Purple Mountain II: Ruins of the Dwarven Delve

Purple Mountain II: Ruins of the Dwarven Delve


Purple Mountain II: Ruins of the Dwarven Delve is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible module designed for four 2nd-level characters that uses the medium XP advancement track. Play it in any campaign setting with a mountain-based megadungeon, or as a stand-alone dungeon with a mega-dungeon feel. Included are guidelines for linking it to "Purple Mountain I: Temple of the Locust Lord" as well as for introducing this level on its own, a new undead, and multiple NPCs.

Purple Mountain II: Ruins of the Dwarven Delve throws your party into a ruined dwarven settlement haunted by the restless dead, insidious fungi, sadistic fey, and more. Devious mechanisms bar the way and the delve's strange, feuding inhabitants loom on all sides while the party search for the valuable secrets of the ruins.

The Purple Mountain series is designed to be a classic mega-dungeon. You know the kind...

It doesn't have a grand plot or even a consistent theme level to level. Instead, it has pathways to the subterranean realms, prisons for demons, ancient ruins, lost civilizations, legendary weapons, mysterious magic, mines, slave pits, elemental nodes, water-filled passages, mazes, trick doors, traps, haunted levels, classic monsters (ropers, trapper, mimics, otyughs [especially otyughs], owlbears), dragons, monsters too big to have ever fit down those hallways, and artifacts!

A classic mega-dungeon with everything wrong and right about it!

Battlemaps to accompany this dungeon are available for $0.99 from Crooked Staff Publications.

The second level of the Purple Mountain mega-dungeon looks quite nice and fun to play. It has challenging encounters and I like that not everything is out to kill characters, unless they make them angry :-) There is a good use of the environment during [...]

Here's a bit of fun for anyone who enjoys running a good 'dungeon crawl' adventure! Whilst it's Level 2 of a massive multi-layer complex burrowed deep into the bowels of a mountain, it can be run as a stand-alone dungeon if that suits your needs better. [...]

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.
