BEOWULF 5e: The Triple Serpent


Of old in Ireland, there was the Fianna. A full accounting of the deeds of this band of heroes is too long to write here; be assured they were many and glorious. Every man and woman of the Fianna was supremely skilled in one fashion or another, and all were peerless warriors. They travelled the length and breadth of the island of Ireland, fighting monsters and performing marvellous feats that are still retold in poetry and prose to this day.

All that, though, was long long ago. The time of the Fianna has passed; all but two were slain in the bloody slaughter of the battle of Gabhra, and that was five hundred years ago if it’s a day. Ireland is a holy country now, an island of saints and scholars, converted to the Church by Saint Patrick and his followers. On this isle, the Age of Heroes is passing, and soon all that remains will be the stories recorded by the monks in their great books.

But while Heroes may be fading from Ireland, there are still monsters…


Written by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan (The One Ring RPG, Dracula Dossiers) and beautifully illustrated by Jon Hodgson (The One Ring RPG, Dungeons and Dragons, Warhammer Historical), and Scott Purdy (Numenera, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Pathfinder), is suitable for Heroes of level 5 to 6.

Full use of the scenario requires the BEOWULF: Age of Heroes book, though there are plenty of ideas to mine for other settings.

The Triple Serpent includes:
• (optional to use) poster-sized battle maps
• VTT tokens
• A separate PDF of NPC portraits to show players

The preview says that this is for levels 5-6, but the description of the adventure in Trials of the Twin Seas (on your website) says it's for levels 6-7. I realise that level guidelines aren't very exact in 5e, but which is intended?

Any chance for a full-size preview? :)

Of course! It should have been live from the start, but it apparently didn't stick or a button was missed somewhere! Should be live now!

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.
