The Haunted Wood

An Adventure for The Black Hack, by Simon Forster

For 4-6 characters, Level 4

Across the border, along an old trail, nestled between two steep and rocky hills, lies the Haunted Wood. Blanketed in snow, gloomy and still, the wood does not like visitors. Of those few who enter, fewer still come back out, and those that do are always changed.

Why Go into the Woods?

Deep in the snowy woods is a tree unlike any other. It is said to be one of the roots of the First Tree, a link to Ancient Times and Places Beyond. The tree bears succulent fruit that is full of time; its juices flow with golden seconds and silver minutes, and eating the fruit reverses time, restoring youth, bringing the dead back to life, and even showing visions of the future. So it is said. This is reason enough for people to go into the woods, to search for the Root, to pick its fruit and taste the juices of time on their tongues. Aging kings and queens of fading beauty would sell their kingdoms for such a prize.

This adventure was written for the second edition of The Black Hack rpg, but is compatible with most other RPGs of a smiliar ilk. It comprises a lengthy random table of encounters and events in the haunted woods, as well as several key locations with their own maps and details. Plenty of new monsters, a few new magic items, and a mystery to be uncovered.

Should keep your players occupied for a few sessions, more if they get lost in the woods!

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.
