D&D Solo Adventure: Caught In A Wizard's Web

D&D Solo Adventure: Caught In A Wizard's Web


5e Solo Gamebooks presents Caught In A Wizard’s Web, the sixth gamebook-style adventure in this series, set in the Forgotten Realms. This adventure is designed for a solo level 6 PC of any race or class, and is playable without a dungeon master. A multi-choice narrative guides you through this adventure. This series of adventures (which began with Death Knight’s Squire) is inspired by the format of the original “Red Box” solo adventure, as well as the Lone Wolf and Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks.

This adventure sees you journeying across many different landscapes and environments, and facing many different enemies as you try to outwit a devious mage whose machinations throw you into peril at every turn. To reveal the story behind it would be spoiling the discovery that will happen organically within the adventure, but suffice to say your PC will be tested to the utmost. It is recommended that you play through at least one of our other adventures (possibly the one prior to this, Drums at Daggerford) so that your PC has a chance to pick up some useful items and a bit of gold, before embarking on this brutal gauntlet of a quest!

Playtesters have reported logging up to 12 hours of play with this module, and there is huge scope for replayability as you choose from a variety of routes through the quest. Clocking in at just under 700 entries (not including Area and Location descriptions and Combat Sheets), Caught In A Wizard’s Web is easily the largest quest in this series to date. Never before have we worked so many different environs into one adventure. Using an interactive pdf, you click on hyperlinked entries which guide you through the adventure, maintaining a high level of immersion in the quest. 

The beauty of this adventure is its replayability, as there are nigh-countless ways to progress the half dozen or so environments, wide variety of creature encounters, and immersive narrative. What’s more is it remedies the all too oft forgotten exploration pillar in most adventure modules. So sharpen your blades, string your bow, study your spells, and pick up a sidekick because Paul Bimler’s latest adventure is as challenging as it is enjoyable.

Paul Bimler’s newest addition to an impressive publishing collection is certainly a challenge, but for all the right reasons. The adventure combines the best parts of the old Choose Your Own Adventure books with Dungeons and Dragons, adding a stunning original story and a sandbox setting you can adventure in multiple times and in different ways. The fights take not only character power but a good bit of strategy and a healthy bit of luck (of which I often found myself in short supply) to get through. If you enjoy a challenge, this is a good place for your mid-tier character to find it. It is a worthy addition to your collection, either to the story-line laid out in his earlier works or as a stand-alone adventure.

Another fantastic and refreshing adventure awaits you! And what a ride! Wastelands, woods, desert, mountain, swamps, sea, dungeons, everything there wants you dead or for dinner. Will you be up to the task?

Many players have enjoyed running their characters through these quests, and the adventures are structured in such a way that any build - even balanced homebrew classes - will be tested to the limit of their capabilities. There are enemies to best in combat, skill challenges, magic items, puzzles, codewords, banes and boons, and a variety of other things to keep your character busy as they battle their way towards victory. 

Not only is this adventure ideal for solo players, but the conversion tools included at the back of the book allow you to adjust the adventure for parties of up to four adventurers. Theoretically, a dungeon master could run this as a mini-campaign over several sessions. 

Unlike previous product pages, the author is hesitant to reveal too much about the story of this quest, to preserve the element of discovery which you will experience as soon as you turn to Entry 1!

So roll up a level 6 character and get adventuring! And please check out the other adventures in this series.

Absolutely amazing and I loved every moment of it. I just spent the last 24 hours completing the whole adventure and I got to say you have improved on everything you have done before. I love this series and can't wait for the next book.

Very glad to see this release. Enjoyed the others in this series. Is there any ETA on the Fantasy Grounds VTT version?

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.
