Escape the Noose - Adventure for Zweihander RPG


Can you make it out of Nuess alive, and Escape the Noose!?

Escape the Noose is set in the context of historical events known as the War of Cologne, or the Seneschal’s War. The adventure begins with the characters finding themselves trapped in the fallen city of Neuss on the Rhine river.

Neuss was once famous for repelling previous attempts to storm her walls; however, this time her garrison is surrounded—and outnumbered—by a host of Spanish and Italian soldiers with cannons.

This adventure is designed for Basic Tier characters; however, it can be easily made more difficult for Intermediate Tier play by adding extra soldiers to encounters, increasing the rate of
cannon fire at escape vessels, or increasing the difficulty rating of skill rolls due to smoke, rubble, toil and other trouble.

This adventure also contains:

  • Historical background for the Siege of Nuess
  • A short bestiary detailing new foes
  • Adventure seeds for further escapades in 16th Century Cologne
  • Nuess city maps
*Hear the adventure played on the Nights of the Shed podcast!

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.
