The Rat King's Castle - A Guild of the Smouldering Bowl Adventure

Suggested Price $3.00

"Some call it a Meatgrinder, we call it Home." The Rat King's Castle is Guild of the Smouldering Bowl headquarters, and can be found inside a magical patchwork sack in the manager's office of their Pub & Pipeweed Lounge in Waterdeep. Over the years, the Guild has adopted goblins, kobold, a nothic, a few mindwitnesses, swarms of cranium rats, a silver dragon and more... adding traps, defenses and homey touches across the castle and turning it into a dungeon worthy of plunder to any adventuring crew that doesn't have qualms with killing a few kobold schoolkids to make a dollar.

This dungeon springs from five years of campaigning with a large, rotating cast of players at our Sunday Sessions table and thanks to their smalljammer, could be encountered anywhere across the planes. The players have adventured through a few of the cornerstone DnD modules including Hoard of the Dragon Queen, Tomb of Annihilation, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist & Dungeon of the Mad Mage; as such their treasure hoard is fairly impressive. As the Guild of the Smouldering Bowl isnt really a group of villains and just look monstrous, they are potential allies of your player characters, even if your party first tries to roll through guns-a-blazing.

A re-delveable dungeon presented with two ways to play, building right off of the action in The Delirious Misadventures of Derilia, the Dearthspawn vol 1.

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.
