Were Crabs is a Fifth Edition adventure designed for three to five characters of 6th level.

When the bonds break, will you manage to hold back the tide?

Crosshead Studios presents Were Crabs!
In this nautical themed adventure, a group of adventurers embarks on a treasure hunt across the ocean. But not all is as it seems, as other ships are in hot pursuit and strange creatures from beneath the waves are preparing a trap which might change the lives of the adventurers forever... In more ways than one!
Prepare to be boarded! Dive down to sunken ships! Stop an ancient evil from being unleashed! All in a days work.

  • Multiple Maps Variations This adventure provides both gridded and non gridded maps (including a 50x76 Underwater Temple) and map variations featuring ships and underwater settings.
  • Easy Customization This adventure can be used as a stand alone one or two shot adventure or can be easily adapted into an existing campaign.

It seems to be an issue generated by DriveThru... I've checked the preview files and corrected them all, but nothing seems to change. I have added a custom preview that links to full-page previews I have located on my website! Hope that helps

*EDIT: Never mind it seems I fixed it after all. Full Preview is now available

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.
