The Order of the Broadsword

A 5e Solo Adventure Module

King Bleymore's Kingdom has come under attack from the dark wizard Zurthrall and his two wizard lieutenants. Can you destory Zurthrall's sources of power and restore peace to the kingdom?

The Order of the Broadsword is a choose-your-adventure style narrative adventure for character levels 3-5 designed to be played Solo - no need for a game master! This campy sword and sorcery throwback is meant to pay homage to the early solo adventures of the 1980's. There are 3 main paths in the adventure that will all circle to the final encounter. The decisions you make during the adventure will determine what types of monsters you encounter, the order in the which the story progresses, and any combat allies you may gain! The story itself is rather linear, but the order in which the events unfold are completely up to the in-game decisions made by the player.  (and a few dice rolls!)

The adventure includes several allies for the player to meet during the course of the story. These allies will assist in combat and help to level the playing field. Of course, this gives an optional difficulty setting to the entire adventure - if you feel it is not challenging enough, don't use the helpful allies! This idea lets the player set their own difficulty level throughout the adventure. 

The adventure system contains a very simplistic 'AI' for controlling enemies (and allies) in combat. A simple dice roll determines how the AI controlled monster/ally will behave during a combat turn. Alternatively, standard stats are included in each stat block so that a player may fully run combat as they see fit. 

An additional 14 page compendium is included containing item descriptions, stat blocks, and shop keeper information for easy reference during the adventure. As of this release, there are no maps included. This adventure was designed for the 'theatre of the mind' playstyle.

What a great adventure! Well executed choose-your-own-adventure style: lots of choices and ability checks, descriptive enough to get the picture without being long winded, many stages to the journey. Opportunities to resupply, upgrade equipment, rest. [...]

I enjoyed this adventure... the plot was easy to follow, the writing was decent, and I only noticed 1 typo on my first playthrough. The layout was good, the monster stat block was right beside the section where you run into the monster. Art was nice. [...]

I just got through playing to the end of this adventure and I had a good time. I only died once and the combat was not super threatening so I would aim towards creating a level 3 character if you want a challenge. My biggest feedback would be to [...]

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.
