Emerson Frostfield has been Kidnapped!

The young, wealthy, and extremely obnoxious noble has been talking very loudly about the money his family has. The party will have to head to the Cross Keys Inn on the High Road south of Neverwinter and bring him back unharmed.

However, The Cross Keys attracts many folks all with their own agendas… Crazed drunken goliaths, street gangs, thugs, and adventurers from all over Faerun are all thrown in to make for one wild night at the Inn!

This adventure gives players the option to be the heroes and save the day or play another group of bandits looking to capitalise on the work of others!

This adventure is a lot of fun. The antagonist is a total bad ass. The NPCs in the tavern are full of personality and immediately spark ideas for how they can interact with the PCs. The events that unfold keep the pace up. Solid one-shot adventure! [...]

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.
