The Story

Hidden by the wayside’s thicket, not appearing on any map, lies the improvised hiding place of a lonely weaver. He claims to have been expelled from his hometown of Shalba because his services as a municipal weaver were no longer wanted. A nomadic group consisting of women and children from the Saruu tribe had settled on the seashore near the town. He knew that they far surpassed his weaving skills - only because they had stolen his enchanted loom shortly after their arrival. A fate that the little weaver lamented to anyone who would listen. Even in the city, the Saruu were not welcome; the Shalbanians had been sceptical since their sudden arrival and had instructed their children to keep as much distance as possible from the nomad camp. Rumour has it, that the Saruu women were witches who enchanted their cloth and cast wicked spells on everyone around them. The story goes, that the feudal lord was amongst their first victims. He, who rules Shalba and its lush surrounding countryside, had suspiciously and immediately placed the Saruu in his service. Since then, he has protected them from his own subjects as well as the harsh laws of the highwaymen. The weaver had tried many times to get his loom back, but never succeeded. Most of his attempts ended with him waking up a whole day later a few metres outside the Saruu camp. No memory of what happened and nothing to show for his efforts. He had tried to rally the citizens of Shalba, but they were too afraid of the violence their lord could inflict on them as punishment. So, they all wait, for someone to arrive and drive the Saruu out from Shalba for good.

In this 2 - 4-hour adventure, a party of 2nd to 3rd level characters are hired by the exiled weaver to retrieve his loom. Will the players succeed in helping the weaver without incurring the wrath of the feudal lord? Who are the Saruu and what have they done to the feudal lord? It seems that they won’t be able to live peacefully together in Shalba - or as the Saruu song laments: "If only we could weave the bands connecting us".

Fun little adventure with an interesting central conflict. It still requires a bit of preparation time from the GM's side and it is a bit RP-heavy, but overall we had a good time. Would recommend. [...]

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.
