2013 PATHMASTER GOLD MEDAL

by Michael Allen

A Pathfinder adventure for 4-5 level 7 characters

The very land rises up against the PCs as they hike deep into country cursed by the ferocity of an ancient evil. Whilst retracing the route of a bygone army to recover a lost artifact, the party discovers that nightmares, monsters, and Nature itself strive to bar the way. Will the adventurers overcome their deepest fears to triumph, or do they lack the courage, skill and perseverance to walk the dark road?

Also included in “To Walk the Dark Road”:

  • A wilderness trek that will challenge the PCs survival skills and overland travel expertise.

  • Three new magic items (flayed feet of the druid, hands of the druid and mask of the druid) that test the limits of what risks your PCs are willing to take for power and embody the darkness of the road on which they travel.

  • A minor artifact, the Tear of the Mother, that may provide seeds for further adventures.

  • Adventure Hooks for parties of all alignments, with multiple options to resolve the fate of the Tear of the Mother.

  • Suggestions and tips on building suspense and controlling the pace of the adventure, with notes on how to handle parties of 6 or more or those of slightly higher APLs.

Format
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.
