- The Ultimate GM's Guide to Headless Hydra Games' new adventure path!

The Ossindrillon is an ancient place, and your players’ characters are not the first band of heroes to gain wealth and glory within. Centuries ago, just as Mor Aldenn was founded, a group of adventurers called the Exalted Champions rose to fame by plundering—and later killing—the dreaded dragon Taraathalorm Wyrmmother. History remembers the Exalted Champions as great heroes, but they were people with foibles and eccentricities just like the PCs in your own campaign. 
This adventure path pits your PCs against Taraathalorm Wyrmmother, a green dragon long dead but clinging to the world as a vengeful ghost. The Wyrmmother has engendered a brutal but secretive cult of miscreants and monsters. This cult seeks to empower their mistress with god-like power, and your PCs are destined to stop this from occurring. In order to do so, your PCs will receive aid from the Exalted Champions that defeated the Wyrmmother centuries ago, in the form of magical items once wielded by the Exalted Champions themselves. 
The setting for this adventure path is described in the Mor Aldenn Setting Guide. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the entire Setting Guide, but particularly the overview of Taraathalorm Wyrmmother and the Cult of the Wyrmmother on pages 118-120 of the Mor Aldenn Setting Guide. The cult’s actions—particularly its machinations to elevate the Wyrmmother—provide much of the conflict in the Viridian Legacy adventure path.
The true history and personalities of the Exalted Champions have been mostly forgotten, and so are not presented in the Mor Aldenn Setting Guide—to most Aldennians, the Exalted Champions are merely mythologized heroes. Because the Exalted Champions play such a large role in the Viridian Legacy adventure path—in personality if not in person—this Viridian Legacy GM’s Guide presents the Exalted Champions in detail.
If you like this free PLAYER'S GUIDE, look out for the upcoming first chapter of the VIRIDIAN LEGACY adventure path! It is called the Wasting of Duny slough and is co-written by Thomas Baumbach and Ron Lundeen (creator of the adventure path).

File Size:

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.
