Tales of Dead Men


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

Tales of Dead Men is a one-shot adventure for characters of all levels in 5e. Tales focuses on Exploration and Social encounters, two under-utilized pillars in 5th edition. While there is opportunity for combat, this is not the focus, and can, in fact, be avoided entirely.

While the adventure can be run at any level, it works best for characters around 5th-7th level. It also fits perfectly into a Ghosts of Saltmarsh campaign.

For years the Lizardfolk of Merdelain have lived in peace with the peoples of the Sword Coast. For years, they have avoided contact, interacting only through intermediaries. For years, this has been enough.

War is starting. The reasons why are not entirely clear, even to those stirring the pot. That doesn’t matter. It doesn’t change much. The result is the same.

Some enemies can’t be killed. How do you stop a war fueled by pride? By the desire to be remembered fondly?  A crime has been committed. The only question that remains is: is it too late to prevent bloodshed?

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.
