A collection of short 5e adventures featuring the ponderous, oblivious, disastrous (and recently suspended) Professor Humbert Drumsley!

You're in the middle of a major campaign. It's long, involved, and takes tons of prep. Now you're just hours away from your next session, and you don't have anything ready. Fear not! When Professor Humbert Drumsley shows up at the table, there's a problem that your players need to solve. Or Humbert is the problem, whatever works. At any rate, it will keep the characters busy for the night!

Professor Humbert Drumsley: 5e Adventure Codex is a collection of short adventures compatible with the latest edition of the world's oldest fantasy roleplaying system. Not only are these adventures ideal for low level characters, they're designed to be fun, fast-paced, and light-hearted.

Humbert is the stereotypical bumbling mage, perfect for introducing early in a campaign. He leans hard into familiar fantasy tropes, and he brings along his special brand of kooky arcane accidents and eldritch errors. You can use him to provide comic relief between major adventures, or to introduce your own quest hooks and plot points.

Inside this book you will find:

  • Professor Humbert Drumsley: Introduce your players to Humbert, an error-prone mage, and a sure-fire catalyst for adventure. You also get a (figurative) ton of lore!
  • 10 Adventures: Bring some excitement to your table with Humbert’s latest mishap. These can be used as one-shots, or you can string them together with one of several provided Story Arcs.
  • 6 Major NPCs: Expand your campaign with an array of helpful, threatening, or simply unconventional characters. Each NPC comes with lore to help you integrate them into a campaign as well as complete statblocks.
  • 30 Dangerous Creatures: The Codex uses unique creatures and statblocks crafted specifically for each adventure. All of these are contained within in the book – no need to reference another book just to run an adventure.
  • 50 Magic Items: Experience the wonders (and dangers) of Humbert’s magic. Perfect for adventure catalysts, trinkets, McGuffins, and rewards.
  • And much, much more!

I had fun with the family using the codex as a skin on top of a pre-existing game written for 5e. It was easy to use the codex to change a serious adult content game to a fun family friendly game but still not overdo the ridiculousness. I am delighted [...]

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.
