Adventurers Going Into the Well

Harper’s Tale is the final result of a successful fundraiser for Friends of Kids with Cancer. We raised over $10k for the organization and printed 165 books for them to distribute to kids and families fighting cancer. The DriveThruRPG product is owned by my daughter, Harper, whose vision helped bring this book to life. She’s planning to use the royalties for an international trip after we ring the bell in 2021 to celebrate her beating leukemia!

Young Girl With a Glowing Circlet on her forehead                     A Dirty But Loved Doll

Harper’s Tale is a forest-based adventure path of 10 connected adventures culminating in the party, now 10th level, confronting the source of the plague within their home land. The adventure is intended for players as young as 10, but I promise players of all ages will find plenty to keep them engaged with the story.

The adventure path starts in the Village of Grove as the heroes come to a seemingly deserted village. Through exploration and investigation, they learn that a mysterious illness has taken over the town, leaving only two young women, Rose and Grace, to care for the populace.

Their investigations take them under the town, and, in learning the source of the illness, they find themselves drawn into a much bigger plot by a mysterious force they know little about. What is clear is that the forest they call home is in danger, and the entity behind the illness of Grove has only just begun its foul machinations as evidenced by a sudden outbreak of madness in a neighboring town.

A second outbreak is staved off by the heroes—surely they are best described as such after saving not one but two villages—and they find themselves traveling to see the arch-druid of the forest, Deng. The journey is arduous, but the clever adventurers comport themselves well, and learn much in their audience with the ancient druid, including the ingredients for fashioning a cure for the otherworldly contagion and, more importantly, the appropriate rites for harvesting the key components.

Prof Piewright's Wonderful Wagon

Harvesting the cure is a greater challenge than the adventurers anticipated as they must deal with a cold war between the hidden powers of the forest in addition to gathering the ingredients in the dark recesses of the primordial wood.

Standing Stones Shocking a Hero

The adventure culminates in a confrontation with the creature whose machinations have been behind the debilitating disease wracking the forest. The heroes have learned much of their enemy, but have they learned all there is to know? How will they react when confronted with the source of so much pain and sorrow? Can it be defeated? Redeemed? Or will it win the day? There’s only one way to find out.

I am so excited for this!!! It goes straight to my heart. Saw the post from Matt (I follow you on Twitter) and immediately came here to get it since it's sold out (happy) from their inventory!
We lost my mom to leukimia last year after a year of fighting, so anything I can do to help and promote and elevate for this cause is very much welcomed!!!

Absolutely love it! We have just finished part three of the story, running with my three sons who are 20, 20 and 17, we love it. The NPC's are a treat and the storyline can be a little on the railroad side for an experienced group but my guys really do like it.

Came here to purchase this after seeing it retweeted by the cast of Critical Role. Only had a chance to skim the PDF so far but very impressed. Can't wait for the hardback to arrive!

If I could go back in time and tell myself anything, it would be to keep going, because there's a little girl like me doing big, beautiful, and amazing things.

I am delighted by this volume, and if I can financially manage it in the future, will be purchasing the physical copy. We're going to run this as a family, and I couldn't be more excited.

I wrote this for my blog at http://worlds-in-conflict.blogspot.com/2019/09/first-thoughts-harpers-tale.html during the run up to release. As it sits right now I've only really had a chance to absorb the first chapter but I look forward to going through the entire book this weekend!

Harper's Tale is a 10 chapter D&D adventure co-created by Matt Corley and his daughter Harper with the goal of benefiting Friends Of Kids With Cancer. Please check out their crowdfunding page at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/harper-s-tale-an-adventure-path-for-dnd-5e#/ for full details and the story behind the adventure's creation. After reading Harper's story I was ready to back the project regardless but after looking at the art, and since then getting a backer's copy of the first chapter of the adventure I'm blown away by how great this project looks and I can't wait to start running it.

The first chapter 'Welcome To Grove' starts with the PCs investigating an abandoned town and mixing a combination...See more

Format
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.
