The Nightmare

The Nightmare

Suggested Price $1.00

The Nightmare is the first chapter of a 3-adventure horror-themed miniseries designed for second tier characters that continues with The Monsters Within and finishes with The Star Pact.

In this adventure the characters wake up in a barren land, without any memories of how they got there. Without any clear escape route and left alone to fend for themselves in the ever-changing hostile world, they must prove able to survive the eldritch monsters that haunt them and finally escape from the dream-prison they are caged in.

This adventure includes optional custom rules to handle stress as well as a custom mechanic that allows your players to manipulate the nightmare they are trying to escape.

Although any of the three adventures above can be played as a one-shot, I wrote this trilogy as an interlude that can be fit into a campaign. I tried to include as many chances as possible to add your own plot hooks if you decide to include this trilogy in your own story.

I expect to be able to publish the second and third parts within a week, so stay tuned!

I would suggest using this adventure for tier 2 characters - level 5 at least but maybe you can get away with level 4s if your players know what they are doing.

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.
