Great one-shot and easy to use guide

Just ran this tonight and it was a blast. I made some slight changes for flavor but otherwise largely kept it the same.

The only reason I removed one star was because, other than the numbers, the guide doesn’t explicitly state which area is where. For example, it’ll say there are two doors, one north and one south, but without looking at the numbered map (which I accidentally didn’t print), it’s not clear where those doors lead because the subsequent rooms will just have the number that’s on the map. It’s also not always clear when stairs lead up or down. Would be good to have just a little extra support in the guide so you don’t have to refer to the map all the time.

What I loved about this module though was that it gave me plenty of flexibility so that I could adapt it to the story I had in mind.

This is the one.

First purchase from arcane library but definitely will buy more. Very user friendly and would be top recommendation for first time dm. The PDFs has links to spells and abilities. They also include a video over view. Story was great and my party really enjoyed it, although they really hate statues now. Definitely worth running as a one shot or supplement to a campaign.

A fun adventure, well-organized, easily portable

I ran this adventure for my family and we all had a good time! Like all Arcane Library adventures, this one is organized and efficient in it's presentation, providing just enough detail on locations and NPCs, while leaving room for improvisation and embellishment. Theres a good balance of exploration, traps & puzzles, social encounters, and combat. The only problem was that my all-too-clever players skipped a lot of the locations, and missed out on most of the lore explaining who the Ras-Godai are and what they want. I was able to fill them in a bit with the NPC Amara, but they never even met the Oni, Janu!
I re-skinned the adventure a bit for the Elemental Chaos theme of our campaign (which includes a healthy dose of Wild Magic for extra entertainment) and swapped out the final boss battle with something more appropriate for my party's size, and they barely escaped with their lives!

Please keep it up! Loving everything so far.

Holy crap, I expected a PDF with a decent adventure (I bought three). I did not expect the effort The Arcane Library put into their digital products.
Having a printable version of the PDF as well as combat cards and maps in multiple formats and versions is a wonderful surprise for me as a DM.
