PA1 Vault of the Faceless Giants


This module includes several encounters that use mechanics and content from Old School Adventures™ Accessory PX1: Basic Psionics Handbook. Additionally, many of the encounters will be made more enjoyable by having a character of the mystic class in the party. If you do not plan to use the material from the Basic Psionics Handbook, some of the encounters may require modifications in order to facilitate playability. 


Centuries ago, a temple set in the side of a cliff a few miles northwest of the village of Phoumi Sramol acted as the center of worship for evil adherents to the demon lord Rahb. During this time, livestock died, villagers disappeared, and plagues befell the area. Locals believed this was all done in service of bringing Rahb into the physical world from his Abyssal home—an island fortress known as Lanku.

Suddenly, however, all of the evil and suspicious activity around the temple ceased. Legend holds it was the great adventurer Somnang who brought an end to the evil plaguing the area, though one is never really sure with such stories retold over generations.

Now, hundreds of years later, an occurrence in the village has the locals questioning whether or not the evil is returning.

A local woman, Kanya, claims her baby was snatched from her hands in the middle of the night by followers of Rahb, dressed in loin cloths, their faces painted to resemble the many-faced demon lord.

The chief dismisses the temple’s relationship to the missing child. He suggests instead the woman “lost” the baby and that her strange tale of men in the night is pure fabrication.

If the woman is telling the truth, then there is much to be feared, and her story bears investigating—not just for the sake of the woman and the community, but for the sake of a world where this kind of evil can exist.

Will you have a print version of this available on completion (for that matter, will the Psionics book get a print version)?

Yes and yes. We've been making some minor tweaks to the Basic Psionics Handbook to prepare it for print (some tweaks to illustration resolution, and some very minor type consistency issues). Hoping to have it ready before Thanksgiving. The adventure will be getting some playtesting over the Thanksgiving holiday, and hopefully won't be too long behind the BPH as far as its print release goes.

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.
