The Serpent Amphora 5e Quickstart

Suggested Price $4.95

The Serpent Amphora 5e Quickstart is an introductory adventure for 5th Edition fantasy in the Scarred Lands setting. This adventure contains all the information you will need to run the game, including the basic rules the Game Master, or GM, will use to adjudicate combat, survival, and any challenges the player characters, or PCs, encounter throughout the story.

Characters are provided with this packet which have been generated using the 5e core rules and the Scarred Lands Player’s Guide for 5e. These characters are presented at the 1st level of experience and guidelines are provided for increasing their abilities and traits as the heroes increase in level. The included characters are designed to showcase some of the unique races and backgrounds introduced in the Scarred Lands Player’s Guide for 5e.

Between the pre-built characters and the included rules, all you will need in addition to this book is some pencils, some dice, and a bit of imagination!

The Serpent Amphora 5e Quickstart includes:

  • A ready to play adventure set in the Scarred Lands
  • The basic rules for 5th Edition OGL Fantasy
  • Dozens of spells and monsters
  • Five ready-made characters, inspired by the Scarred Lands novel Vigilant: Through Shadows and Dreams so you can start playing right away
  • Optional battle maps to be used for online play or print and play with minis
  • A complete package of the InDesign file (minus cover) for other community creators so you can create YOUR OWN Slarecian Vault materials with the included items

The Serpent Amphora was originally released for 3rd Edition OGL in 2001. This adventure reimagines and converts that story for 5e while including all you need to begin play right away. Watch for conversions of the rest of the Serpent Amphora Cycle, coming soon to Slarecian Vault!

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.
