A Baker’s Dozen of Rumours (And The Truth Behind Them)


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

Characters will often ask around for rumours and information. Sometimes this information will be relevant to the matter at hand, sometimes it will not.

This is a collection of thirteen different detailed rumours that characters could discover. If the characters just listen to the rumour, that will be all, but each also comes with a description of the truth behind the rumour. Characters can find out more information from different people if they look into things.

The rumours can be used as simple background colour or developed into fully-fledged adventure hooks.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

The rumours are as follows:

  • The Ship of Spies
  • The Secret of Nam’Gar
  • Black Sails and Bloody Currents
  • The Murder Mine
  • The Witch of Watershed
  • Bounty of The Bloody Cardinal
  • The Face of The Black Judge
  • The Wayward Son
  • False Gallows
  • Smoke and Fire
  • Face of The Story
  • The Wizard Alshamus
  • A Truer Hero

One page is the front cover and one the front matter.

The supplement is also available as Pathfinder and Fifth Edition compatible versions. You do not need all three versions.

Well written. A good helping hand for DMs to help get players interested in a setting. Good for one shots or even worked into longer running campaigns with minimal tweaking. [...]

Well done! The scenarios are well thought out and written, with the obvious "truth" and then the back story that reveals "the rest of the story." A creative way to enliven any game! [...]

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.
