The Ring of McGuffin


A puzzling hunt for a generic magic item

Deep inside the old wizard's tower lies an artefact of great power. You know: The kind of artefact the whole campaign hinges upon. Explore the eight levels of the building, fight some unwanted occupiers, find secrets and treasures, and get out in time.

A one session adventure for characters of any level or
a drop-in in any campaign in need to retrieve a magical item for plot reasons

8 tower levels, multiple ways to approach, secret doors and a magical trap as a twisted final act. Little combat, lots of loot, some puzzles and two hook-setups for your campaign.

8 PDF-pages including two random tables for loot for all four game tiers, JPG-map in color and printerfriendly b/w. Standard monsters only, no "24 new monsters, have fun typing those stat blocks into your battle tracker".

Map dimensions: 116x23 squares

6 files:

  • 1 8-page PDF adventure
  • 1 8-page PDF maps (single page, color, gridless)
  • 4 JPGs of the map (color/bw, gridded/gridless)

Hello William,

thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. The included documents are fixed by now.
I identified the cause for the issue and will avoid it in the future when updating files.

The map JPGs comes up as too small to see any details. If you enlarge it, it does not print well. Can you format it to be one map per page? Or explain how to format the print so it is one map per page?

Hi, I cannot reproduce the error. I just downloaded the files again from my library and get the big versions. I had two small thumbnails attached to the product listing which I just removed to avoid confusion.
The map is 116x23 squares (times 5 for feet) so a single level won't fit on a page, given 1 inch per square. I'll push an update shortly with a PDF with single levels.
Could you please re-download the maps from your library and confirm that the files there are proper sized?

Publisher Stock #
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.
