Shadows of Lastwatch Keep (5E)

Watermarked PDF

A fast-paced one-shot from the bestselling author of The Secrets of Skyhorn Lighthouse!

A shadowy force gathers inside the abandoned halls of Lastwatch Keep. Can the players defeat the drow invaders before they escape to the underworld with sinister intelligence about the surface?

Shadows of Lastwatch Keep is a one-shot adventure for four or five 4th-level characters. It takes about 3-4 hours to complete and includes:

  • A drow strike team desperate to escape the keep’s surprise foe

  • A new monster, the drow commando

  • Combat cards for each monster, PC, and special treasure

  • A beautiful, hand-drawn map by Jake from Beware The Wizard
  • By popular request, a print-friendly version of the adventure!

Ready to go epic? Scope out Fires of Iskh, a volcanic one-shot for 20th-level characters:

When a volcano appears out of thin air, the ensuing eruption is a cataclysm unseen in this age. To stop it, a group of legendary heroes must defeat an evil so ancient and powerful that the fabric of reality trembles at her wrath...

"This is one of the most well-written and fun adventures I have ever come across.” -S.R., ★★★★★

The Arcane Library does it again! A delightful blend of classic D&D feel with game-changing concept and design! I love the Libarary's collaboration with map-maker Beware the Wizard on this adventure. The map is colorful, evocative, beautifully rend [...]

A very good one-shot! And as others have said, this could be the start of a campaign. Snarg and Iggle will be a hoot to play as NPCs in the adventure. I may try to run this Adventure at our local Con in July as it will be fun, fast paced and leave it [...]

This is an excellent adventure and can lead to a full scale campaign if played correctly. Something that would take a single night of four hours could span into weeks or even months of adventures in the Underdark and bring fun stories for people to sha [...]

A fantastic short adventure that can be used as a One Shot, or the start of a mini campaign. The History and details provided here are detailed yet vague enough to allow them to plug into existing adventures, or have entire campaigns built around them. [...]

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.
