The Game of Chumanchi


The Game of Chumanchi

Faintly you hear the sound of jungle drums, quiet at first, then growing louder and louder. Coming out into a clearing you find yourself standing before a mysterious mansion, out of it's time and wholly unusual. In front of you is a sign, pointing up the garden path of the well kept lawns saying:
“Chumanchi awaits, dare you play?”*


This module is a one-shot adventure that will see the party through the trials of Chumanchi, a mansion filled with skill challenges and combat encounters designed to test your party and wear them down before encountering Chumanchi the Lich. Each room of the mansion contains a different challenge.

To get through the house, instead of moving from room to room the characters must roll 2d6, when they do they are transported that many number of rooms to the next challenge. The aim is to get to the hidden chamber in the centre of the house. If one were to imagine the mansion like a boardgame, with each room being the indivicual "spaces", it is not too dissimilar.

This adventure works as a standalone one-shot or can be worked into an existing campaign to serve as a test, initiation, or simply a random encounter. The out of the box version of this adventure is for level 10 players, but it can be tweaked to be played at any level by adjusting the CR of the combat encounters and skill DC of the challenges, which will be covered in this guide. The adventure has been tested from levels 5-17.

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.
