Story Hoard


The Story

The Crystal Dragon scours the coastlines, attacking ships and stealing the memories of sailors. Compelling mysteries await in seaside cities, in drowned shipwrecks, and below the decks of sailing vessels. This adventure module begins with a spooky tale told over beers in a dark shore-side tavern, and introduces action, adventure, and intrigue to the coastlines of your world. 

Story Hoard provides adventuring opportunities both at sea and inland, exploring a region affected by the dragon. If they be powerful enough - or brave enough - perhaps they will even confront the Crystal Dragon in her lair and learn her secrets!

The Structure

Written by Hugo Nominee Mur Lafferty, author of the Solo novelization, this adventure module is system-agnostic. You can use it with your game system of choice. You will need to create stats for the characters and monsters at an appropriate level for your players. 

Each of these adventures and locations are presented sandbox-style, for you to pick and choose from as you wish. While each of these adventures and locations depict a region influenced and affected by the Dragon, none point your players directly towards her. Also included is a short story to set the tone.

The 62 page PDF contains 10 high quality adventure maps (both with and without grids), and includes portraits of 29 important NPCs. 

All maps, portraits, and major images are also available as separate files for use in a Virtual Tabletop (VTT), or to otherwise share with your players.

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.
