I don't know if anyone can help me... I have a few questions about Pathfinder's tome after comparing 2 dungeons against 5E versions.
The first mini-dungeon for 4PC at level 1 is Hobgoblin lair. In 5E version I've seen images of the description and there are 2 enemies on each room. At PF version there are 4 enemies and with 33hp!! at CR2!! (the stats are increased comparing to PF Bestiary entry (hp 33 vs 17, CR 2 vs 1/2). I think it is too difficult to 4PC at level 1.
The same occurs with the very first dungeon, Six Feet Under (1PC level 1). At PF version there are 4 goblins but at 5E version only 2.
Am I right that 4PC can't fight against that 4 CR2 enemies? How can I adjust it? Reducing enemies to 2 as in 5E version?
I've only check these 2 mini-dungeons but are the remaining dungeons as difficult as these?

With "Six Feet Under", the goblins are deliberately a challenge, which is why the nightwatchman steps in to help if needed. Also, the idea is for the adventurer to deal with the lone goblin before it reaches the other three.

With "Hobgoblin Lair" Jonathan Ely MAY have intended for it to be a real bone-cruncher of an encounter, especially as the bear traps are in the doorway. Four 1st level PCs could be either taken out entirely or have every resource used before they enter the main complex. Perhaps one could be a sergeant, and three just standard types, which would still be a proper test.

Thanks a lot!
But do you know why the difference between the 5E version? I mean, they are the same adventures...
Customer avatar
Jonathan G. N June 18, 2019 12:35 am UTC
Because 5E is a completely different game system than Pathfinder RPG.

I've only got two people to play with and finding suitable adventures for us to learn with has been ... tricky. Very tricky. Finally stumbled across you guys and had a look at the Adventure Assistant.

Not only can you sort by party size but you've got a couple explicitly designed to be run for two players and about two dozen more I can probably run while over-levelling them or providing minion character to fill the gaps.

Can't afford today but you're going on my wishlist for my next paycheque and hopefully we'll be able to run our first of your adventures when we start up again in Feb!

Just wanted to thank you so much for such an excellent tool and wide variety of adventures. You've made my life and my GMing so much simpler today :)

I'm so glad to hear that our Mini-Dungeon Tome and Mini-Dungeon Adventure Assistant are helping you. Our plan is also to outfit our entire website with this tool so you'll be able to quickly and easily locate any adventure you may need for any size group. I also feel your pain on finding level appropriate adventures for a smaller group. We did a lot of one-on-one gaming back in the day just because we were teens without cars and lived in such a rural area, even if I knew 4-6 kids that could play, getting them together in one place was nearly impossible!

Here's to your future gaming!

Has anyone come up with a list of which ones connect together? I know that some of Stephen Yeardley's do, going into the pit, and the solo adventure ones. Any others I'm not seeing?

Hi Thomas, we've been working on a digital tool which will allow you to search and sort the Mini-Dungeons. I'm making a request to add in the ability to search by linked adventures. We will provide a link on the product pages for the Mini-Dungeon Tome once the digital tool is available.

Is there any way to get the hardcover in the UK without the huge shipping cost, i.e. a UK stockist?

Hi Greg! Yes, there is! Please get in touch with me through (Contact us link) and let's discuss. I have a worldwide distributor for print books and we need to find out who your FLGS (Friendly Local Gaming Store) is. Thanks! -Jonathan G. Nelson AAW Games

Just looking for some quick clarification. I play strictly on VTT currently and was wondering if these maps have easily usable maps for me to put onto my roll20 table and use. Or do i need to buy the seperate map pack?
Customer avatar
Ian S October 03, 2018 5:51 am UTC
I guess a follow up question is, for the monster stat blocks do you really only include average damage and not what the actual dice roll is?
Customer avatar
Jonathan G. N October 04, 2018 1:39 am UTC
You'll want the Mini-Dungeon Tome VTT Map pack (520 maps!) here:

Or via DriveThruRPG/RPGnow here:

Yes, monsters include average damage. We had to find a way to truncate the monster entries so as to fit everything within one book. We did it but some things such as dice and descriptions had to be cut. However, you can reference the Monster Manual or Tome of Beasts in each case if you prefer not to go with the auto damage. Personally, I like to roll dice but I can tell which die (or dice) to roll just based on the auto damage or if for some reason I have no idea I just crack open the Monster Manual prior to the game and check. It still flows easier than traditional adventures since everything is so streamlined.

Yes, we will probably do a bundle but that won't be for 6-12 months at least. We're gearing up to launch the next Kickstarter! :)

An article

This massive compilation and expansion of AAW Games‘ beloved Mini-Dungeon-series clocks in at 322 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial,2 pages of ToC, 4 pages of KS-backer-thanks (including a heart-warming “Thank you note from Jonathan G. Nelson, 1 page SRD, 1 page of advertisement, leaving us with a mighty 312 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

Full Disclaimer: I have, over the years, reviewed 81 of the mini-dungeons contained within this book prior to their respective revisions herein. I have also contributed two mini-dungeons to this book. As such, this differs from my usual review-style in that, being a contributing author, I will refrain from providing a final verdict and instead will endeavor to provide an unbiased view of this book. That being said, bit was requested that I take a look at this book by one of my patreons, and I gladly obliged.

Any chance you can either list, or add to the preview, the Challenge Ratings for all these? I'd like to know what kind of spread you're offering regarding amounts/percentages of low, mid and high level mini dungeons.
Customer avatar
Thilo G May 29, 2018 12:37 pm UTC
The book has a ton of material for all level-ranges. It is slightly edged towards low-levels (since those are rather popular), but also sports a lot of mid-level, and, more importantly, a surprising amount of actually nice high-level content. 17 of the mini-dungeons (not counting the "any level" scenarios) are for levels 15+, which is pretty much unique, considering the dearth of high-level content for PFRPG.
Customer avatar
Jonathan G. N July 12, 2018 11:35 pm UTC
Actually, the Kickstarter page has a breakdown by level! I can include that on the product description but DTRPG must approve. For now, it's here:
It's not completely accurate because stretch goal Mini-Dungeons weren't included and we added a lot more mid and higher levels after the goals were achieved. We will be making a new graphic and post on product pages this month.

The book looks very promising! When will the POD (print on demand) version of the book be available?
I‘d vastly prefer a printed product on my gaming table.
Thanks in advance for your answer!

How many of these are from the existing mini dungeons?
Customer avatar
Jonathan G. N May 02, 2018 10:09 pm UTC
Hi Marcelo, about 70 are from the already released Mini-Dungeons. Take note though that these have all been completely redone, edited, new maps, and all linked to the included glossary for ease of use. Nearly all the new Mini-Dungeons were written by an all-star cast as listed above in the product description. Enjoy!

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.
