I am enjoying this adventure to. Some issues I ran into was timing, how long it takes adventures to realistically get from murder scene A to murder scene B and how long would it take the murderers to do the same? Had to sort of hand wave it a little. Also stat blocks for ravers were way out of control, 52 HP and 3 attacks each!!!

Interesting adventure. But I'd love some tips for dealing with spells and features that could solve the mistery from the beginning. For example, I know the first thing my players would think of when finding the half elf corpse is casting Speak with Dead, which if successful would spoil the entire plot.

Any chance of getting an image for the map of the Shrine of Onatar that can be used in Roll20?

I noticed a typo in Steel-Eye Dixon's statblock, it says his fists deal "type" damage, which is presumably supposed to be bludgeoning.

Good, flavorful scenario. It's very noir.

Nitpick/typo: on pg 8, it says "Middle Menthis" in the first paragraph, presumably referring to the location of Ivy Towers, which is correctly said to be in "Upper Menthis" on the lower right portion of pg 9.

Similarly, pg 15 says that Graywall is in Upper Tavick's Landing. It's actually in Middle Tavick's Landing. And "is comprised of" could be better as "comprises".

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.
