The Towers of Dr. Xill

Dr. Xillgracone (aka Dr. Xill) was a genius and madman who experimented with the natural order of life on himself and others. Using super-science devices infused with the raw power of fire and ice, he summoned and enslaved elemental creatures to merge with his human subjects.

Explore Dr. Xills tower by thawing out the chambers...but beware what you may find!

However, an imbalance of thermal and polar micro-elementals used to control his labs tilted toward the polar side and slowly his menagerie was encased in ice—freezing Dr. Xill’s operations for millennia. Some say he miscalculated, others argue that his mind cracked and he took his own life, while still others insist his final act was precise and calculated—his plan yet to take effect. That is until now . . .

This 20pp 2nd/3rd level adventure is created for Dungeon Crawl Classics or Mutant Crawl Classics by Goodman Games, but could be adapted to any RPG adventure. 

The map shows ice thickness in areas where PCs must breach to access rooms, items, or evils!

One of the fantastic aspects in The Towers of Dr. Xill is the environment. The ice not only (temporarily) blocks areas of the map, but also interesting items and potential dangers. The PCs will have to carefully manage resources and tools discovered for excavation. And don't forget, the frictionless floors create opportunity for unexpected sliding and unintentional exploration! Frozen hallways may be used by PCs for clever advantages as well as a hasty doom. 

And of course, like many of our adventures there are a number of VISUAL PUZZLES for players to solve—this adventure more than any other. Dr. Xill is testing those who enter, and the reward for success may be unwelcome!

Puzzle rooms and visual handouts abound to captivate and test the PCs!

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.
