Warning: Danger Not to Scale

Watermarked PDF

Duchess Alexa von Hildebrande has gone missing, and her husband, the Duke of Ashford’s Watch, wants someone to quietly look into the matter.   She hasn’t been seen since an explosion rocked her laboratory, and the duke fears the worst may have happened.  As the region’s fragile peace depends on the tenuous marriage between Alexa and the duke, the people of Ashford’s Watch are anxious to have her returned safely to them.

Take your players on a journey in miniature as they uncover the mystery behind the local duchess and wizard-inventor Alexa von Hildebrande’s recent disappearance. Suitable as an opening adventure to a larger campaign module for three to five 1st-level characters, your players will will engage mice warriors, deal with shamanistic frog priests, and battle an assortment of ferocious garden pests from fire beetles and house spiders to mockingbirds and garden lizards, all while being shrunk to only 3 inches tall.  

Sample Page with map and encounter

As the Dungeon Master, you should be familiar with the basic rules and have a copy of the “Player’sHandbook” or “Player’s Basic Rules” handy to help run this adventure. While useful, the “DUNGEON MASTER’S Guide” and “Monster Manual” are not necessary to run this module – all new monster, npc, and item stats are provided.

While “Warning: Danger Not To Scale” is written for three to five 1st-level characters, it can be adjusted easily for groups of different sizes or power levels. Notes for possible changes are included in-line for some encounters. The adventure module is also written with the 5th edition ruleset of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS in mind, but it can be adapted to fit any d20-style campaign. Any notes regarding adaptation to a different system are marked in-line where appropriate. Multiple possible intro hooks are provided (with options based on current player level and experience), as well as a few thoughts for continuing after the module is completed, with branches based on the players' ultimate success.

Maps and illustrations are included in the booklet for the all the main characters and explorable areas. Additional black and white copies of the maps as individual files are available in a separate .zip download as well.

Combat encounters include enemy tactics, unique setups for each, and detailed enemy descriptions. While there are several opportunities for combat, the module does place an emphasis on the investigative abilities of your players and rewards groups more inclined towards roleplaying.

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.
