The Butcher of Alcross (5e)

Watermarked PDF

"It was a breeze to DM and really fun to play - immervise too!"

The Butcher of Alcross is a short adventure suitable for characters of levels 4. You can run this module any time the PCs happen to be traveling on a lonely moorland road—for example, after the characters visit the ruins of Kennmouth in the Chapel on the Cliffs, on the road between Alcross and Hather Bay.

Something strange is going in the Williams farm. It’s cold, raining, and nighttime, and Helen is still in the Northern Pasture. Red Tom, aka the Butcher of Alcross, is out there, and the Williams are anxious to see their daughter come home… Will your characters find her before it’s too late? Or has it already happened?

In this adventure, you will find:

  • 15 pages of content
  • 2 to 3 hours of gameplay
  • New monsters never seen before
  • Beautiful color art by Raluca Marinescu
  • A full color map of the Williams Farm
  • Digital maps for your virtual tabletop

Hi, Another good product. The only request I will make is for a players map without the grid as it makes it much easier to use with a Virtual Tabletop like Fantasy Grounds or Roll 20.

The grid is 150 px per square. It should align with virtual tabletop grid. I can upload a gridless version, though.

If you could that would be appreciated. Gridless is essential for Fantasy Grounds as you add your own grid and they never seam to align.
Hope you are busy writing.

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.
