An adventure for 3-5 characters of 1st to 4th level using old-school advanced rules with twists and open-ended problem-solving in a city rife with overt treasure-hunting and covert Byzantine plotting by multiple factions.

Legends of a "mountain of gold" provoke a mad scramble for a mysterious book laden with clues to find certain statues around the city, which themselves hold additional clues leading to the hiding place of the fabulous treasure.

Reviewer Bryce Lynch writes:

"There’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World vibe to this adventure..."

"...a lot of variety..."

"...a convincing city adventure"

"...little mini-adventure encounters all with the potential to spawn those zany player character plans that make D&D so great."

"...a myriad of... small details... make the adventure easy to run and flavorful."

"...the chaos adds a great element to play in an adventure like this."

Picked this up after listening to the Fear of the Black Dragon podcast episode covering this scenario. It's The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World in a fantasy setting. That happened to be my grandfather's favorite comedy about a group of people that [...]

I ran this and it was awesome. The module could do with some aids to the GM - a rumor table for random chats in the city with non-keyed npcs, a list of the core information to convey to the pcs, a list of places where the book can be found - but overal [...]

A different from the norm, fun scenario. Essentially a treasure hunt the whole city is excited about, with clues to the ultimate location to be found on certain statues. Combats may happen, but they are not the focus. Creative thinking will be rewarded [...]

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.
