Forgotten Tomb (5e)

Watermarked PDF

We’re excited to offer Forgotten Tomb as a free introduction to Adventure Shorts, Volume 1. This short encounter, written for the fifth edition of the world’s most popular role playing game, can be played as a stand-alone encounter or dropped into an existing adventure or campaign. The encounter is for those playing at a beginning level and might appreciate something they can just jump into for a one or two-hour gaming session.

We’ve included a few monsters, traps and treasure to get your new characters started. The encounter also includes a map that can be used to set up your own player grid.

If you like Forgotten Tomb we hope you’ll consider buying the whole series in Adventure Shorts, Volume 1 here on DriveThruRPG.

Look for more short encounters and full-length adventures to come soon.

Thanks for adventuring with us!

I used this mini dungeon to practice DMing for the first time. I've been a player for a while, but never went 'behind the screen' before. I absolutely loved it! It was easy to understand and follow, gave me a good mental image (from the cover picture, [...]

I picked up both versions of the "Forgotten Tomb." My only complaint was that I could not get a decent 200% print out using my Adobe Reader. I would recommend including a full one-inch grid printable for us poorer GMs. Other than that, a [...]

Perfect for my needs of filling a sandbox: Wonderful presentation, succint descriptions, clear and to the point. Bear in mind this is a small, couple page product. If you're looking for something more filled out this may not be for your tastes. [...]

A beautiful presentation, but this item is a little too small and had too little information to be helpful for me. [...]

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.
