Quirin Adventure #4: The Clownish Village


GMC - It's Game Master's Choice!

Come to the world, where mortals created and became gods, where the Long Night powers orcs and undead and where ruins of a glorious past let deities fear for their existence. A world of enigmatic NPCs: from the Ancients, over the mythical Sirison and the Guardian of Simit to a being of unknown age and power, the Quirin.

Let the characters become a part of your own Quirin Saga. Look out for the independent "Quirin Adventure" series. Every scenario can be placed in your campaign world. Feel free to adapt the material presented here as you see fit to make it work with your campaign.

The Clownish Village is an adventure site for four characters of about 10th level. The heroes arrive in Ridge Ville, a village located in a temperate mountainous area of an evil empire full of half-elf masters and nonhalf-elf slaves. They may discover a claustrophobic bounty hunter, an impotent noble, an imprisoned gladiator, an intriguing constable, and a scheming mercenary, among many other interesting NPCs. They could face charmed or hungry monsters, the Black Squadron, natural hazards of the Heaven's Band, the Flaming Circus, the powers of a desirable minor artifact, and the wrath of a demilich's vassal. Whether they decide to explore the area that is in need of good deeds or not, they will be accused of the abduction of the Count of Ridge Ville.

    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.
