Expedition to Undermountain is a page super-adventure that revisits the greatest dungeon in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. Located beneath the city of Waterdeep, Undermountain has lured countless heroes to their doom. This book is designed to let a DM turn Undermountain into a longterm campaign setting, so it provides lore, plot hooks, and details about the power groups who clash for control of Undermountain.

Consider yourself warned. Expedition to Undermountain gives a side-view cutaway map of the complex, something that has been conspicuously missing in previous Undermountain products. The town of Spiderhaven is one of these, as is Belkram's Fall.
There's also a reasonable argument that the maps of several areas are smaller than they should be, making it a bit difficult to track PC progress through the underground settlements.
Where's the Earth-Shattering Kaboom? Due to the nature of the beast, the DM has extensive freedom to customize his adventures within the framework that this book provides. PCs have so many options on where to go and how to explore that providing a single scripted ending would be difficult.
Yet even with lots of fun, exciting smaller encounters detailed within each area, DMs may want to think forward to crafting this sort of emotional and deadly conclusion to their PCs' adventures.

Original electronic 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. 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.
