Heya folks! Been working hard on The Secret of Forsaken Peak today, so sorry I’ve been quiet. Anyways, JD and I just outlined the requirements for this big ol’ book we’re doing.
The format is based loosely on the new Dungeon of the Mad Mage book (not the story, mind you, just seeing how big poppa WotC organizes their stuff). Here is the rough breakdown of what to expect:
|Art Requirements||Writing Requirements|
|Book Section||Full Page||1/2 Page||1/4 Page||Areas||Monsters||Misc||Est Word Ct||Page Ct|
|Part 1: The Forsaken Peak|
|Castle of Chaos Main Entry + Battlements||1||1||25||4750||5|
|Castle of Chaos Ridge Entry||1||20||4000||4|
Lost Temple + Lost Temple Crypts
|Pool of the Mind Slugs||1||25||4750||5|
Ruined Dwarven Outpost + Front Gate
|The Labyrinth of Yule||1||25||4750||5|
|Dwarven Road Ruins||1||1||25||4750||5|
|Beast Man Cave||1||20||4000||4|
|Mud Man Temple||1||20||4000||4|
|Flooded Caves & Sewers||1||20||4000||4|
|Labyrinth of Thorns||1||25||4750||5|
|Slug Palace of Gorgoloth||1||1||25||4750||5|
|Slug Palace Dungeon||1||25||4750||5|
|The Bubbling Slug Pits||1||25||4750||5|
|Part 2: The Eastern Borderlands||1|
|Appendix A: Monsters|
|Appendix B: Player Options|
|Appendix C: Magic Items/Spells||20|
I expect about a 50% adjustment on the final word count and page count, too, so we’re probably looking at close to 200,000 words and over 300 pages, so roughly the same size as a normal Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition book.
Of course, all of this will change and grow as more and more material comes out and we start pushing for the Gleam campaign.
Let me know what you think down in the comments.
If you haven’t already…
Be sure to sign up for the Secret of Forsaken Peak mailing list. You’ll get the first part of the dungeon, the Goblin Mine, sent to you.

Will this be available as a physical copy. I want this as a hardcover book that I can place next to my 5e books
It sure will!
