REAL DUNGEONS No 1. The Buried Palace


Real Dungeons #1 – The Buried Palace

One Shot Adventure

From the author of the best selling Libraries Illuminated Series

Heavy spring rains have collapsed a section of the crypts beneath Saint Thessalon's monastery. During repairs, the monks broke through into a buried ruin. A monster attacked from the darkness, killing a young cleric and dragging off the body. The task was straightforward: kill the beast and claim the reward. Except the past has a way of intruding into the present and things are not always what they seem.

 The mysterious ruins are the remains of the once beautiful summer palace, East Bright, belonging to Queen Cara. 400 years ago, a cleric named Thessalon and his violent followers overthrew the queen. He cursed the young queen for her defiance and walled Cara up inside the remains of the palace.

Now, there is a chance to end the curse and free Cara from the darkness. Yet more than one force from the past is waiting for release. Ending the Curse will bring the adventurers face to face with the corrupted remains of Thessalon himself.

The Buried Palace is designed for a group of player-characters averaging at 3rd or 4th-level of ability, though the challenge rating can be scaled up or down.

I ran this with my group last weekend and had a good time with it. I especially like how it started off looking like a typical bounty mission but turned into something deeper. The final fight was a little touch and go but they pulled it off. Great fun. [...]

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.
