The Story

Perched on a cliff outside the fishing village of Dorma stands an old villa. It was once inhabited by Katja Arga, the widow of an infamous mercenary and pirate. The locals had always done their best to avoid the villa - even after Katja’s husband died. This wasn’t just out of fear of Katja’s alleged violent nature and short temper. During the day, otherworldly lights could be seen flickering through the dirty windows of the villa and at night, piercing sounds could be heard coming from below the house. Some nights, the shrieks would get so loud, the townsfolk were awoken from their slumber. When carefully asked about these strange phenomena, the unapproachable Katja just told the locals to mind their own business. Dorma did as it was told and started treating Katja as a cursed outsider. Still, their shock was great as one night, the sounds suddenly stopped. The villagers braced themselves for catastrophe – but nothing happened. No one saw Katja ever again. Yet, the lights could still be seen throughout the day – glinting invitingly at anyone walking past. The citizens of Dorma briefly debated, if they should burn down this clearly haunted house, but soon got used to seeing it on the horizon. Years passed like this and some started to forget what they were even afraid of. They were reminded three nights ago, as the sounds returned to the house and smoke could be seen rising from the long-cold chimney. Could it be, that Katja has returned?

In this 6 – 8-hour adventure, a party of 15th to 16th level characters are hired to investigate the old villa and to put an end to the hauntings. But what they find in the house isn’t what they expected. Katja clearly had been working on an important project all these years – a project just waiting for someone to “See it through”.

Create premise with detailed setting and fun core mechanic. However, I don't think this needs to be as high level an adventure as it currently is. The first fight almost seems unfair although it does do a great job at establishing the house as a credib [...]

I really loved playing this one-shot. The athmosphere of being outmatched by ones own mirrored gave me a really hopeless feeling. Therefore it was great fun but also quite a pressure to devise some traps as they are the only way to survive this encount [...]

This is a fun little one-shot with some clever action & puzzles and decent atmospherics. This can be run "as is" without much difficulty. The writing is clear and the ideas straightforward, even if potentially tricky in execution (mainly [...]

Format

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.
