Is there any way they will attempt to port this over to roll20 not that they have partnered with them?

We've been working on a completely decked-out build for Roll20 for many years now.
It is coming out within the next 2 weeks! :D

So I'm looking at the Shadow Knives spell for the PF1e version. This spell is overpowered. Up to 6 knives at BAB + spellcasting modifier against a flat-footed AC?! That also allows feats to work with them? That's an insane amount of sneak attacks if a Rogue got a hold of a wand of this or several scrolls, probably crafted by his caster ally in the party. These shouldn't target flat-footed AC.

(Sharing my review of the PF1e version of RotD)

I heard a lot about Rise of the Drow over the years of playing Pathfinder. I missed the initial releases and the subsequent Pathfinder compilation, so I was thrilled to join the Kickstarter for the Rise of the Drow Collector's Edition. I went in whole-hog for the BIG book, pdfs, dice, maps and even the Underworld Encounters Deck! To date, I have been very pleased with the end result, as the maps, dice, and pawns are really nice and are of top notch quality. The same could be said for the overall adventure, Rise of the Drow. The original adventure was presented at level six, but the story was later expanded to include a level one introduction. It is worth saying that this adventure probably works best for starting at level three, as the introduction can be quite taxing, to even the most veteran of players. This is a good thing, mind you, as this adventure starts in a way that feels unique and gets the players characters involved on the action from the...See more

Hello! Been excited by the possibility of running this and am now able to take a serious look at it. Does this have a 5E player's guide in this collection? Is there a separate 5E player's guide for the campaign? I only saw the PF versions for separate sales and with a campaign of this scope, I think it would be useful.

Thanks in advance for any timely information.

Just need to confirm, this is a conversion of the pathfinder campaign of the same name to 5e? Also, the website does not work.

Hi Jake,

Yes, this is the D&D 5E version of the PF1e campaign by the same name but this version is vastly different, it has been completely rearranged in an easier to use format and all the previous Rise of the Drow books are now included.

I tested the link and it worked just fine. That is the location where one can order the hardcover, plush doll, physical maps, etc.

I see! Thanks for the information! I just googled the site again and I can see and go to it now, so yeah I'm not sure what happened before but can confirm it's working now.

Does this come with the maps that are sold as separate product?

Hello Da,

This file does not come with the maps. I recommend checking out our map and token pack on and the PDF is also priced lower there.

Hello Da W,

The VTT maps are not included with the PDF, they are in the map/token set.

Thank you,

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.
