Encounter in the Hills (The Bounty Pt. 1)


A 2 hour adventure for 1st level characters.

Sightings of Orcs in the hills surrounding a frontier town has prompted the town master to offer a large bounty for anyone willing to bring back proof of an orc kill. Several bounty hunters have made the journey in an effort to collect, yet so far none have returned from their hunts to claim their prize. Could it be the rumors of Orcs are false and these hunters have simply gone on to the next bounty? Or could the threat lurking in the hills be greater than even the town master suspects?

This is the first of a three part series. "The Bounty" is intended to serve as a side quest that scales with the party, offering an expansion to existing campaigns and conveying the impression of events passing in the world around them.

@Thor. T

Thank you for the purchase! In regards to your comment on the text, are you referring to the boxed text which the DM reads to players, or the informational highlight text that includes what NPC's know?

Rules Edition(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.
