Adventure Location 005 - The Roadside Temple

Adventure Location 005 - The Roadside Temple

Watermarked PDF

Those that worship the sun god often place moveable crystals, mirrors and reflectors atop their temples. This serves many purposes. It can form a beacon of light to travellers in the night, much like a lighthouse for lost ships. It can bring light down into the temple itself for times of prayer and sermon. However, it’s greatest function is to cast the last sunlight on the graves of the dead as they are interred. Therefore in the grounds of a temple of the sun god, all graves are aligned so this light atop it may shine on their faces.

Many such temples are placed along the major roads, so that travellers and local communities have common places to gather, share the words of scripture and lay their dead to rest. Every now and then as a town fails or villages are ravaged these temples are left as isolated monuments to the people that came before. Sometimes something even worse befalls one of these sacred sites. Even savages and barbarians respect the sanctity of the temple grounds, but not all foes are of the natural world.

The Roadside Temple has been corrupted at it’s core and sits awaiting those brave, or foolish, enough to enter.

This open source adventure location is a standalone scenario that is designed to fit into an existing campaign, or be the jumping off point for one.

As an open source fantasy location, the Roadside Temple is a useful site for many roleplaying games, including: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Zweihander RPG and of course, Dungeons & Dragons!

This document will provide you with location descriptions, hooks to get in and out of the scenario and some potential hazards and enemies that would fit into the location well. As such this document will refer to elements that should be represented by finding the appropriate stats in which ever system you choose to play.

We hope you enjoy.

Product Information
File Size:
6.77 MB
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.
