Crypt of the Dancing Wyvern

The long-lost crypt of Syr Oweyn of the Dancing Wyvern Knights must be found. Its riches are ripe for plunder. But those brave enough to explore it must be smart enough — and lucky enough — to survive its many dangers.

A Five Torches Deep adventure for low-level characters.

This adventure is designed for Five Torches Deep, but is compatible with any six-stat adventure or OSR game. 

There are 2 twists in the adventure: A rival NPC adventuring party got to the Crypt first, and the real threat doesn’t manifest until the adventurers try to leave.

Comes with NEW magic items and monsters! 

heraldic_wyvern.pngHundreds of years ago, a brave knight died peacefully in his sleep. The foremost warrior of his order, The Knights of the Dancing Wyvern, Syr Oweyn the Quick was laid to rest in an elaborate crypt with all the protections their wealthy order could purchase. For decades after his death, Syr Oweyn’s crypt was carefully tended and guarded by squires, for it became fashionable for Dancing Wyvern knights to be laid to rest there, often paying vast sums for the honor.

Then the Cult of Zog swept in out of the West. The kingdom was shattered. Those Dancing Wyvern knights who were not slain in the onslaught were dispersed. The squires who kept watch on the crypt set its wards, locked its gates, and fled to die in a manner as seemed best to them.

Now, in the Watchful Peace, rumors swirl among adventurers about the hoarded treasure that awaits in the Crypt of the Dancing Wyvern for whoever might collect it...

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.
