WGA2 Falconmaster (2e)

Selected Option:

The discovery of an evil cult in the City of Greyhawk has caused city officials to seek assistance in wiping out this new menace. Their greatest worry? The cult's leader has disappeared, and officials fear that she is simply gathering strength for her ultimate assault on the city.

Can your adventuring party find the cult's leader and put a stop to her plans before she puts a stop to you?

Falconmaster is the second of a three-part series of adventures for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons2nd Edition role-playing game that began with Falcon's Revenge.

Falconmaster is designed for five to seven characters of levels 5 to 7.

Product History

WGA2: "Falconmaster" (1990), by Richard W. and Anne Brown, is the second adventure in the Greyhawk Falcon trilogy. It was published in June 1990.

Origins: Continuing the Trilogy. WGA2: "Falconamster" (1990) is the second adventure in the Falcon trilogy, after WGA1: "Falcon's Revenge" (1990). That places it in the strong final year of the second wave of Greyhawk production.

Adventure Tropes. This adventure continues to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, bringing encounter-based episodic play to Greyhwk. However, there's bit of variety: some of the encounters are laid into a wilderness framework. There's also bit of investigation, a manor crawl, and a temple defense — so consider it an encounter-based adventure with some agency along the way.

Accessories of Note. This adventure contains more fold-up cardstock buildings for use with FR8: Cities of Mystery and WGA1: "Falcon's Revenge" (1990). They represent the Temple of St. Cuthbert and its grounds.

Exploring Greyhawk. "Falconmaster" is set in and around the City of Greyhawk, with a journey north into the Cairn Hills to visit the Falcon's homebase.

NPCs of Note. The big NPC of this adventure is the Falcon, a spirit naga and leader of the Cult of Iuz. She of course must escape to ensure that the trilogy continues.

Also of note is Mizaab Zalen, one of the unique Greyhawk dragons. They were introduced in Greyhawk Adventures (1988), which said that there are "no fewer then five Greyhawk dragons in the city whose name they bear!" This is one; a second would be introduced in WGA3: "Flames of the Falcon" (1990).

Organizations of Note. This adventure continues to be about the conflict between the Cult of Iuz and the Church of St. Cuthbert.

About the Creators. Anne Brown began working at TSR as an editor in 1989, first on their magazines, then as part of their Game Division. She also authored a handful of books for TSR, of which the Falcon Trilogy was the first. Richard Brown, her husband, authored just these three books for TSR (though he's more recently written Living Greyhawk adventures for Wizards).

Missing the 3d Cutouts. Am requesting a refund for this file, or a scan of the buildings. This listing indicates that they are INCLUDED with the file, but this is clearly NOT the case.

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.
