Find the Lost Expedition - Level 5 Adventure

Watermarked PDF

Find the Lost Expedition is a Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition adventure by Midnight Tower for a group of three to five 5th-level characters.
The adventure can be played as a one-shot episode or as part of the Secrets of the Drow trilogy.

An archaeology expedition has gone missing in the old mines, deep underneath Winterhold. The group was searching for a legendary artefact, but they have not returned.

Explore the old mines below Winterhold, find the lost expedition, and bring them home.

But beware of vicious underground monsters and the drow – for the legendary artefact is of interest to others than the archaeologists in Winterhold.

Sharpen your blades. Nock your arrows. Ready your spells. Can you find the lost explorers and bring them back to Winterhold alive?

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.
