The pirate captain known as Two-toed Twilly terrorized the Sword Coast for decades until she mysteriously disappeared, along with her crew and her wealth of accumulated treasure. When the party comes into possession of a long forgotten treasure map, the search for the legendary pirate ship the Gloomshade begins. Twilly was never one to easily surrender, and has assured that the ship and its hoard are guarded by a gauntlet of traps, obstacles, puzzles, and more! Does the party have what it takes to survive and claim the lost treasure?

Inspired by a popular movie from the 1980s, the Gloomies is a one-shot adventure sends the party on a treasure hunt the likes of which they've never been on before. The story takes the characters to an abandoned hideout, through booby-trapped tunnels, and towards the final resting place of Two-toed Twilly, her crew, and their legendary treasure.

This adventure includes:

  • An original one-shot adventure that scales for characters of all levels.
  • Six original maps (with VTT ready versions) including:
    • An abandoned tavern used as a hideout - Main floor and basement level.
    • Underground tunnels filled with traps, obstacles, and puzzles.
    • The Harp Puzzle room.
    • The lost pirate ship - Main deck and below deck.
  • An original treasure map handout for players.
  • Five magic items with a pirate / nautical theme.

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.
