Pioneer's Path To Port Luxus: A Rival To Waterdeep!!


Dungeon Masters of the world, have you ever thrown a dragon at your party and found the resulting combat to be repetitive slugfest? Has your game of Dungeons & Dragons been reduced to a dull series of dice rolls resulting in "Hit" or "Miss"? Or conversely, is your dragon way too powerful, forcing you to make it weaker or risk a TPK? Would you like to spice up your dragon encounters with a little more personality? Would you like your dragons to be long-term threats whose actions have far-reaching consequences? Would you like to give your players more choices in what they want to do?

Then this is just for you. I present to you, 'Pioneer's Path to Port Luxus', A city based adventure featuring an Ancient Green Dragon that will leave a lasting and memorable impression in your campaign.

The coastal city of *Port Luxus*, a true rival to Waterdeep, was founded fifty years ago at the site of a great volcanic eruption. Miners and prospectors first came to this area to dig up the precious veins of ore and minerals that were deposited. It wasn't long before crafters and traders followed to capitalise on the discovery, and Port Luxus was born.

After a period of peace and prosperity, the port is now plagued with several problems: sunken trade ships, petty politics, smuggling of dangerous goods, black market trading, crazy cults and an Ancient Green Dragon called *Viridax* who is behind all the recent troubles.

Viridax represents raw desire pushed to the extreme, and covets what she desires to the extreme. She may lack in power, but she makes up for it with her charm and charismatic presence.

She is a powerful primordial creature who can warp her surroundings to suit her needs. Due to her deep connection with forests, Viridax has become a powerful Archdruid of the forest. But she is less interested in maintaining the balance of nature, and focussed on bending and reshaping the forest and its creatures such as Kobolds, Lizardfolk, Trolls and Hill Giants to her will.

Most dragons take on servants or slaves, but Viridax especially likes to play and torment her subjects psychologically, deriving pleasure from their suffering.

Viridax has lived a long and glorius life spanning several centuries, and in all this time she has become a skilled manipulator who is able to attain anything she desires.

This campaign setting and adventure is intended for four to six characters, taking them all the way from level 1 to level 11.

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.
