White Box Quests - Moans of Dead

Citizens of the small Village of Iceshire claim they can hear what they believe sounds like the moaning of dead humans from the snow capped Elrumir Woods north of their tiny civilization. And as the cycles of time pass, so does the closeness and number of the wailing increase. It is believed by the villagers that once benign Wizard Craedric, now a constantly cackling and screaming Liche, has plans to unleash a horde of undead upon the populace and throughout all of Winterlight Valley. Further ascertaining these fears is the Cleric of the Gray Pearl Moon’s frequent Nightmares of “flesh rippers” eating the villagers by the darkness of a “soon to come” morning.

This adventure is part one of a three part campaign (each a separate publication): Shadow of the Corpse Tree and Ascent to Heaven are acts 2 and 3 respectively. Moans of Dead is an Adventure for 2 to 6 Swords & Wizardry White Box characters at first level. After arriving at Iceshire, player’s characters are hired by the Cleric of the Gray Pearl Moon to Quest to cease the wailing heard at night from the Elrumir Woods. However, before their departure, the Liche attacks Iceshire with a small army of undead as they prepare to venture into the snow laden Woods from Iceshire’s Hallowed Halls.

Veteran Grognards can easily adapt this adventure for 5E.

File Size:

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.
