Mini-Dungeon adventure for four to six characters of levels 10-11

Centuries ago, the black dragon Rezmaraxus extorted tribute from the residents of a frontier village.

One day, a warrior with a magic sword challenged the young dragon. Rezmaraxus slew the would-be hero, and razed the village in retaliation, claiming its ruins as his new lair.

The once fertile valley quickly turned into a fetid swamp. Since then, settlers have returned to the region, though not to the accursed valley. Rezmaraxus, now grown to an adult, once more demands tribute from the villages near his domain.

The dragon has conscripted a tribe of trollkin through physical threats and promises of future wealth, which he uses to enforce his will. When his minions fail, Rezmaraxus personally retaliates against the defiant villages. He merely mocks fleeing villagers but has so far killed any who dared to challenge him.

Rezmaraxus has begun openly mocking the concept of dragon slaying by declaring himself the Hero Slayer. Village leaders beseech the heroes to stop Rezmaraxus, offering them the dragon's hoard as a reward. Surely, such impressive heroes will succeed where so many others have failed...

Mini-Dungeons are short, setting-agnostic adventures for 5th Edition which can be easily inserted anywhere in your campaign.

Product Information
File Size:
2.08 MB
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.
