Wilderlands: Imperial Town of Tell Qa

Watermarked PDF

The Wilderlands of High Adventure: Imperial Town of Tell Qa PDF is a ready-to-play town setting designed and approved for use with Castles & Crusades. Found on the northern border of the Falling Empire of Viridistan (Wilderlands Campaign Map 4), Tell Qa includes 83 town locations complete with NPCs, ranging from taverns and inns to courtesans and moneychangers; plus details on local races and cultures, military defenses, local Mycretian cells, adventure rumors, recent history, and streets and market places, and a gorgeous yet eminently useable Judges Map of the town and a blank Players Map that the judge can hand to players exploring this last bastion of civilization of the Falling Empire.

Looking for adventure? Don’t know where to start? Here’s an easy method. Flip through the booklet and pick a location at random. This is where the adventure begins, in the middle of the action. Look over the description of the location and its occupants, and consider the nature of the adventurers. Perhaps the NPCs seek to employ the adventurers — they need a treasure recovered, or an enemy silenced. Maybe the adventurers seek goods or information at the establishment. If you are still stumped, pick another establishment at random, and develop a connection between the two and the adventurers. Perhaps the Grocer (#48) has a cart of odd goods to deliver to the Bazaar (#20), and wants to hire guards… why? What is he really delivering that needs such protection? Or maybe the adventurers start out at the Town Jail (#55) — are they prisoners, visitors, guards, or perhaps they are bounty hunters? You decide. If the adventurers start in the Slave Market, they could be slaves being auctioned off, or passers–by who see a friend or ally being sold. The possibilities are endless; just pick a location and go!

This PDF also includes 20 highly detailed NPC encounters designed specifically for use with Tell Qa.

Imperial Town of Tell Qa is designed to be used with the upcoming Valley of the Dead Queens Sandbox Module Series, as well as the forthcoming Environs of Tell Qa Wilderness Series. The whole can be combined into a massive campaign that provides countless hours of adventure!

Note: The information presented in this PDF is available in print form in the 2007 Free RPG Day product Imperial Town of Tell Qa: Northern Bastion of the Falling Empire (out of print), and the 2007 Gen Con Special: XXXI (still available in limited quantities). If you have the FRPGD version, you are missing only the 20 Tell Qa Encounters. If you have XXXI, you already have all the material presented herein.

This is a good product. Since you have to print it yourself, I don't know that it's worth $9, but it's a good product. First, it's not a town. It's a city. Towns are a certain size, in general, we'll call them smaller than city. This is a city-s [...]

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.
