Dark Deeds in Last Hope (Starting)


Start your new campaign here!

Dark Deeds in Last Hope is an adventure for starting characters. As with all starting adventures, it provides the origin story for the group of characters that will venture into the world and fight against the encroaching darkness. Unlike other starting adventures, this one provides a bit more guidance to help novice Game Masters get their start. However, any GM interested in kicking off a new campaign will find this adventure a great starting point.

As citizens of Last Hope, the player characters find themselves drawn into a tangled plot that involves the efforts of a scoundrel working to pilfer a valuable relic from the local temple and the mayor’s disgraced son who has been dabbling in dark magic. As the characters investigate the plot, they must find ways to work together and overcome the myriad challenges in their path. If they succeed, they will forge the bonds of friendship and the trust they need to carry them on to even greater adventures.

A great introduction to Shadow of the Demon Lord. My players quickly took to the system, and I didn't have to invent much to adapt. [...]

This was the first time we played SotDL (been playing RPGs since 1979) and Dark Deeds in Last Hope (DDiLH) was the perfect choice for SotDL noobs like us. Not only because there is a lot of suggestions on how you might run things, but the adventure its [...]

A very impressive adventure for a group of 0-level characters. I cannot say enough good things about the non-linear design of this scenario, with a number of interesting things going on in different places at the same time, leading to a lot of variety [...]

If you are GM'ing this game for the first time and want some help with the first adventure, this is what you need. Even if you don't use the adventure the supplement is worth for all the advice and guidelines it gives about running the first adventure [...]

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.
