The Story

Of all the delicacies in the world, the Darlier Brandy must be one of the most exquisite there are. People call it the “Liquid Crown” – because even a small cask of a good vintage year can be worth more than double its weight in gold. The secret of its unmatched taste lies in the soil, the seeds and the technique used by the Hoyt family. For generations, they’ve studied and enriched the soil of their large estate with alchemical infusions. If the rumours of other winemakers can be trusted, the Hoyt family also uses very unorthodox fermentation, distillation, and maturation processes. Apparently, this is the reason why no bottle younger than fifteen years ever shows up on the market: the process to create a Darlier Brandy just takes this long. Currently, the growing enterprise is owned by the family’s seventeenth head, Camar Hoyt. He was able to increase the family’s political standing as well as its business, despite being a man of small stature and a gentle demeanour. He did this by sponsoring various local campaigns to build up the Darlier countryside and by hosting elaborate feasts, where the elite of the country would gather to mingle. Most famous of all: Camar Hoyt’s autumn equinox celebration in the park. An event drawing in the rich and powerful alike - along with the close attention of every criminal and spy in the country.

In this 5- to 7-hour campaign, a party of 8th to 9th level characters get invited to Camar Hoyt’s dangerous feast. Through magical means, they’ll learn of a plot to kill an important guest during Camar Hoyt’s final speech. Are they able to foil the plan or will Darlier be plunged into a civil war? The answer – surprisingly – can be found within the Darlier Brandy itself, or how Camar would put it: “In Vino Augurium”

Well written but DM's will need to do a lot of prep work. This adventure can be fun but the nature of many things happening at once requires a lot of attention to detail to ensure players are given a fair shot at acting in the story. [...]

Intriguing premise, good mystery. Having the adventure rely on a preventable future vision is a nice fantasy twist on a standard murder mystery. There are a few typos, but where it could use the most improvement is in the structure. Given the un [...]

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.
