This adventure is based on actual cryptid encounters in Elkhorn, WI.

In 1936, a large, bipedal creature was sighted along Bray Road in Elkhorn, WI. The report stated that it stood 6-7 feet tall and had distinctive canine features much like a wolf walking on its hind legs. Since that initial encounter, numerous other sightings have occured in the surrounding area.

Investigations to date have turned up little evidence supporting the existence of this cryptid, but has uncovered a longer history of sightings in local folk lore and Native American tales. It seems "dogmen" have prowled the woods of Wisconsin for centuries. Reports of the creature cluster together both geographically and chronologically.

Three days ago, Dr. Aveline Schneider was involved in an accident near her home on Bray Rd. The report states that she collided with a large animal. The creature was not found but blood an hair samples were taken from her vehicle. Lab reports indicate that the samples appear canine but of no known species.

Your team is being sent to investigate this case. Your orders are to gather all available evidence, track and capture the beast if possible, and kill it if necessary.

This adventure features:

  • Background information for establishing an immersive adventure
  • System agnostic encounters that can easily be adapted to your favorite RPG
  • A flexible story arc providing the players multiple options and ways to resolve the case.
  • A map of Elkhorn, WI and the surrounding area

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.
