The Maiden of Iasgairen has gone missing, kidnapped by dark forces!

The constable suspects ‘tis the work of a band of scurrilous pirates!

They’ve placed a bounty on the head of the young warrior maiden.

Can you rescue her and become “The Heroes of Iasgairen”?

Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

In this adventure the party is called on to solve the mystery of the disappearance of the Shield Maiden of Iasgairen. The young woman, whose given name is Eimhear Iskara, is the leader of her fishing community which lies along the sea on the southern coast of The Red Eagle Barony. Living as far as they do from the capitol of their nation, these hearty sea folk are vulnerable to attack: the Shield Maiden is a symbol of bravery and self reliance to her people. She has valiantly led her folk, thwarting pirate invasions along this coast.

Because of her opposition to their plans, the pirate captains who prowl these waters placed a bounty on her head, offering a huge amount for anyone who brought her to them alive; their plan being to torture her and gain information on the Barony’s forces before killing her, and displaying her broken body to intimidate the villagers. The merciless pirate known as Pegleg Peggy, feared by sailors and fishermen throughout this Realm, decided to claim that bounty and has kidnapped the Maiden. A local fisherman spied one of Peggy’s goons heading back to their hideout: an old smugglers den hidden beneath a natural cave system in the wooded area near to Iasgairen. Peggy is expecting to make the exchange shortly: one day after the players arrive in town. So if there is any hope of saving the Shield Maiden, the players will have to strike quickly!

This supplement contains a completely original ONE SHOT adventure, fully detailed and ready for immediate use with very little preparation by the GM or the players! A quick night of role-playing fun right at your fingertips

Inside you will find great Old-school art and completely detailed maps in the Old School blue & white style, with detailed encounters for each area! This module also includes a fully detailed map of The Red Eagle Barony done in the Old School style, and complete with information on geography, local settlements, defenses, and areas for further exploration.

This adventure includes a carefully crafted set of SIX PREGENERATED CHARACTERS, ready for immediate use in the game by players or the GM. Each of the six players is presented fully ready to play with all of the necessary stats and gear. As a BONUS, these PCs are specially laid out so the GM can simply print out the page, cut out the sheets, hand them out and the players will be ready to go with their own handy mini character sheet!

This module provides wonderful background information and additional areas for adventure for those GM’s setting their campaigns in the author’s ever expanding campaign world, which now comprises four different kingdoms: Jarlburgh, Alderburgh, The Red Eagle Barony, and Dún Loachas. This adventure takes place on the coast, due south from the village of Ballycraobh, the starting point for the Starry Knight Press module SO3 Wycked Summons; it lies southeast of the village of Breyburgh, the site of the module S3 The Way O’ The Fae; and it lies southwest of the Barrow Mound of Inara Marteen from the module SO1 Eternal Knight. (all available for purchase on DrivethruRPG).

This book features 20 pages of excitement and thrills, with players facing some of the mightiest of foes, and it is sure to please discerning GMs and players everywhere!

AS AN ADDED BONUS, as a purchaser of one of my modules you also get, ABSOLUTELY FREE, a copy of my Old School RPG zone, CAVALIER ATTITUDE!!

Finally, I would like to acknowledge that this is my twelfth book released this year, a challenging goal I set myself and one which I do not think I could have met without the support of my patrons here. Thank you for your support of Starry Knight Press!

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.
