Shackled City AP pdf?


Shackled City Adventure Path


Are there any plans to release the SCAP hardcover in pdf? I have the hardcover, and it is great, but having it in electronic form would be really helpful as well.

Over my summer holidays, I am planning on converting the Shackled City Ap to a 4th Edition Eberron campaign. This obviously involves a great deal o changes to the AP as written, dropping some sections, adding others, and extending the level range all the way to 30.

After all that, it is very likely the final AP will have probably only superficial resemblance to the Hard Cover (which I have). As such, my plan is to put not just my changes, but everything I need to run the AP into a Word Document, and run from that, and not worry about the hard cover.

To do that, instead of typing up everything from scratch, it would be much easier to cut and paste from the pdf and then edit from there. (Not to mention it would be good to have the maps and other art in the doc).

Now, I'm pretty sure a pdf of the Hardcover is a no go.

However, as a next best option, I would be willing to just buy the in individual Dungeon mags in pdf format (I think I already have a couple of them). Assuming I did go this route, how much do the Dungeon Mags differ from the hardcover? Is the background and other info summarized anywhere, or was that collated (and developed?) just for the hardcover?

Paizo no longer has the license to publish Dungeon material, including the adventure paths. Hence why there is no hardcover of Age of Worms or Savage Tide. They also cannot release PDFs of the Dungeon and Dragon issues they did not get to before the expiration of the license. As for the differences between the hardcover and magazines, I can't say for certain as I haven't looked too closely at it.


I hear there are some differences between the magazines and the hardcover (which I have). There may even be details around here somewhere?

Sounds like an epic job you've set for yourself. I don't play 4E, but it would be great if you could split the task over several DM's. However you get it done, if you manage to make it available, it will be quite the legacy!

Have you tried using google to see if another retailer is offering a pdf version of this adventure path?


The AP in the magazine is less complete, information is spread along the 12 parts and links are hard sometimes to follow if you don't read everything and get added information on pdf from the site.
There is no "Drakthar way" adventure in the magazine, no table to level up the npc....the hardcover (which I don't own) is more accurate and a real improvement of the magazine.

Believe me, I recognise the size of the task i have set myself. But, I have 3 months off over the summer, what else am i going to do? (Beside revise/ learn greek and hebrew and read 500+ pages of Calvin's theology?)

I have already done most of the work of converting it to Eberron (in preparation for running it in 3.5), so it is basically the conversion to 4th ed this time. Once it is all done, I hope to be able to share it. Just need to work out how to do it without treading on Paizo's toes too much.

Greek and hebrew? Good for you! I'll never speak either, but I've recently been reading lots of A.N. Wilson and Chris Hedges...anyway...

Your project reminds me of a recent CD release. I think there were too many collaborators involved for copyright issues to be sorted out. In the end the artist released a nice package containing a blank CD...
Maybe your project could be a celebration of the end of the 'edition wars' and the good faith of paizo and wotc could be harnessed? No? No.
