Rise Hero - Chapter One: Armalin's Arms Race


“Arm yourself for the Arms Race. Glory and pay in under a day!” - Ode to Armalin’s Arms Race.

Talking trees, brawls with bandits, riddles at bridges, fifteen-foot toxic mushrooms, and a towering gargoyle dragon are all encountered on this extraordinary quest for first level characters! Combined with the human element of a mother desperately trying to help her sick daughter, morality will be tested and glory awaits. Will your party be the first to find and deliver a Rainbow Rose to Armalin up the perilous Lowkur Trail? It must be done before nightfall and others are hot on the trail. After being cancelled for over thirty years, prepare yourselves for the official reinstatement of Armalin's Arms Race!

This module is meant to be an epic introduction to the adventuring life for your characters. With a combination of social interaction, exploration, and combat; there is something for everyone!

Encounters sneak peak:

  • Chris, the Awakened Pine guards over the Rainbow Rose. How will the party convince the talking tree to give it up?
  • A complex trap through mountainous mushrooms. Watch out for the spiders!
  • A deadly final battle with a gargoyle dragon that guards over Armalin's Tower.

Everything required to run the adventure is inside:

  • 4 custom encounter maps (one with an A and B side)
  • Magic items, including 2 custom ones.
  • Statblocks for all NPCs and Creatures.

Rise Hero is a setting agnostic series of adventures designed to be used as a foundation to build your own world or to plug right into the campaign you're creating. These adventures take your players through the early levels of their journey where they answer the fundamental adventurer’s call: rise, hero. The tone of the series is reminiscent to that of classic Western fairytales. Welcome to Chapter One: Armalin’s Arms Race, a first level adventure.

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.
