Castles & Crusades Thorns for Beer

Watermarked PDF

Thorns for Beer is an encounter area for 3-5 characters in the mid-level range. It is designed as a plug and play encounter; either run by itself for a few hours of fun or as an encounter inserted into an ongoing campaign. It includes 2 pages of information on the village of Willowbreak, and a 2 page adventure.

Thorns for Beer finds the characters on a forest track heading for the village of Willowbreak. Here they discover the local tavern keeper, Greely Ironpot, has gone missing and his tavern mysteriously closed. All this after he cursed the river god! The mystery is their's to solve! To win the undying friendship of the tavern keeper and town, or pass on leaving them all to their fate.

Thorns for Beer is part of an ongoing series of encounter areas, Adventures on the Powder River. Thorns for Beer is a follow on to the To the Damenheit Bridge encounter area, picking up upon the Willowbreak Way track. The village itself is portable to any locale but is designed for use in the Darkenfold Forest. The encounter area serves as a good base of operations for the Adventures on the Powder River series, or as a place and play for one night’s use.

3D Terrain pieces from Fat Dragon Games are perfect for the overland adventures in the forest:

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.
