Hidden Heroes of the Awakened Woods

Watermarked PDF

Hidden Heroes is a one-shot adventure for the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The players take on the roles of small forest creatures as an unexpected incursion of predators into their home forest threatens their way of life. Through their own innate abilities and assistance from their fey friends, these small animals hope to save their friends, family, and home before it is too late. Play as the smallest creatures in D&D as they fight a tiny, epic battle to save their home from the encroaching predators.**

Designed to be played in no more than a session or two, it's a perfect adventure when you don’t have much time, or you need an action-oriented addition to your existing campaign.

Hidden Heroes of the Awakened Woods was originally offered as part of a successful Kickstarter.


Long ago, the Sprites of the Nexus Grove came to the Awakened Woods and founded their new home. Over the years, they became friends with the animals of the woods and sought to protect them. The Sprites guard the Awakened Woods fiercely and have used a portion of their fey magic to ward it. No humanoid or predatory animal has encroached on the forest in more than a hundred years, only those animals that eat plants or insects are able to enter.

The peaceful animals of the Awakened Woods lived in idyllic harmony.

Until one day a fox walked into the woods and everything changed.

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.
