The Hunter In The Tempest


Happy Halloween! From now through October 31st, this digital title has been marked down by up to 30%. Discover more scary savings by visiting our Halloween sale page.


A short adventure optimized for a party of 4 level 7 characters. As as standalone this adventure should last between 4-8 hours. Additionally, this would fit in well with any Icewind Dale adventures, or snow/tundra-based ones, as despite being in Icewind dale, the geography makes no mention of pre-established places. The adventure has a loose narrative, with key locations and encounters, but is aimed more at traversal and survival than it is combat. As such, each area will have descriptions of the environment, key locations, or markings to pick up on, and a key encounter that the chapter focuses on. The aim for this adventure is to be an open sandbox environment to allow the DM to gain some experience with weather effects and running a survival horror adventure. Opportunities for interaction with NPC’s is extremely limited once the party leaves Barrowhearth.

The Story:

The party is set to investigate the mountainside at the behest of the folks at Barrowheart. A  great wizard used to live at the top of the mountain in Aphelion peaks, and may just have some books on how to rid the town of the blight. Additionaly, an invisible and deadle creature has been stalking the mountainside for years and years, getting ever closer to the town - it must be stopped. To top it all off, when the wizard went missing over a century ago, an immense blizzard was formed, shrouding much of the mountain with an unrelenting storm. If the party can solve the blight problem and any other of these long-standing issues the poeple of Barrowhearth would be extremely grateful.

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.
