The Story

Near the old dwarven road lies a tiny hamlet called Frohenfeld. Its not quite 40 inhabitants mostly make their living growing fruit. They are particularly proud of their cider, which has secured the village a decent income. Their business has been flourishing in recent years, thanks to exceptionally good harvests and steady demand. In good times like these the Frohenfeldians are regarded as friendly and open-hearted. However, there have been times, where the entire village was known for its fickle and calculating inhabitants. Usually, a place like this would never arouse the suspicion of the authorities. However, a few days ago one of the Archmage’s couriers vanished near the town on his way to the capital. Since he was carrying a priceless amulet, the Archmage’s agents immediately offered a bounty to anybody able to recover the lost artefact. Solving the case will therefore not only yield a princely reward, it will also grant some amount of political capital.

In this 1 – 3-hour adventure, a group of first to second level characters are sent to investigate the quiet Frohenfeld. Yet, what starts as an easy stroll through the countryside soon turns into a farce. A multi-layered intrigue which is bound to leave a sour aftertaste – or how the Frohenfeldians would put it: a truly “Accursed Apple Twist”!

Love the story! What's a good emount of players to play this with? Would it be possible to play it unmodified with two level 2 characters, or would I have to lower some stats for that?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Dave

Thank you for the compliment! Yes, I think unmodified with two level 2 characters should work - especially if they are already experienced players. The adventure should be playable with 2-4 players. If they are new players you can just have the Sirnach ramble a bit longer, giving your players the chance for a surprise attack or something similar.

Kind regards and good luck to your players

Would this be ok for young kids (4 years old)?

Hi Mr. E

Thank you for your question!

I think both the story and the encounters can be adjusted to be age-appropriate (e.g. by allowing any solution to opening the door to the boss' chamber, having henchmen "give up" instead of having to kill them, etc.)

The story and its length should be appropriate for kids. In my limited experience DMing for very young kids I'd recommend focusing on storytelling and funny interactions of combat and puzzle solving.

Hope that helps!

Kind regards and have fun playing

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.
