Plague, Famine & War II - Adventure for Zweihander RPG


If this adventure follows on from Plague, Famine & War I then you will be familiar with the Hivers and how their plan for invasion from last time.

If you have not played Plague, Famine & War I, here is a synopsis.

What the average person understands is this:

The country where the adventure is set is in the grip of a second year of famine. To alleviate the famine a convoy of merchant ships was chartered and as they approached the port they were attacked. Every ship was sunk bar one. This last merchant vessel, the “Die Magd der Königinnen” was locked together with the ship that had rammed it. The characters were employed by a town guard captain Mara Lindwurm plus a tug captain to go out to the stricken merchant and tow it back to port. Their investigation revealed a race of giant insects intent on feeding off the human crew.

As a GM what you need to know is that the convoy was attacked by an intelligent race. Having got to land they have secreted themselves to multiple and spread their kind in all directions.

These events happened eight days ago.

Guard Captain Lindwurm will be the key NPC contact for the characters again.

If this is a new group of characters then anything that brings the characters in contact with the authorities, anything from a fights and barroom brawls to arguments with locals will put the characters on the authorities’ radar and bring a visit from Mara Lindwurm.

Mara Lindwurm is your plot hook, mentor and enabler for these adventures. She is a competent naval officer and former Naval Officer.

The PF&W series of adventures can be played out in any setting and country that you don’t mind inflicting a famine and invasion upon. In that sense it is setting neutral.

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.
