Adventure Seeds: The Wheelhouse Prison

Suggested Price $2.99

The Warden Is Waiting

For years the Wheelhouse was nothing more than a simple mill. The same family owned it for generations, passing it down father-to-son over and over again. 

Around sixty years ago the owners of the mill fell in to debt. Despite their best efforts, when the time came to pay up they could not. Their lands and property were seized, they were incarcerated, and the Wheelhouse was left to languish.

A few years later the local Lord expressed dismay at having to walk past the town jail so often. Hearing the cries of those inside, having to endure seeing such wretched people being transported through the town in chains, it was vulgar and not befitting of the nice, quiet town he held domain over. He spoke of a desire to build a new prison, somewhere outside of town where those who had broken the law could be sent and forgotten about. Eventually he was reminded that the old Wheelhouse building belonged to him, and he began to convert it to its current use.

The mill was gutted, replaced with machinery that harnesses the constant turning of the waterwheel to allow guards to control heavy iron portcullises that control access to the prison and the lightless cells beneath it. Nobody gets in without permission. Nobody gets out at all.

Adventure Seeds: The Wheelhouse Prison hands you the keys to the prison, giving you everything you need to build a memorable adventure for your gaming group – in whatever roleplaying system you prefer. This book contains:

  • 10 new NPCs
  • 4 magic items
  • 12 maps! (Poster-sized and printable, with and without grids)
  • 15+ adventure hooks
  • Ideas for further adventures

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.
