High Price of Love

High Price of Love


A three-step adventure set in Montaigne.

HIGH PRICE is planned as a two-part story, but can be fit into a single night. Blended with the personal storylines of your players or with Steps in your Campaign Story, it can run over three nights.

In glittering Charouse, courtly lovers carrying rich presents to their beloved are being waylaid, robbed, and badly injured.  The robbers have an uncanny foreknowledge of their victims' gifts and routes, and a disturbing talent for escaping the law.  As robberies with violence escalate to murder, it becomes clear that the city needs Heroes.

HIGH PRICE includes two downloadable PDFs: a 10-page adventure and a 6-page document for player characters, including 5 pre-generated characters for a quick start to your game.

Inspired by ETA Hoffmann’s “Mademoiselle de Scudéry.

An excellent two session story designed for a group that hates staying on the rails. Descriptive language; interesting plot, and no rails. There are alternate plot points, events, and characters for just about anything your players can think [...]

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.
