The Harvest

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the small town of Surrey, Massachusetts. It’s a little community with less than 3000 people. Most people leave the town for college and never return. Surrey’s lasting population is made up of everyone else—those who never left.

It’s the fall of 1987, a beautiful time of year in Surrey. The leaves change color, and the air has a little nip on it. This year feels a bit colder than usual, though. The adults seem to recall a similar chill gripping the town when they were kids, but they don’t remember much else about back then.

Children have returned to school. Some, however, seem to have disappeared and the most unsettling part is that the town seems to not even notice. Every day, another child or two disappear. Families become distraught. Then, within a day or two, they seem to just go on with their lives, forgetting they even had a child.

The disappearances seem to have begun about the time that the annual Harvest Fair began. The farmers bring their crops to the fair, which has all sorts of enticements: candy, rides, sideshows, clowns, and more. Children have claimed to see a circus ringmaster on the outskirts of town. Adults don’t pay any attention to these rumors, considering them figments of the kids’ imaginations.

You’ve seen him, though. He calls himself Metzger. He wears a long-tailed jacket, pantaloons, and a top hat. His words are welcoming, yet he fills you with fear.

“Fall is harvest time,” he barks, “and you reap what you sow, kid.” You reap what you sow.

"The Harvest" is a playset for Home by Dark.

Hello, Mike D!

Is there a chance that you may have downloaded another product from your library? If not, there is probably some corruption in the PDF that you downloaded.

The PDF is currently 518 kb. We just confirmed with a re-download from DriveThruRPG.

I'd recommend attempting to re-download it. If it continues to give you guff, please contact DriveThruRPG support and they should be able to help you with the issue!

We hope you enjoy it once the issues are resolved!

Thanks for your very fast reply Jason, all is sorted. My error (Firefox not terribly clever at what it claims to be downloading, I 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.
