The Ruby-Eyed Phylactery - Level-7 Shadowdark Adventure


The Ruby-Eyed Phylactery

Level-6 Shadowdark Adventure


In Red-Eyed Phylactery, the king summons the characters to help solve the gradually fiercer attacks of an undead magician who emerges from the sewers and attacks all around him. Despite the abomination being destroyed three times already, it keeps coming back, each time stronger and more cunning. The characters must track the lich back to its lair before its body reforms again and he attacks the kingdom's capital once more.

This Shadowdark adventure brings the heroes to an undiscovered crypt under the city. It has been there without being disturbed for over 5 decades. Within, the characters learn of the nature of their enemy, an immortal spellcasting lich. To defeat it, a mysterious magical vessel known as a phylactery must be found and destroyed. The vessel is in the dungeon but a wall of force protects it. The characters must find a way to disable it or else the lich shall appear before them.

This adventure has been designed for Shadowdark RPG through their 3rd-party license. The system is meant to be accessible to OSR players and modern players alike. Adapting the material to 5e or other systems is a simple affair.

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.
