Legendary Adventures

DeepDark Designs proudly presents Legendary Adventures.

This series is intended to provide an accessible and versatile resource for game masters on a budget and with limited preparation time, or those simply looking for inspiration and new ideas. Each Legendary Adventure is compatible with the fifth edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game–also sometimes known as OGL 5e rulesetand offers game masters captivating adventuring materials, plenty of new rules options, and much more besides.

This is the 5th Legendary Adventure released to date, and is called Harrowing Heights.

Harrowing Heights

Weighing in at 112-pages, Legendary Adventures: Harrowing Heights offers game masters a thrilling 46-page adventure, 25 pages of introductory materials, and 40 jam-packed pages of appendices bursting with new and original ideas.

The adventure is suitable for 3-5 players of 1st to 5th-level and should easily last a group 6-12 sessions, depending on the duration of each. In addition to this, the introductory materials provide key information on the adventure's background, as well as adding geographical context, lore, and other flourishes which both helps set the scene for the action that follows and grounds the players in the narrative. Meanwhile, the appendices add 26 new varieties of kobolds and drakes, 17 bespoke, adventure-specific NPCs, and 24 fun, original magic items. Best of all, Harrowing Heights has been lovingly illustrated with full-colour artwork and mapping throughout.

Legendary Adventures: Harrowing Heights is available in both digital and physical print editions. The module's digital files are also provided in a multitude of formats for your convenience and ease of use, including several that are reformatted so that you can quickly and cheaply reproduce them at home or take the files along to your local print shop and have it done there.

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.
