NB1 - Echoes of the Night Below Adventure


NB1 - Echoes of the Night Below - Part I of the Night Ascendant Saga

Grab your sword and backpack and get ready for a wild ride. The path ahead promises difficult challenges, unexpected dangers, and a growing horror lurking in the eternal darkness beneath the world.

In 1995, the original Night Below boxed set pitted adventurers against some of the most dangerous and iconic monsters ever to populate the Underdark. Piece by piece, the characters followed the clues until they discovered a vast and far-reaching scheme to dominate all surface dwellers.

This adventure returns fifty years after events in the original and serves as the first entry in a multi-part saga. An all-new generation of adventurers has the opportunity and challenge to face the most powerful and insidious monsters found in the D&D universe.

This is a brand new adventure saga that stands on its own and takes full advantage of the fifth edition rules. Herein you’ll find old favorite NPCs and storylines, but you’ll also encounter new plots and schemes, strange new monsters, and a mystery in need of solving before time runs out.

Keep your wits about you, ready your swords and spells and hope for a dash of luck seeking your fortune among the Echoes of the Night Below.

So what about NB2? Any news about continuing the series? Or an PoD option?

Does this provide the Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, and Mystara customization options found in the original boxed set?

It does not. It assumes the sort of "generic" area of Haranshire still, which you can place in any setting of your choosing.

Thanks for the quick reply. That was one of my favorite aspects of the original, so I figured I'd ask.

How likely is it that the full adventure will be compiled into one product after all parts are released? If it's something you're considering, are you thinking about a PoD option for the compilation?

We are trying to get each of these in a PoD book, as well as a compiled hardcover. But that will require the DMsGuild to grant us that ability.

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.
