Jack Straw (5e)


A New and Horrifying Creature for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons

The mastermind behind our Cities of Wonder line steps out of that arena for a 'just-in-time-for-Halloween" offering for anyone running 5e. Bill "teh ebil bunneh" Keyes (The Widening Gyre) loves him some horror, and Jack Straw is a highly recognizable concept in horror - the scarecrow come to life, representing something from the realms below returned to Earth to bring terror and death. Based on a Grateful Dead song - 

Jack Straw from Wichita
Cut his buddy down
Dug for him a shallow grave
And laid his body down

Jack Straw is a creature of vengeance. This makes it a fantastic choice for either a straight-up horrible monster encounter, or a deep and terrifying mystery whereby someone is due a vicious paypack for some truly evil deed, and the heroes have to figure out how to stop it... or even if they should.

Have a member of your party pulling some dark and twisted stuff in the background the rest of the party doesn't know about? Jack Straw is a beautiful way to bring those birds home to roost.

Writing, design, and graphic design by Bill Keyes. Edited by Jennifer Shinefeld. Special thanks to Gordon Feiner for design and story input.

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.
