Tales from the Road


Tales from the road is a series of four short adventures, each should take approximately 1-2 hours to play though. Each short adventure can be played separately as a short ‘one-shot’ adventure, or they can be easily dropped into an existing campaign as a break in the action; a reprive between major story beats in your world. If you, as a GM, don’t have enough material to cover a whole session, or if you want your players to level up but need to give them just a bit more XP, these short adventures are for you.

Each of these adventures takes place on the road, and are designed to be small diversions between major adventures. So, if the players have just raided a dungeon and are on the three-day journey back to town to sell their goods, feel free to run The Haunting of Watchtower 30. If the players have just put down an evil rebellion threatening the good king, perhaps they run into The Sect of the One Master while they are on their weeklong journey to tell the king that the job is done.

Each adventure is not set in a specific locale, so it should be easy to drop them into any campaign. For example, the first adventure The Sect of the One Master could easily take place anywhere there could be a temple to Irori. ‘Meralia Bryant, Teen Detective’ could be set in an Inn anywhere that is on a major trade road between two large cities.
Additionally, while all of these short adventures are designed for level 1 characters, there will be a small section at the end that will show you a quick and easy way to level up each adventure so that they can be modified to be used at any level.

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.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. 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. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
