The Hunted


The Hunted is a one-shot horror adventure designed for characters levels 1-4 and is expected to take 3-5 hours to complete. This time could be accelerated or lengthened depending on some of the decisions your party makes while running from the Entity that hunts them and their combat pace. Unlike most other creatures your players will face in a campaign world, The Entity cannot be killed with blades or with spells. They will need to be creative and make decisions that could conflict their morals as they try to gain enough distance from The Entity to be able to sleep without being torn to pieces. Do they have what it takes to stay alive?

Adventure Description

Inspired by the movie It Follows, this adventure pits the party against an ancient evil entity that follows its mark no matter where it goes. The Entity does not sleep, does not eat, and is unstoppable by all traditional means. It can change forms and has the strength to rip the limbs from any who would interfere with its hunt. The adventure begins with one of the party members becoming the newest mark of The Entity, interrupting a quiet evening at the tavern. The remainder of the adventure is the party’s struggle to reach a town a few days over where one of the formerly cursed individuals - a man by the name of Viorec - believes he has a plan to put an end to this monstrosity once and for all.

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.
