Brookhayven Needs Heroes

Will You Answer The Call To Adventure?

Our team of DeepDark Designers are excited to bring you The Beast of Brookhayven, our latest offering hot off the digital presses for use with the 5e OGL ruleset and the materials that can be found for free online in SRD 5.1Within this 34-page adventure module, you'll find the town of Brookhayven. An usually quiet, backwater town that's currently gripped in the throes of fear and superstition. A terrible monster, known only as The Beast, has made the farmsteads and landholdings that surround the settlement its hunting grounds - and Brookhayven has seen an influx of refuges seeking shelter from the nightmarish monster as a result. However, despite the far-reaching consequences of its sinister presence, not all that much is known about The Beast. It falls to the PCs to investigate the nefarious being, learn more of its true nature, hunt it down, and, ultimately, slay it; all while contending with a terrified populace and a baron whose given himself over to madness, as well as discovering the true nature of a mysterious figure rumoured to be working alongside The Beast. All in a day's work.

The Beast of Brookhayven provides adventuring materials for a 3rd-level party of 3-5 PCs and should see them to 4th-level by its conclusion. It offers optional and modular content, numerous suggestions for expanding on the adventure and really making it your own, and enough materials for 2-6 sessions, depending on how rust your players are at monster slaying. The Beast of Brookhayven provides a standalone experience that doesn't require any other adventures or a lot exposition to make sense of its narrative, although it also pressents an opportunity to be combined with another upcoming adventure by DeepDark Designs that's being developed for PCs of 1st to 3rd-level; 'Woes of the Whispering Tree'. Additionally,  The Beast of Brookhayven is also suitable for use with most fantasy settings and makes few assumptions on the part of the game master. Best of all, the entire product is provided in a variety of formats, including 'standard', 'printer-friendly', and 'super printer-friendly' - so that you can make the most of it at your table.

The Beast of Brookhayven is also available in physical print as part of a compendium that collates the two other adventure anthology modules (Woes of the Whispering Tree & Trouble at Grimhallow Manor).

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.
