Death is Only the Beginning? - Level 3 Mini Adventure

Suggested Price $0.99

Death is Only the Beginning? is a Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition mini-adventure by Midnight Tower.
It is designed for a group of three to five 3rd-level characters, but the DM can easily replace encounters to suit characters of any level.

The adventure can be played as a one-shot episode or as a side quest to the Hunter’s Full Moon trilogy.

Total party kill. Everyone died.

However, this time death is only the beginning. The adventurers are brought back from the other side as undead creatures by an evil necromancer.
Escape the dungeon, fight the other undead experiments, and find your maker!

You can sharpen your blade. You can prepare your spells. But can you return from the dead?

➛ Mini-adventure featuring the player characters as undead monsters
➛ Full colour maps for print and VTT (+ Tokens)
➛ Tweaked monster: Necromancer NPC
➛ Seven pages of content
➛ Original art and illustrations of high quality

Hi, on page two the White Towers are introduced. I asked myself where they are on the map. Are they like little watchtowers that are dispersed throughout the whole landscape in big numbers?

Hi Nikolai! :) The towers aren't marked on the map (yet!), but there are about 10-15 of these towers scattered around Eastern Farraway. Many of the towers are derelict and in ruins but some of them have been converted for other uses, such as watchtowers and hideaways.

Hi Tove, thanks for the information. I am excited for the "yet" :D
Just got the notification for "Secrets of the Drow Trilogy" on Kickstarter and I am very excited. I am starting a campaign with my friends.
I will be the DM and we will start with the Hunter’s Full Moon Trilogy, so maybe I will have the Drow Trilogy in book form when we get there :D

That sounds absolutely brilliant, thanks for joining in!! :D We're super excited to revamp the trilogy and turn it into a book - we've been wanting to do it for a long time. Hope you and your group will like it! :)

Hi! Some months ago I DMed this one shot and really enjoyed it. I took the liberty to make new maps for it which are available for free here:
I also included Virtual tabletop ready exports which can be helpful. Please let me know if I should remove the published maps. All the best and thanks for the adventure!

Hey there! I downloaded your maps on Friday, then just today ran back across them in my download folder. I had a merry adventure trying to figure out what they were because they downloaded as .txt files. Anyway I did figure it out, but you might want to check that Patreon didn't switch them to the .txt extension. Now, it MIGHT be that my Linux system / browser detected that it was a text type file and renamed it.. but I don't think so. I think most probably Patreons server detected it as a text type file and renamed it.

Cool maps, well done. :)

On page 6, one of Heldrian's cantrips is "predications," but I cannot find this spell anywhere. Is it a typo? Am I looking in the wrong place?

Hi! Ooops, that's a typo - it's meant to be Prestidigitation. Sorry! And thanks for catching 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.
