Liars Abound

Suggested Price $1.00

Liars' night approaches! The holiday of Mask and Leira, of liars and tricksters, beloved throughout the realms! The city of Waterdeep prepares a vast celebration, with feasts, jack-o-lanterns, tricks and pranks, and illusionists and stage magicians putting on performances. Adults replace the money in their pockets with candy and other treats for a tenday beforehand, and children, both skilled and unskilled, attempt to pickpocket the candy and replace them with trinkets and scraps of paper. If they are caught, the adults can demand a silly dance, a scary face, or other such playful tricks in exchange for the treats. On Liars' Night itself, Marpenoth 30, adults in costumes emulating the gods Mask and Leira roam the streets, feasts are held in town squares, and illusionists perform elaborate shows. This night is the one night where any lies told or embarrassing acts performed would not harm a person's reputation, and kings mingled with commoners in the streets.

However, this year's celebration has taken a sour turn. Two days into the holiday, children began turning up sick with a mysterious illness, and the healers of Waterdeep are baffled. The sickness doesn't seem to be contagious, but is instead spread by consuming the candies pickpocketed from certain people. The Lady Mage of Waterdeep, Laeral Silverhand is attempting to keep this under wraps so as to avoid ruining her favourite holiday, and so has gathered a team of adventurers to investigate the illnesses. She is giving them four days, until Marpenoth 29, to find the source of the tainted candy, and put a permanent stop to it.

Liars Abound is an exciting, two or three session adventure that inspires and rewards creativity in both players and DMs. Built for four to six players, this urban mystery adventure will fill your players with so much excitement they'll be sad when it's over!

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.
