Into the Ruins: #1 of the Quest for the Ruby Heart Adventure Path


Enjoy this re-interpretation of the infamous banned 1981 TSR module by Jean Well, "Palace of the Silver Princess." Few have seen the work, the first even authored by a woman, for management ordered it destroyed shortly after publication. 

This adventure presents 4 full color maps over its 68 pages and includes:

  • Suggestesd rules that allow you to capture the original (OSR) experience of the 1981 game flavor in the 5e ruleset
  • A character funnel presented as an alternative to character creation that takes several level 0 characters and discovers which among them has the adventuring mettel to survive to become first level. 
  • A fantasy queendom domianted entirely by women, as first envisioned in the original Jean Wells work
  • A sandbox dungeon romp across 3 floors which homages the original, including the inclusion of a decapus. 
  • A level 1-3 adventure which presents many deadly encoutners that the characters would best circumvent in order to score the treasure. 

The module presents the dungeon as full of treasure and deadly challenges that rewards creative roleplaying and punishes groups who seek to kill everything in sight.

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.
