The Great Trial: Christmas is a one-page adventure for four 2nd-level characters. It consists of a short hexcrawl designed specifically to challenge novice adventures. It features all pillars of D&D. 

The Great Trial

I released the first module back in February and in September, I released its sequel: The Great Trial Frostbite

These adventures are meant to test the players and their characters and take them to the edge of their skills.

Aenor Gleenwith, a powerful elven mage, started to build the first Trial after realizing that he hadn't left his mark in this world. So he wanted to enter the hall of legends besides Acererak and Halaster. He uses more experienced adventurers, often capturing them, to test the Trials for him. 

This time, he wanted something for beginners. Having heard about the horrors of a place called Ravenloft, he researched a way to make his Trial happen there. He found a hamlet called Sargor (which can be located in the setting of your preference), and sent the whole place to a tiny plane between the borders of the Ravenloft's Domains of Dread.


A 2nd-level dungeon for four players that should take 2 to 4 hours to run. You will find:

  • A high-quality PNG file with the adventure, containing:
    • The DM version of the map
    • Guidelines on how to run it
    • Mechanical descriptions of locations
    • Summarized background and ending
  • 3 high-quality maps:
    • DM version (2048x2048 res)
    • Player version (2048x2048 res)
    • Player version — Hexless

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.
