Hair of the Dog


The lady of House Zulpair has received a threat to steal a priceless artifact from under her nose. The threat comes in the form of a letter signed by “Hair of the Dog,” a notable phantom thief who made their mark on Waterdeep nearly 300 years ago. Lady Zulpair hires the party to keep her valuables safe without disrupting any activity in the manor— for Hair of the Dog has vowed to strike on the very same night as the lady’s birthday party!

This romp through the City of Splendors involves several familiar faces, including Vincent Trench and Savra Belabranta, and works perfectly as a companion to Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. The adventure is intended for a party of characters who are levels 4-5.

This adventure was published during the RPG Writer's Workshop Summer 2019 session and could not have been completed without the wonderful instructors and community surrounding it.

What a marvelous adventure! Dashing characters, love and intrigue, and a chase across the city at night -- this is an exceptional adventure and a lovely whodunnit. In Hair of the Dog, the party is charged with protecting the Zulpair locket from [...]

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.
