Red Circle - T&T solo adventure


Red Circle - A Solitaire Adventure for Tunnels & Trolls
This solo by Best-Selling author Michael Stackpole has been scanned, enhanced, and is now available for the first time as a pdf. It also is illustrated by the award-winning Liz Danforth. 

The Red Circle... Just hearing the name sends a chill down your spine. No one is quite certain why these normally friendly, tribal nomads have become savage raiders, but the bloody evidence of their marauding can be seen throughout the region. This would not normally disturb you, but your wanderings have drawn you into the besieged holding of Baron Valdemar.

The Baron doesn’t seem to be that bad a sort, but the folks in his employ lack certain manners. The Baron makes you an offer: eliminate the raiders, and he’ll make you richer than you could possibly imagine.

Sounds too good to be true? It probably is. Though the Baron forgets to mention it, you’ll soon discover his offer has a number of “fine print” clauses that spell danger for for any adventurer foolish enough to accept it. The Baron doesn’t really worry about that, though, because your only alternative to accepting his offer is death.

But who wants to live forever anyway? If you do, you’d best keep away from the RED CIRCLE...

This solitaire adventure is suitable for individual humanoid adventurers of any level,
with no more than 60 personal adds. This is a solo adventure game for use with the T&T rpg.  you will need a Tunnels & Trolls Rulebook to play.

Hi David - thanks for the Errata list! I'll get those corrections in and upload an updated pdf file!
James - Here is what is enhanced from the previous printed version: The Front and Back cover art has been upgraded; Additional art and graphics have been added; Many of the illustrations have been enlarged, and now we will incorporate the errata corrections directly into the book text so that the solo can be more easily played.

Hello. I just purchased the Red Circle PDF today. Thank you for bringing these classics back and working on enhancing them.

Do you still plan on adding the corrections as outlined by David below? If yes, when could we expect that to be added to DriveThruRPG's library?

Each page was scanned as an image, not text. You will not be able to search for text in the pdf.

Furthermore, this means that none of the errata have been applied. You will need the following:

Paragraph 1: Go to 65 should be go to 211.
Paragraph 57: The constitution of the guards is 16 each.
Paragraph 123: Go to 5016 should be go to 84.
Paragraph 182: After you determine the "adds" of the Baron, (by rolling 6 dice) add 12 for his Constitution.
Paragraph 211: Camp is at 209 should be Camp is at 91.
Paragraph 213: Go to 4015 should be go to 89.

What is meant by "enhanced?" How is this different than the original printing?

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.
