The Carnival of Faces

Multiple File Formats

Untangle the secret of a mysterious festival in this adventure for the world’s greatest roleplaying game…

In a cozy valley atop an ancient hot spring somewhere in the Forgotten Realms lies a queer little town called Sleetgap. Fog rises from the canals that line the streets, and townsfolk spend each year preparing for a local festival called the Carnival of Faces. Ancient traditions bring the streets to life with food, games, and colorful masks on every citizen. It is certainly an event not to be missed.

This year, however, a strange spell has befallen the town, and something sinister lurks in the fog. Players will descend into the town’s ancient history to uncover dark forces at work and, with cunning, bravery, and a bit of luck, restore the town to safety in the hands of its patron deities. And, hopefully, find time to enjoy themselves at the Carnival along the way...

The Carnival of Faces is a 6-10 hour adventure for characters of 3rd level. It is set in the Forgotten Realms and can be played on its own or easily fit into any wider location in this setting. This adventure includes:

  • 3 chapters of mystery, magic, and superstition in a brand-new location, featuring unique maps and NPCs!

  • Custom rules for Moonstones, an in-character dice game that makes use of the PCs’ skills and abilities!

  • 3 fascinating monsters inspired by the mysterious Plane of Mirrors: the mirror mephit, the mercury ooze, and the lurking glass!

  • A d100 table of random Carnival masks for any character hoping to attend the festivities!

The PDF download of this adventure contains both a stylized document and a simplified document, which is tagged and screen-reader tested for accessibility.

This adventure was written during July 2021 for Storytelling Collective’s “Write Your First Adventure” workshop.

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.
