The Story

Even a decade after the big battle against the necromancer Hermad, the lake region of Janoko has never been the same as before. Most of its towns have been ransacked and their inhabitants were turned into abominations in service of Hermad’s unholy army. The remnants of which still roam the countryside and attack the occasional traveller. Thus, even nowadays, new settlements don’t survive for long. The only exception is the small principality of Samin. While not a key player in the battle against Hermad, it managed to repel his forces for the past 100 years with the help of its sizeable militia. To this day, every citizen serves their time in either the Duke’s Rangers or the Temple Militia. The former are responsible for scouting out potential threats, the latter are in charge of defending Samin itself. This system has served the Saminians well: as the number of deaths by monster attacks have been decreasing each year. Yet, for a while now, more and more people have vanished from the town and even the watchful eyes of the Rangers haven’t been able to turn up their bodies. Could it be that a previously unheard-of monster has managed to infiltrate the resilient little town?

In this 3 – 6-hour adventure, a party of 3rd to 4th level characters rescue the life of one of the Duke’s Rangers and quickly find themselves involved in a dangerous investigation. Is someone in the town aiding a monster? Why does the Temple Militia hesitate to investigate the matter? To find out, the players must leave no stone unturned and keep an ear to the ground, listening to the “Murmur through the Cracks”.

An intriguing mystery with tons of interesting encounters, grizzly monsters and opportunities for role playing. I especially appreciate the consistent old school horror vibe in this story. Although I'd caution using this as the set-up for a one sh [...]

This is about the 8th or 9th pre-made adventure that I have slotted into my larger, ongoing, campaign now. And, I must say, that of all of them this was by far the best to implement. The document itself is well organised. The background informat [...]

Just played this one shot last night with my group, we started at 12:45 PM and finished up at 11 PM. We usually run longer than what we think but no one had any idea that we were going to get that much content out of this one shot. The party had a real [...]

This is a very nicely crafted one-shot: It’s well-structured, has great maps and is full of horrifying monsters and interesting lore. My players enjoyed very much investigating the dark mystery in this unbending city of rough rangers and temple milit [...]

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.
