Basilisk's Gully Mine

Cold bellows up from the yawning abyss that this mine was built on. Beyond the lush forest a broken bridge crosses the deep pit, wooden frameworks have fallen away and the small shacks that surround this pit are in complete disarray.

Makeshift wooden walkways crisscross the gap and connect the old collapsed tunnels to the central platform where an old crane sits silent and unused. Wooden crates and barrels still containing implements or mining materials gathered here still remain and may yet be of use.

Adventure Seed

An invasive species of animated shoe has shown up in this region and begun causing trouble. They harass villagers and travelers alike, nipping at their heels for subjugating others of their—non-animated—kind. It has grown so bad that the villagers have begun to stop wearing shoes, for fear of the little menaces.

Fed up with walking everywhere barefoot, the villagers have employed you to seek out the breeding grounds, and vanquish them. Everyone knows the shoes are shy, and will only multiply in dark, secluded places.

You track the shoes to an abandoned mine, where an old wizard lives in a shack built into its wall. There is a beautiful shoe—clearly the master of all shoes—on his head. He is dressed in filthy rags, with a long white beard and unkempt hair. Clearly, he’s been out here a while…

He runs at you with glassy eyes, yelling at you in gibberish and throwing cantrips as a warning.

What’s happening? The wizard who created the sentient shoes as an experiment found events spiraling out of hand quickly as the shoes began to multiply. Then came the master shoe, who jumped onto his head and has been mind-controlling him since.

If your players make a successful role for insight, they will realize he isn’t gibbering mindlessly, but rather, speaking the language of the shoes.

If you can separate him from the master shoe, perhaps he will regain his wits?

Product Information
File Size:
150.53 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.
