[SPOILERS AHEAD] What your players will experience in The Flying Flame

A Time Heist

Preventing the Great War of Dragonkind is only possible by altering key moments in time that brought about this war that was started by Balagos, one of the most famous dragons in all Faerûn. Have your players get sent back in time by Bahamut himself.

Combat Puzzles

Before the characters are sent into each moment in time, they are given a description and map of the scenario. Encounters are not about just knocking your enemies unconscious, but about accomplishing key objectives to move the story forward. The catch is that they can only be sent back in time for 24 seconds! Your players will have to outwit and outplay the NPCs in an adventure that rewards out of the box strategies.

Branching Narrative

The success of the characters in handling one moment in time affects what happens when they are sent into the other. This gives your players a chance to experience different outcomes when playing this adventure.

About the author: Brian’s love for the world of D&D started in 2000 with the PC game Baldur’s Gate, countless RA Salvatore novels about Drizzt and the companions, and naturally Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn. He started playing and running games for 5e in 2020. He enjoys running adventures with consequential player choices, a tight connected story, and a chance to learn more about the lore in D&D.

His first set of adventures, The Thin Veil Trilogy, involved reading more than 500 pages of materials from older editions to make sure that the way Planar Bleed and Planar Metaphysics, the Shadowfell, and Vecna were described were true to lore. Researching and finding ways to inject life into older stories is something he very much enjoys

This was a great adventure. While I'm usually not a fan of adventures that is mostly combat this adventure makes the fights interesting in the goals that it gives the players. Even better it's written where any DM can run the adventur [...]

I enjoyed this adventure on both sides of the table. As a player, the combat encounters were fun and challenging. The victory conditions encourage tactical thinking instead of just hitting everything until they die. As a DM, the succinct writing and co [...]

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.
