The Terror of Darkness

Herein ye shall find the horrors of being trapped in darkness for centuries. Trapped under water for so long it has changed souls forever. Trapped in duties so old, some no longer recall who they are.

For those brave enough to travel deep down into the cold, wet darkness, where shadows flirt with death and spectres of the past seethe with revenge, a great secret awaits.

But is the secret worth dying for?

Only you can answer that question as you run The Tower of Drowned Shadows.

This is a D&D 5E adventure that should make a thrilling night of horrific entertainment.

Players discover a buried tower filled with water and undead.

Both roleplay and combat paths are possible.

The tower also poses a puzzle for cunning players.

This adventure also offers:

  • New magic item — Frostfinger
  • New monsters — the Drowned Specter and Drowned Shadow
  • New NPCs — Rhanes, Captain of the Guard and Slit, Leader of the Assassasin

This challenging adventure is suitable for Tier 1 play. But I've also included detailed instructions on how to level up encounters for CR 4, CR 8, and CR 12 play, including new Legendary actions and Lair Actions.

I've also added Designer Notes to help you have a very successful run.

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.
