Children of the Hills


A small, isolated town in the midst of turmoil...rumors of strange children in the night...raided farms and homes...and something else, biding its time, lurking beneath it all.

"Children of the Hills" is a short investigative adventure for 4-6 characters of levels 3rd to 4th level. It can be placed into any setting as an excellent launching point for an extended campaign.

In this adventure you will find:

  • 6-12 hours of game play
  • 2 full stats for NPCs
  • The populated fiefdom of Cloaton, along with its locations
  • Rumors about the residents of Cloaton, providing seeds for future adventures
  • 2 full color maps, also in B&W

"HOLY CRAP it's so thorough. I can't wait to start it." - Baby DM

"...has a lot of potential to link up with The Out of the Abyss..." - Anthony M.

"Children of the Hills" is the first release from Cauldron & Tower

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.
