40x30 Battlemap - Infernal Arena


Infernal Arena

Lava cracks like shards of glass as it laps against islands of bone, overlooked by a skeleton throne far above this infernal arena. 
Steel spikes and sharpened stakes line the walls, preventing gladiators from climbing to escape. Two stairwells lead down to the arena, splashed with blood and sealed with barred gates—though one only meets with molten lava.
Stone pews overlook the arena for a bloodthirsty audience, alongside skulls with flaming sockets. Within the arena itself are scorched bridges connecting the isles, and tall pillars with sharpened spikes for combatants to utilize.

Adventure Seed

A wizard will pay you a small fortune to travel into the plane of fire. There you will acquire a magically enhanced flaming dagger from a djinn Lord. The wizard says he wants you to do whatever is necessary to get it, before opening a portal for you. You will, of course, be paid AFTER you have acquired the goods and returned to the material plane—adventurers are notorious for taking gold and, ahem, leaving. 

When you step through the portal, you arrive at the entrance to a giant obsidian castle and salamander guards surround you. They escort you to the djinn Lord, who says that to receive the dagger you must first defeat his champions in the arena.

If you defeat them, the greatly pleased djinn applauds loudly from his throne above the arena as the wizard steps out of the shadows behind him. The djinn thanks him for his contributions, saying the gladiators have performed as promised. He hands the dagger to the wizard, who grins before teleporting back to the material plane. 

WHAT’S HAPPENING? The wizard has sold your party as gladiators in exchange for the dagger, without telling you. 
If you try to kill the djinn, he will summon a fire elemental to fight for him. If you defeat that, he will cast invisibility and attempt to flee (he was previously trapped for many years and will vehemently resist it happening again).

If you negotiate with the djinn he will be reluctant to release his best champions yet—unless of course you recover an item of even greater value from the wizard. Something he’s had his eyes on for a while now… If you agree to recover it for him, the djinn will open a portal for you, after branding you magically so he knows where you are until you fulfill your deal.

Product Information

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.
