The Straight Way Lost - Adventure & Sourcebook for 5e

Selected Option:

A Journey through Heaven and Hell in a fantastical Renaissance Italy


Save the City of Florence! Save Yourself! And maybe even save the World…

From a gruesome discovery at a social gathering to a journey full of peril and terror, The Straight Way Lost will put your characters to the test as they make their way through the horrors of Hell, the misery of Purgatory and the glory of Heaven to finally be able to confront the powers that threaten their beloved city of Florence.

Along the way, they will become embroiled in the maneuvers of the agents of Hell, get a glimpse of the machinations of the fae and learn at least some of the truth about how the world really works.

They can be members of the hidden peoples, plumb the secrets of the world as Philosophers or Artists with the power to reshape reality, or try to balance their responsibilities to home and family with their loyalties to their supernatural patrons as Warlocks bound to specific fiends, fae or titans. And of course, almost all of the established 5e classes can be played as well - plus a new Bard sub-class emblematic of Renaissance Italy: the Courtier.


The Straight Way Lost is a lavishly illustrated 400-page adventure, sourcebook and setting guide for Fifth Edition roleplaying in a fantastical Renaissance Italy inspired by that most renowned of Italian poems, Dante Alighieri’s Divina Commedia.

Extensive background chapters detail life in the Italian Renaissance, the worldview of its protagonists and the supernatural aspects unknown to most people, as well as extended character creation guidelines and group cohesion tools tailored to the setting.

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.
