Step into the shoes of your investigator as you navigate the twisted streets, where shadows whisper and secrets lurk behind every door. Uncover a web of mysteries that stretches back generations, entangling the townsfolk in a sinister game of manipulation and sacrifice.

But beware, for something ancient and malevolent stirs beneath the surface. A spectral Scarecrow looms over the town, its presence evoking nightmares and driving the townsfolk to madness. Can you unravel the enigma of the Scarecrow and break the curse before it consumes you and all that you hold dear?

The timeline is a bit confusing.

Seven and a half Months ago (1st week of
September): He animates a but does not give it
any real direction other than to server the god in
the cave. The Scarecrow takes that to mean, it
should bring the god offerings of humans… The
god blesses a sickle for the taking of the offerings.
The first murder happens. Janice Tormach was
coming in from the barn when she was attacked
and killed with a sickle. The Scarecrow took her
after cutting off her right hand.

So the scarecrow was created in September and killed her.

December - 1st Murder - Janice Tormach; signs
of struggle and lots of blood, enough to indicate
death. Her right hand was found at the scene.
Killed by George Maxwell.

So George Maxwell killed her?

May - 6th Presumed Murder (Not found - yet;
Jason Daughtery - on the way home from his
girlfriend’s house). Wilma offered him...See more

Yes there are two scarecrows. If it does not explicitly say who killed them, assume George did it or took them to his god.

My purchase contains the files for the handouts and the pre-gen characters, but it doesn't seem to have the adventure itself. Am I supposed to download that part somewhere else?

My apologies. I had made a minor edit and re-uploaded and something went wrong. It should be there now.

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.
