Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

For your consideration is the adventure module THE CORRUPT TEMPLE. It is the very first adventure module I wrote and the first in the "SK series" of modules. It is a stirring journey into the temple of an aquatic goddess. Created for a party of 4-6 characters of 3rd to 5th level, with 44 pages of adventure, this module is sure to provide many hours of challenging and exciting game play for both GM and players alike!

The Jarlburgh Valley was a peaceful place. Human and demi-humans worked side by side to build a strong, vibrant community. Farmers, miners, sailors and loggers brought prosperity to the valley. The artisans of Jarlburgh wrought items of great strength and surpassing beauty, highly prized throughout the region. The local noble, Lord Kanin, is a wise and benevolent ruler. Sitting on his throne at Jarlburgh Keep, he rules with fairness, a great respect for equality, and an eye always on the future; and Jarlburgh’s future seemed bright indeed!

That was before the raids started. For the last six months, Jarlburgh has been under siege! Caravans have been routinely attacked, their merchandise stolen, and the people kidnapped or murdered. Farmers and other trades folk are waylaid, their goods stolen, and they go missing or turn up dead in the fields or washed up along the banks of the Kaldirstraum River. The authorities have been unable to stop the attacks, and the situation has become quite dire.

Traders refuse to bring caravans to the valley for fear of losing their merchandise and their lives. Stores of food and raw materials are not making it to the valley, and the craftspeople have no work to perform. Commerce has come to a standstill. With winter fast approaching, the food and firewood reserves are frighteningly low and the populace is becoming desperate!

Lord Kanin has put out a call for all able bodied adventurers to come to Jarlburgh and end the evil menacing his lands. Will you answer the call?

This 44 page adventure module contains a completely original, all new action packed Old School adventure, full of twist and chances for heroic action! Several sessions of role-playing fun are right at your fingertips!

The adventure is fully detailed and ready for immediate use with very little preparation by the GM or the players! The module includes an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to the history of the ancient temple which is the heart of this adventure.

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.
