The Spawning Pools

The Spawning Pools


The Spawning Pools is a dungeon and mini-adventure set within a network of underground tunnels that have been taken over as the spawning pools for a hive of slaadi.

The characters are drawn into the Spawning Pools after being captured by the slaadi for some sort of reason (DM's discretion) and implanted with a slaad tadpole which will gestate and hatch within 2d12 hours and if that happens they die and become another slaad in this hive.

Upon waking, the characters must not only find a way out of the Spawning Pools alive, but also find a way to relieve themselves of these tadpoles before their time runs out.

This mini-adventure and dungeon is built for a party of four to six characters of 8th level.


The Spawning Pools can take place in any setting in a large, undergrounded flooded cave system. The adventure begins with the characters waking up in this cave system with new, powerful slaad tadpoles already gestating inside of them.

This is built as an adventure to be dropped into an ongoing campaign at any time.

With this adventure you get:

  • A 6-page adventure/dungeon for a party of four to six adventurers of 8th level.
  • A new variant of slaad such as the Greater Slaad, Greater Slaad tadpoles, and new born slaad.
  • A ZIP folder containing a map of the cave system for both players and the Dungeon Master.

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.
