Earthdawn Adventure Compendium (Classic Edition)

Watermarked PDF

A chance meeting with an elderly Wizard leads to a simple errand, one that takes the heroes on a journey of intrigue and betrayal that may end in glory--or death!


Fire-breathing Horrors plague the skies above Travar. The heroes are asked to help, but the search for a means to defeat the creatures leads to a hidden windling kaer and a lost treasure. Mystery and magic are the keys to saving the city!

Deep in the isolated hinterlands of Barsaive, where strangers are met with fear and suspicion, the black-clad fanatics of the Grim Legion purge the land from evil. Who’d have thought that a small band of unsuspecting adventurers would arrive to meddle with the Legion’s affairs?

Someone has stolen the old elf’s memory, and the heroes have few clues. On a quest leading to a treacherous wasteland plagued by the wretched disciples of a terrible Horror, the heroes can only hope to live to tell the tale.

A quest to learn the dark secret of the ancient Blades of Cara Fahd and unlock their magical power takes the heroes across Barsaive, from the ork Kingdom of Cara Fahd, to the dark heart of the Tylon Mountains.

The Adventure Compendium is an adventure supplement for Earthdawn, containing five classic adventures that can be run as a campaign or stand-alone. Requires use of the Player's and Gamemaster's Compendiums.

This is an adventure supplement for the Earthdawn Classic game line, and compiles and updates the content from a number of Earthdawn First Edition adventures into a single volume. The Earthdawn Classic game line is no longer supported; it is superseded by the Earthdawn Third Edition game line from RedBrick, available from this site.

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.
