Inside Slanty Tower

Inside Slanty Tower

ZIP File


One never quite knows what to expect when they enter the Feywild. When a hot air balloon flies across the sky and crashes into a tower tipping in the swampy ground, even the most epic heroes may wonder, “What in the world is going on?” In order to get to the bottom of it all, the heroes must first reach the top of Slanty Tower and save a faerie dragon knight with vital information about Prismeer. Will the heroes find a way to save him or lose themselves in the swamp?

A Wild Beyond the Witchlight Adventure - What's this all About?

Chapter 2: Hither is the first portion of Prismeer described in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight. Each of the locations presented in this chapter can be explored quickly, outside of the village of Downfall. This is because the book tends to favor non-combat resolutions to encounters and these locations do not have maps to explore. This mini-adventure aims to revise the Slanty Tower location in order to create a small “dungeon” experience where characters can engage in some tactical combat (or find clever ways to avoid it). 

The book describes Slanty Tower as a leaning tower that is 50 feet tall and 20 feet in diameter and contains nothing but a spiraling set of stairs. This adventure creates a whimsical interior and story for the tower so the characters may engage more deeply with the location. This supplement presents the events that occur in Slanty Tower as an alternative to those detailed in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight. As always, it is up to you how much of the content you want to use. It’s perfectly fine to use some parts of this supplement while discarding others, or simply let the ideas presented here inspire new ideas of your own. This supplement assumes a party of 4-6 characters of 2nd level and presents scaling options for parties up to 4th level.

This Adventure Includes:

  • Expanded Adventure in Hither. Take Slanty Tower from a quick hello, to a fully fleshed out, memorable location.
  • Color VTT-Ready Interior Maps. Explore the interior of the four floors of Slanty Tower.
  • A New NPC. Meet or fight Elmer, the cursed hobgoblin turned ettercap.

Adventure Summary

The party arrives at Slanty Tower after seeing a balloon crash. When Sir Talavar calls down to the party, he is snatched up by Elmer the ettercap, and brought into Slanty Tower. On the first floor of the tower, the party encounters a trap set by Elmer to deal with thieving harengons. On the second floor, the party encounters Elmer’s dog, Wover. On the third floor, the party finds important information pertaining to Elmer’s history and the o'-wells. On the fourth floor, the party encounters Elmer and must reason or fight with him to rescue Sir Talavar.

Hello, first may I say love the adventure but I noticed in area s1 it says characters within the area marked A are effected by the trap. But I do not see an area marked A.

Thanks for the bug report Ronald! It looks like I put a 'T' for 'trap' instead of 'A' for 'acid' on the map on page 4. I'll revise the text in the update today to reference the 'T' instead.

Oops. I misremembered and I see the issue now. Adding an 'A' area on the map on page to depict the area of the acid spray. Thanks again. :)

Don't suppose this will be converted to Fantasy Grounds in the near future? :)

My group just started the carnival, so they might be getting to Prismeer in 2-3 weeks from now? Very interested in expanding all the locations of Hither. I like the RP aspect to the adventure, but I know my group will be itching to whack something in combat, too.

Okay we’re working on it. My guess is we’ll be done not this weekend but the next one. There may also be a follow up hither adventure by that time. :-)

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.
