Watermarked PDF


A Halloween One-Shot Adventure
Compatible with Most Fantasy RPG systems
Recommended for 4-6 player characters of levels 4 to 6 

A sudden downpour forces you to seek shelter at Foggybottom Manor.
While the manor seems inviting, you soon discover all is not what it seems.
An evil being has kidnapped the family’s children as part of an ancient curse!
Can you defeat the creature, rescue the children and save the day?

Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

This is a holiday themed one-shot module designed for use as an evening’s worth of adventuring on Samhain, or as it is better known in the modern world, Halloween. It's a dark & stormy night, & your party seeks refuge at venerable Foggybottom Manor. All is not as it seems, however, & you find yourself involved in a quest to rescue your hosts' kidnapped children from the clutches of an ancient Fae creature known as The Pumpkin Man!

The adventure in this module takes place in and around Willowston a halfling village located in a heavily wooded area of The Dales, a large land mass in the author’s campaign world comprising a large fertile valley surrounded on all four sides by nearly impenetrable mountains. The Dales is the ancestral home of the halfling, gnome and dwarven races on this world.

The manor house where the action occurs is situated 3 miles outside the village, along a trade route. The events herein occur on the evening of Samhain, when the veil between this world and the next is thin and it is easier for beings from the Other Side to cross over into ours.

This supplement contains a completely original HOLIDAY ONE SHOT adventure, which was written as a sort of interactive ghost story told by the GM and the players! There is a good deal of exposition as the GM sets the mood for this otherworldly adventure!! This module was written for and works best with a group of 4 to 6 player characters of 4th to 6th level. The entire module should be playable in one evening of play.

Inside you will find great Old-school art and detailed maps: including a map of Foggybottom Manor; dungeon map with keyed encounters for each area; and a fully detailed Old School world map of The Dales, with information for further exploration. Many nights of role-playing fun in this new territory are right at your fingertips!

This adventure provides further details on the exciting new expansion to the author’s campaign world, further opening up the homeland of the small folk to adventures with you players. The Dales, along with the nations of Alderburgh, Jarlburgh, Dùn Bhriste and The Red Eagle Barony, now brings the author’s camping world to five separate nation states to explore!

This book features 20 pages of excitement and thrills, and this spooky adventure is sure to be a hit with discerning GMs and players celebrating Samhain, All Hallows Eve and/or Halloween!

As an ADDED BONUS, as a purchaser of one of my modules you also get, ABSOLUTELY FREE, a copy of the inaugural issue of my Old School RPG zone, CAVALIER ATTITUDE!!

The best part of all is that in honour of my Halloween and Samhain, this module, which retails for $7.50, si available for only $5.00 for the next week (thru Nov. 7)!!

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.
