Watermarked PDF

An adventure for Levels 2–4

So you want to join the Minutemen? You think you have what it takes? We'll see tonight. Six crimes in 12 hours, that shouldn't be too difficult, right. It's not. Not until you see the "shopping" list.

Steal the journal from the Herbalist and Witch, Madame Byanca. Find a precious and rare Black Diamond, hidden somewhere in the city. Retreive the Lord Rhelgin's sword. Kidnap Father Milas Tomor, a Priest of Pelor. Leave a bloody dagger in the room of Regent Petralis. Last... we'll save that one for later. Worry about getting these five done first.

Impossible you say? Let's hope not. The penalty for failure is imprisonment. You see, the guild has a deal with the local constable. Anyone who fails to pass the guild's initiation is handed over to the constable and imprisoned for past crimes, real or otherwise. The guards enjoy a short period of glory for "solving the crimes" and the guild gets rid of a few worthless recruits.

Good luck!

This adventure may be played alone or in conjunction with Honor Among Thieves.

Released in conjunction with the Evil sourcebook, this adventure sets the party as candidates for membership in the Minutemen, the local thieves' guild. They are handed a list of items they are to 'acquire' over a single night... and if they fail, they [...]

The adventure is good and it would be worth a 4 Star rating. However, the presentation is IMPOSSIBLE. It is a staples removed scanned in product the size of a piece of paper folded in half from top to bottom. That would be fine except they did not arra [...]

My players enjoyed this module, which was played the session immediately following the Honor Among Thieves Module. The party was made up of four level 6 players and one level 5 player; a mercenary group with good & neutral tendencies. They were try [...]

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.
