Oh, I Hate Spiders! - A short FREE 5e adventure for 3 to 5 characters at 3rd level

Oh, I Hate Spiders! is a 2-hour 5e OGL adventure, suitable for 3-5 characters at 3rd level. Here the characters meet the ponderous, oblivious, disastrous (and recently suspended) Professor Humbert Drumsley. And, of course, he needs help with something. God, he always needs help with something. Ok fine, just one more time!

Humbert was studying a sac of phase spider eggs in the basement of a local tavern, when he suddenly had to abandon his research. Because they were about to hatch. But don't worry, he didn't tell anyone. Probably everything is just fine, these things have a way of working themselves out. Well, now the entire place is infested, the tavern is empty, and the building is filled with ethereal fog!

"Just bring back a few live specimens," he says. "It'll be easy," he says. Humbert. What a thoughtless jerk.

Inside this adventure you can find:

  • Professor Humbert Drumsley – Introduce your players to Humbert, a error-prone mage, and a sure-fire catalyst for adventure
  • Copper Carrot Tavern – The local tavern, run by the bartender Margo, and the site of the phase spider hatchling infestation. The adventure also features a map of the ground level of the building
  • 3 all-new magic items – Arm your players with a bag of wardstones and some wardstone jars. They may even decide to buy the phase belt (no refunds!)
  • A side-trek romp – Take some of the pressure of your campaign with a fun little side trek. Don't worry, the characters can't do much more damage than Humbert already has...

This is a really cute, quirky little adventure. While I reflavoured it somewhat for my own setting (as the over the top zaniness doesn't ring true to my setting), it has all of the elements of a really fun adventure: challenging combats, an elemen [...]

Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I've skimmed through and it looks great! My only criticism is that the print version has text that's just a bit small for my liking. I'm really looking forward to using this in my games! [...]

This is a fun little adventure. I believe the premise and original quest are cleverly designed, and would make for a good one-off session. If I can give some constructive criticism to the adventure, it would be: Mis [...]

I regularly follow Terry Herc to see what kind of adventures and items he comes up with next. I found this Humbert Drumsley Adventure to be pretty funny to play through, my players had some good laughs and the battle/puzzle of grabbing the spiders 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.
