Danger Floats Above!

After a successful adventure in the Goblin Badlands, the heroes retire to the town of Meridor to rest and recreate. That plan falls apart when the heroes are roused out of bed in the wee hours of the morning by the Mayor. A floating fortress has appeared over the town square, the likes of which have never been seen before. The fortress is motionless, save for the curls of black smoke rising off of the battlements. There are faint sounds of battle coming from above. Why is it here? What is its purpose? What is inside? The townsfolk are scared, and the Mayor needs someone to find out what is going on. There will be time later for ale and merriment, because the Dangerous Space Jail awaits.

Dangerous Space Jail is a Dungeon World adventure for 2-5 players. It was designed to be run as a one-shot adventure or as part of a campaign. The adventure utilizes unique mechanics to simulate a race against time. In addition there is ample advice to help GMs run as written or hack the adventure to their own style of play.

When I run this, and I have run it about 10 times now. I always start the players at Level 1. There is advice in the book about when to allow the players to level up during the adventure as well.

If you have players that have a few levels already, that wont be an issue. Worst case you can adjust the amount of opposition in the scenes, something that the book covers as well.

Is anybody else having trouble viewing the layers in the Countdown Timer pdf? I don't see any. Tried using Acrobat Pro XI, Acrobat Reader 10, and FoxIt PDF Reader; all of which have layer support.

I just did a quick check in the Adobe Reader XI (Windows) of the timer. I was able to use the sidebar for showing the layers (the two squares over each other) and it shows a list of layers from 8Gems to Base. To remove the gems you remove layer 8Gems first and then 7Gems, etc. I will check it out with FoxIt in a moment.

I just checked it in FoxIT 7.0.6 and the layers are present under the Layer tab (three parallelograms). They work the same start from 8Gems and move down to 1Gem.

I'm using FoxIT 7.0.6 as well. The problem I am having is that there are no layers in the layers tab to manipulate. I've included pictures of both. I redownloaded the file again today to triple check it wasn't corrupted during download. I don't understand how it can work for you but not for me when we have identical software and download source.

Acrobat v11.0.0

FoxIT v7.0.6

I think I figured this out. Sorry for the confusion. The watermarking process appears to obliterate the layers. I will work with DriveThru to fix that.

In the meantime, please download the PDF from the Encoded Website:

See if that works.

I had the pleasure of playing this as a one-shot Dungeon World adventure at The Queen City Conquest Conference in Buffalo, NY a few months ago (September, 2014). This adventure incorporates a great time-limit mechanic that adds an intense nail biting aspect to its rich environment. As a group we were successful by the narrowest of margins - just as doom was about to fall.
It was great as a one-shot, and would certainly play equally fine as a module in an on-going campaign.

After playing this at Queen City Conquest, I had to own it.

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.
