Arid Ruin

Suggested Price $3.00


A blight. A swarm of locust. A lonely border town is seeking aid to curtail these foreboding events. All signs point to a recently unearthed ruin in the middle of the desert. It has been dubbed ‘The Arid Ruin’. Can the party trek across the scorching and inhospitable desert to brave the trials within and end the source of the curse? Or will they succumb to the horrors inside and allow those denizens to plague the world around it?

This adventure is a desert theme with Egyptian and Githyanki elements and a few nods to other iconic bits of pop culture. Players will be able to explore the ruins and attempt to glean who the previous occupants were.

 This adventure is estimated to last 3 – 5 sessions for a party from level 4 to 6.

Included with this adventure are:

  • Detailed events of 7 traveling days in a desert
  • 3 dungeon maps
  • 3 modified stat blocks of iconic creatures to spice up the encounter
  • 7 new magical items
  • 1 new ridiculous spell to make sure 'that friend' doesn’t get left out
  • Half a dozen new ways to deceive and maim your players

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.
