This deluxe adventure takes heroes into the ruins of Gardmore Abbey, a monastery that was once the base of a militant order of paladins devoted to Bahamut. According to legend, the paladins brought a dark artifact back from a far crusade and stored it in their abbey for safekeeping, and evil forces gathered to assault the abbey and take it back. This adventure brings characters into the extensive dungeons beneath the ruins - dungeons that are warped and twisted with the raw forces of Chaos surrounding the cards of the deck.

It was published in September Continuing the 4e Adventures. But then Essentials happened and afterward Wizards of the Coast totally revamped their 4e line. Madness at Gardmore Abbey was thus published as a boxed set albeit, a very flimsy box. It contained four page booklets and a variety of other doodads. It detailed the ruins of a monastery that had been brought down by a "dark artifact".

Wyatt decided that the artifact was the infamous Deck of Many Things … and went from there. The Secret Siege. It revealed the historic downfall of the Abbey, long before the events of Madness.

Though it was set chronologically earlier, "Siege" was actually written after Madness , building upon the many historic details that Townshend included in his encounters. Components: A Miscellany. Because it was a boxed set, Madness at Gardmore Abbey was able to include a variety of components. Components: In the Cards. A physical deck had been published once before, as an insert in Dragon August Now it was reappearing in a new form as a heroic-level artifact.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Deck's use in Madness is that cards are drawn to determine specific elements of the adventure, such as who the villain is. This was an old trick first used by Tracy Hickman in classic adventures such as I6: "Ravenloft" and Dragonlance , but it hadn't been seen in quite a while when it made a return in Madness.

Adventure Tropes. Madness at Gardmore Abbey kept to that format but rather impressively used it to create a sandbox adventure, resulting in a very innovative 4e module. Madness pulls off this trick with the use of patrons who give out quests. In fact, two of the four adventure books focus on patrons, rivals, and the physical details of the Abbey, creating a sandbox full of options.

The Encounters then fit into that sandbox, as the players choose the particular directions that they want to explore. However, the sandboxing of Madness goes deeper than a set of patron-quests.

When Wyatt wrote out his order for the Encounters, he told his designers that he didn't want a "combat slog", but instead a "mix of combat, roleplaying, and skill challenges". Thus, Madness is one of the most varied of all the 4e adventures, even within the constraints of individual encounters. Thus, Gardmore Abbey is filled with encounters that could be solved in many ways — not just with combat.

Expanding the Points of Light. Townshend says that his intent was to "evoke a sense of awe and of loss" by carefully revealing what was now gone, something that he was able to expand upon when he wrote "The Siege of Gardmore Abbey". Love It or Hate It? Madness at Gardmore Abbey may have been the best-loved adventure of the 4e era.

Future History. There was one more 4e super-adventure, Halls of Undermountain It was intended to be a box too, just like Gardmore Abbey , but … stuff happened. About the Creators. Wyatt was a long-time employee of Wizards of the Coast. He wrote the overall design of Madness at Gardmore Abbey while he handed off the encounters to his designers.

Bought this product for one only reason: to print out the deck of many things i like the art of William O'Connor a lot , but unfortunately the resolution provided in the PDF is horrible. What items are included in this PDF? Are the maps, tokens, dungeon tiles and cards included? Does the pdf contain printable formats for of the cards of the Deck of Many Things? There is an issue with book 3.

When viewed on a mobile or IOS device the white background turns dark brown and makes it unreadable. The same problem occurs if you print the book out. Yeah, but it's 4e Wiz should convert them all to 5e, then we're talking! See All Ratings and Reviews.

Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher. 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.

Ravenloft , Isle of Dread , and many others were among my favorites. As far as 4E adventures go, my favorite was Cairn of the Winter King. But having run my players through several sessions of Madness at Gardmore Abbey , I am of the opinion that it is easily the best 4E adventure, and compares favorably to such beloved classics as Keep on the Borderlands and Tomb of Horrors. Here are six reasons why Madness at Gardmore Abbey is great.
