The Halls of Light


The gnomes of Rockswald have asked for your help.  They operate a mithrl mine, but it has recently been invaded by goblins.  They will reward anyone who can rid them of the goblins.

The Halls of Light is a short, introductory adventure for beginning characters of any fantasy tabletop roleplaying game.  It can fit easily into any fantasy world.  It has been crafted with good dungeon design in mind.

  • The caverns that the gnomes live in has two entrances, as do the Halls of Light themselves, the area that the goblins have invaded.
  • It is designed to reward exploration and curiousity, with lots of loops and forks.
  • The enemies have two factions: the West Goblins and East Goblins, which provides opportunities for players to use cunning as well head-to-head combat to solve the problem.
  • The combat, which might ensue, is designed to be more interesting than your typical head-to-head combats.
  • The treasure is more than just money, and includes the deed to an inn, and mithrl ore.
  • There are lots of interesting things to interact with, including the phosphorescent mushrooms that give the adventure its title.
  • There is a home base, the underground Gnome Village, which the PC's can retreat to.
  • As an introductory adventure, it tries not to punish poor judgment too heavily, opting instead to provide more minor consequences than more advanced adventures might have.

I've marked it at less than a latte, because, although I have over 20 years of GM'ing experience, I want everybody to be able to enjoy my work at a low cost.

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.
