The Dragon's Secret

A Lost Temple,
a Mythic Hoard,
and a Legendary Lie!

A fantastic Tapestry of Mysteries that are waiting to be solved by a party of 6-8 5th to 7th level Adventurers.

The Dragon’s Secret centers on a mystery from the past: villagers invited a gold dragon to bless and protect the region with her presence… for a little tribute… and a temple… and followers... and perhaps just a whole lot more tribute. When the dragon eventually went mad, she laid waste to the surrounding lands in a fiery rage, ending with her death at the hands of heroes. Except… they found almost none of her treasure. In time people forgot the cathedral’s location, but the legend of her missing treasure still inspires seekers to keep looking.

This adventure is returning to its roots as a fundraiser. It was originally published in an abridged version in 2017 as part of a limited edition fundraiser featuring the work of TSR alumni. The author/artist will be donating a major portion of her future income from this work to an entertainment media non-profit that is active in the support of human rights.

The Dragon's Secret marks the return to tabletop game publishing of Hall of Fame designer and artist, Jennell Jaquays, the creator of enduring game settings such as the D&D adventures Dark Tower and Caverns of Thracia (Judges Guild), Griffin Mountain for Runequest (Chaosium), and M5 Talons of Night and  FR5 The Savage Frontier for D&D (TSR, Inc.).

The self-contained adventure fits into any campaign setting and opens the first door to The Thousand Worlds, Jaquays' own game multiverse.

In addition to the adventure, the book includes “homebrew” rules variants, new monsters, and new playable character races for those not too shy to add a talking duck or an aardvark to their game world.

I really enjoyed "The Dragon's Secret" adventure and wish that Jenelle Jaquays would publish more adventures like this. I found the maps to be well-designed and easy to understand, and the area keys imaginative. The NPCs were varied and [...]

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.
