A Stop on the Road

Suggested Price $0.00

A short adventure for 3-5 players of level 1-3


The hamlet of Cartrest has grown up around the Wearied Wagon Inn beside a main road. Recently locals have seen strange lights around a set of ancient ruins nearby. Driven by a mix of fearful superstition and curiosity the locals have scraped together a small reward to encourage someone to investigate.

Good stuff! Got it done in 4 hours with a mix of new and "seasoned" younger players. Getting lost in the woods added some time (Kenku, and Goblins, and Bears...Oh My!) :-) Thanks for the fun time!

A nice, short adventure. Good as a one shot to break up a longer campaign or as a starter for new players. Personally I would add a little more to flesh it out, but it is a nice little quest.

Great for first timers who need to learn the basics in an easy straight-to-the-point adventure. Be careful though, I felt like maybe the adventure would be too short, so I added a few triggers and side quests myself, ended up finishing it in 7 hours (which is too much for this plot). Do not make the same mistake I did if you want to wrap it up in 3-4 hours. Regards

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.
