Scarecrow's Lament - Pathfinder Second Edition Compatible

Suggested Price $1.99

This adventure anchors on a small rural farming village, the Village of Colebrook, a close-knit community bonded by a fundamentalist religion called the Way of the Oak and Field. The players arrive on the afternoon before a midnight celebration and sermon by the village elder recognizing fifty years of harvests and prosperity. During the midnight sermon a Cursed Scarecrow rises from the fields and attacks, seeking revenge for its murder. Can your players save the village? Will they connect the dots between the scarecrow and the murder of famed warrior, Michael McMasters fifty years ago? Well, that depends on the players now, doesn’t it.

A distant relative of one of the players (Mrs. McGirr) recently passed away and left a house and belongings to one of the player characters in her will. The house is in the Village of Colebrook, a small family-centric community with a stout following of an agricultural religion based on fundamentalist ideas – the Way of the Oak and Field. Unknown to the players and part of the mystery lies in the murder of Michael McMasters by the village elders, led by Richard and John Starling to ensure social control and the power of their religious sect.

The players arrive at the town in the afternoon before the midnight celebration of the defeat of the Dark Rider and a sermon about how the faith of the Way of the Oak and Field triumphs all. All this culminates with the rising of a Cursed Scarecrow (McMasters) intent on revenge against his killers and anyone else in the way.

The adventure has a slow burn feel to it but an impending climax, the celebration at midnight at the Mill Crossroads. If the players enjoy the mystery, allow them to talk to everyone and build suspicion that this village has some dark secret behind it.

Product Information
File Size:
2.41 MB
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.
