Bentos Charge


BENTO'S CHARGE will be Phil Stone's 5th module that he has written and illustrated. It will be his FIRST for a kickstarter and module design for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons.
Phil Stone has been a full time freelance illustrator for publishers such as KOBOLD PRESS, PELGRANE PRESS, and TRIPLE ACE GAMES to name a few. When he is not working on specific projects for several publishers, he is writing and illustrating his own modules.

This is a one shot module that is rich in story and background. It gives the DM a full history of little Bento and his current situation so that a multitude of scenarios can be played out by the characters. Outside of the storyline, there is a sandbox of options to be had for players to explore, and the DM to exploit.

The party has been lost in the woods for some time now, (why? because it's a one-shot module and that's how things usually go in this type of situation). There is no sense of direction as the canopy of the deep woods have cut off the majority of sunlight. The region is foreign and so are the sounds that emanate all around, somehow always at a confusing distance. (It's really not that confusing though, it's danger that the party is sensing, also wandering monsters, lots of wandering monsters).
A small trail has been picked up and it seems wise to follow it since all other options have departed. Somehow this trail seems like a safety net against those creatures lurking unseen around the party. A foreseeable encounter or encounters is distinctly possible, and it is not going to be a good one. It seems best to stick to this little trail. (Not only is the trail safe haven for lost travelers, but a plot hook as well! Crafty!!!)

There are two main objectives for this escapade that can be attained once finishing the quest. First is the experience. This module is set for character levels 1 – 5 and the encounters within will provide enough experience to gain levels for future campaigns. Secondly is the alignment play and a chance to roleplay the newly formed characters to flesh out how they would react to certain situations and decisions made though the interactions in this book.
Most of all throughout this little episode, the party needs to have fun with it. There are a multitude of endings that can be played out here as different characters will have different reactions to the situations presented.

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.
