The Legend of Sleepy Hollow



A literary classic by Washington Irving — warped — for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.


The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is an adventure in storytelling suitable for beginning players and is set in the world of Eberron for Dungeons & Dragons.

A schoolmaster vanishes in an isolated farming community in the Towering Wood of the Eldeen Reaches, while an ages-old curse is reawakened and an enchanted forest burns under the hooves of nightmare.

Investigators from University of Wynarn in neighboring Aundair are dispatched to probe the mysterious disappearance of their Wynarn fellow and are confronted by rustic superstitions, surrealistic landscapes, and the Ghost Rider of Sleepy Hollow — a terrible spirit unbridled from the grave and wreaking havoc on the hidden vale’s harvest.

Intrigue, dalliance, and murder abound in the remote village on the fringe of the Twilight Demesne, where twisted orchards laden with silver apples and drowsy fields of dreamlily veil the horrifying secrets of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Traveling by airship to the druidic redoubt of Greenheart in the hinterlands of the Eldeen Reaches and under guide to a remote village on the fringes of the Twilight Demesne, investigators have been charged with untangling a web of sorted truths and puzzling out the mysterious disappearance of a beloved schoolmaster.

Through dreary hanging gardens, scorched fields of dreamlily, and gossamer faerie fog, adventurers 4 explore the dreamy vale of Sleepy Hollow until their investigation collides with a terrible specter born aloft on a ghostly steed.

Expose guile and treachery, search for the girl and the ghost mushrooms, and eavesdrop on suspects at The Grinning Plowman and Van Tassel Manorhaüs to solve the mystery.

Only the most determined adventurers can break the curse that haunts the secluded farming village and reveal the dark secrets of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is an adventure suited for 1st level adventurers and is set in the Eldeen Reaches of Khorvaire in the world of Eberron.

Hi! This adventure can be played in two sessions; one to launch adventure and solve the disappearance of Ichabod ir’Crane, and one to solve mystery of Ghost Rider and confront the spirit in the netherworld. One lengthier session with a nice intermission is also suitable and great fun!

What level(s) was this adventure written for? I’d love to spin this into my campaign this weekend!

Hi James, it's a Tier 1, level 1 adventure that should, through social interaction, adventure, and combat, get a party to 3rd level to face the Ghost Rider. Cheers!

Is there a chance to get a better preview? There is currently just 14 pages of maps, and no writing sample at all.

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.
