Summer in December



A Grey Man appears, children disappear and a young woman claims to be pregnant by her dead fiancé. This starter adventure is designed to be played at conventions in four hours or less, and can be used as a campaign starter, to introduce a group of new characters to one another.

December is a small hamlet to the west of Upsala, which has seen a good deal of change in recent years. Nestled in the lower slopes of a southern valley, the village had, for the last century, prospered farming a mix of sheep and grain.

But the arrival of the railway, further down the valley, has changed the nature of the village. There is more profit in producing milk, for quick transport by rail to the city. Profit enough, indeed, to have seen the flocks of sheep replaced by herds of cows, a new dairy built at the bottom the village, and feed-grain and flour brought in on the train. The old mill at the top of the village has fallen into disrepair.

Are these the changes that have angered the Vaesen in the valley? Or are there more sinister reasons for the strange goings on?

I was lucky enough to enjoy playtesting this adventure scenario as a patron of the 'Effekt' podcast (the author is a co-host of that podcast). Since then story has been honed and refined, even more. It was already great. I enjoyed the [...]

Rule System(s)
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.
