The Goblins of Summerkeep

Watermarked PDF


A local lord has a job: one of his ancestral castles has been abandoned for decades, and goblins have now taken up residence inside.  The party is sent to Summerkeep, and its accompanying village of Westmarsh, to rout the goblin menace.

They arrive to discover that the goblin menace is worse than they were told.  Not only have the goblins been stealing sheep and cattle, now a young boy is missing!  They must wipe out the goblins quickly, despite their enemy's fortified position.

The Goblins of Summerkeep is a 4-encounter D&D 4th Edition Heroic Tier adventure that's been designed so it can be scaled for 1st through 10th level adventurers.  It's the first of a series of campaign modules that can be added to any Heroic Tier campaign.  It's designed to be easy to run and easy to drop in to an existing campaign.

Each monster is presented in three variations, one for 1st level adventurers, one for 5th level, and one for 10th level.  As a result, it's easy to tweak the monsters for any party from 1st to 10th level.

In addition, each piece of dialogue is presented in two columns: a carefully-written piece of dialogue that you can read as "boxed text," and a detailed summary that you can customize according to your preferred speech patterns.

The full-color artwork and maps have been carefully color-corrected to print perfectly on color and black-and-white printers. The module includes maps that will print in standard one-inch squares on a normal piece of paper.

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.
