed to withstand the orc attack. Scragg the Wicked, Orc General, and follower of Krusk the Devourer, raided the village last night. Some dwarves have been taken captive. Many more died defending the village. Who will bring this vile creature to justice?

Thordin Battleaxe's Tome of Adventure

--- After just one day this book became a copper best-selling product and had over 600 downloads (and counting)!!! ---

This unique book is specifically designed for brand new DMs (and players). It consists of a fully fleshed out one-shot adventure, for level 3 characters, that would take 3 or 4 hours to play through. It includes everything that a brand new DM needs to run the adventure, even if you don’t have the Player’s Handbook or Monster Manual (well nearly everything, you’ll need to get your own friends).

The book is brimming full of advice to help brand new DMs run, not only the adventure in this book but also any other adventure they might want to DM in the future. This advice covers a broad range of topics, from making effective adventure hooks to explaining rules, and a brief but informative guide to running combat encounters.

The book also includes 5 premade character sheets, fantastic artwork, all the monster stat blocks you will need to run the adventure, and beautiful, full-color battlemaps for every combat encounter.

During the adventure, the characters will track the orcs that raided Norad along a dangerous mountain pass. They will eventually discover the orc camp in Silverstone Mine and will have to figure out how best to overcome the orc defenses. The challenges they will face throughout the adventure can be overcome in a variety of ways from your classic hack and slash, to clever negotiating and alliance making.

Despite the hard work and effort that went into making this book, it is free. This is because D&D is a game that I love and want to share with more people (I genuinely believe everyone can enjoy this game). However, D&D can be expensive to get into. That’s why I decided to make a high-quality adventure that anyone can play with their friends completely for free!

While the book is free, if you enjoyed the adventure and found the book helpful and would like to support me, buying the adventure is extremely helpful to me. Even if you just buy it for as low as 0.20$ it helps contribute to making this product a bestseller! Also please consider leaving a rating and a review! It really helps me out. Also, why not check out my other work?

Murder on the Primewater Pleasure – A murder mystery that takes place entirely onboard a ship (4th level characters).

The Madman Behind the Pews - A horror adventure that where the characters must investigate a haunted church and fight a strange evil (5th level)

The Horrors beneath Hopen’er Asylum – A horror adventure that takes place in and below an old mental asylum (6th – 7th level characters).

Hi, loving this. However on page 11, the notes from Thordin cover up two important pieces, including one blue text I'm supposed to read outloud. As a new DM, this makes me nervous! Could you please post the missing pieces of info from page 11?

Hey there! Thank you for your comment. Very sorry about the problem, it was caused by a slight editing error that I must have missed. The product has been updated since then, if you go back to the download files and re-download the adventure pdf (it's under the same name title as before), this problem has been fixed! Let me know if you have any more questions and again I'm very sorry for the confusion!

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.
