The Graveyard Shift

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

The city of Stonewood has seen a number of strange disturbances of late: grave robbings, disappearances, and recently a spate of murders. Adair Wyatt, a local merchant, has asked you to help him find his missing brother Dayton. His last known whereabouts? Stonewood's necropolis, where he works as a gravedigger...

The Graveyard Shift is an introductory adventure for 4-6 1st level characters, and  assumes a wide range of skills and abilities. It is designed to be played in a single 3-5 hour session, excluding character creation. The adventure centers on the city of Stonewood but can easily be transferred to any medium or large settlement as long as there is a graveyard nearby and access to a local forest. The adventure was designed to have an equal balance of combat, exploration, puzzle, and role-playing encounters.

The Graveyard Shift is the first in the Adventure on Tap series. Each adventure is created to make running the game as simple as possible for the Games Master and features a clear and easy to read layout, hand drawn full colour maps of each major location (including player safe versions), at-a-glance difficulty markers for combat encounters, appendices featuring extra locations and NPCs, and advice on running your party through the trickiest parts of the adventure, gleaned from extensive playtesting. A printer friendly version of the adventure PDF is also included.

You can find the second in the Adventures on Tap series, The Beast of Bastion Bayhere.

I ran this for my players as a one-shot today and it went great, though my players definitely took it off the rails to places I didn't expect; still, there's enough information provided in this adventure to help a DM improv if that happens. A++ layout [...]

Fun adventure, especially for newer/new to the system players as it runs the gamut from combat to social to investigative to skill challenges and puzzles. In-built use of environmental hazards/features are a nice way to encourage players to think later [...]

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.

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.
