(5E) Never Ask Directions - 5th edition compatible

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.95

When the party finds themselves lost and unable to locate their next adventure, this sidetrek introduces the halfling Carum Half-hand who is all too eager to point them in the right direction. And that direction follows an agenda of his own...

This short 12-page sidetrek is compatible with the 5th (and earlier "classic") editions of Dungeons & Dragons. It is intended for a party of 5 characters (levels 2 - 4) and can be incorporated into any setting. Each encounter features a tactical map and the necessary stat blocks for all creatures involved, so no rulebook page-flipping.

A quick and easy plug-in piece for when the party has strayed too far from their initial quest, Never Ask Directions can fill in the "blank spaces" on your campaign map when the party goes right when they should have headed left.

This product includes a second file: a printer-friendly version of the adventure that strips out the backgrounds to spare your ink/toner cartridges.

I needed a short low level adventure for my group to allow time to pass and this worked perfectly. The campaign is well detailed with its own maps, stat blocks are provided for the bandits and rewards are appropriate for level 2 and 3s. It is a [...]

I made some minor thematic adjustments to fit this into the campaign, and some minor difficulty adjustments to fit my level 7 party. They loved it, and Carrum has now become a recurring NPC. Thank you. [...]

Great content, I ran through the adventure and didn't find anything broken or any missing information or details that didn't make any sense. Usually I run into a couple things like that in descriptions of areas or enemies. The players enjoyed investiga [...]

Very well done, with enough detail to make it easy to run with minimal prep - what I look for in one-shots. Also the first D&D story I've run - my wife usually handles the D&D duties. I will be getting more of their stuff. [...]

For what it is, this is a nice little encounter, very suitable for dropping in as a session or two. A fun roleplaying possibility and good "episode" for low-level characters. [...]

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.
