Mists of Akuma: Revenge of the Pale Master (Shadow of the Demon Lord)

Selected Option:

Shadow of the Demon Lord adventure for four to six PCs of 8th-10th level set in the Mists of Akuma campaign setting.

Please note: If you have the core Mists of Akuma book, you already have this adventure! You can still grab the PDF to get the extra maps and see the module in full color, but it otherwise does not contain any new content.

Revenge of the Pale Master plunges the adventurers into the rusted heart of the industrial city of Kizaki on the eve of a great evil’s reawakening. At its heart lies a mystery, and GMs running this module are encouraged to build tension and an aura of danger as the PCs uncover the secret history that casts a long shadow upon the future of this settlement in Gekido Prefecture. Part of the adventure’s tension is based upon the ticking clock—the party arrives as night falls on the eve before the Festival of Falling Hawks, giving them less than 24 hours to uncover the truth and take action against those they believe to be the villains of the story.

What's inside Revenge of the Pale Master:

  • The story of the Pale Master and his most recent machinations in the eastern fantasy noir steampunk lands of Soburin
  • The continental map of Soburin by Michael McCarthy
  • Dozens of NPCs and oni that play a part in the adventure (as well as several that don't so the GM can insert their own stories and subplots)
  • Lots and lots of maps: the city of Kizaki, the Oyami Tea House, Graveyard of the Damned, and more

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.
