Each solo adventure is unique; in Sword for Hire you become a mercenary, exploring the dark recesses of a wizard's tower. Fabulous treasures, diabolical monsters, pitfalls at every corner and danger at every turning - will you be able to survive, complete your assignment, and earn the title of "Hired Sword"? Otr will  it end badly? This book is a prequel to Blue Frog Tavern.

This version updated in 2020 has new covers, cleaned up scans, additional art and other minor enhancements.

Perhaps THE BEST introductory solo of all the classics. It is engaging, has a delightful NPC character who follows along with you helping (or occasionally hindering), and is geared towards very low level characters. Plus you might walk out with a nice magic weapon for use in the next module you tackle. This is one module that accommodates characters with lower strength by giving you a chance at a superior weapon.

It was written for 5th edition, and Deluxe T&T characters now often have improved combat adds compared to prior versions, so if you want a fairer challenge under new rules, you could give every opponent an extra die to their attack.

Perhaps nowadays one of the modules with mini-rules included might be a better intro module, but in terms of a fun story, this one is top notch. And despite being for low level characters, it’s not a cakewalk.

Plus it has a sequel in Blue Frog Tavern, equally well-written!

A true classic, and the new scans of the...See more

Thanks Jeffrey! We are working hard to get all the Flying Buffalo solos available on Drive-thru and some of them (like Sewers of Oblivion) will also be reprinted. Keep checking - we try to get at least one of our books up on Drive-thru every month! (This is Steve logged in on Rick's account as he is the only one with access)

Scanned image
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.
