Scenario Description:

The village of Ritupis hasn’t had a church in nearly a hundred years (not since “The Burning”). Recently, a charismatic new priest has arrived in town, and he has grand ambitions to rebuild it. Unfortunately, a curse borne of the town’s troubled past is coming back to haunt the construction project—each night the work done the previous day is undone, and the materials are found strewn about Witch Meadow the following morning. This town could use some heroes.

There are several plot layers to this adventure.  The surface layers can be solved with swords, but the deeper layers reward thoughtful and emotionally engaged play. 


  • A gazetteer of the town of Ritupis, complete with local legends and rumors, side quests, and a cast of memorable NPCs.  
  • New spells
  • New monsters

Ritupis can easily be placed in any back country location with an appropriately isolated population that is at least somewhat superstitious, making it easy to incorporate into nearly any setting. 

This product was inspired in part by research in medieval British church lore.

Print Version Note:

The Black & White version and the Color version are the same except that in the color version the art will be printed in grayscale instead of pure black.  Both versions are black & white illustrations.

The adventure is built for 4-6th level 2nd edition characters, but the focus is on problem solving and interactions more than combat, and it is easily transferrable into any other edition or character level range. I especially like the contingen [...]

Having read many modules It is easy to spot cliches and over-used tropes, luckily this module avoids the cliche and only touches on the tropes that drive a good story. The NPCs seem genuine and not simply paper cutouts, and the core adventure has enoug [...]

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.
