Adventure: The Secret Beneath Nighthorn Mountain

Watermarked PDF

A thousand or more years ago, deep beneath the jagged mountains now known as the Nighthorn Ranges, a war between Dark Elves and Dark Dwarves overflows onto the surface - forces from both sides begin to utilize the lands above to travel unhindered and ambush their opponents.

It is nearby one of these ruins south of a town that you find yourselves, beside a wide river. In the distance to the east about half a mile, through a sparse forest up to the base of the mountain range, lies the top of stonework towers - the ruin of the fortress, overtaken by nature.

This document contains the building blocks to narrate a low-level adventure for a typical party of 4 characters, each of about 4th level, however you are welcome to modify the encounters and stat blocks  to serve any collection of heroes that you wish.

This adventure is intended to be run a single session with only a brief reading necessary of the deeper contents but a solid understanding of the encounters and the progression of the adventure.

Also written for your benefit are several areas and taverns in the town of Tumunzund, to give a brief feel of the settlement and to allow for the party to visit after their adventure if they so desire.

This adventure is a teaser for a larger adventure available to buy; The Will of the Bone Tower Baron. After exploring the ruined keep, consider allowing the party to visit the town to dig deeper into this mystery of a missing dragon! Check it out at the link below:

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.
