A Mischievous Mess

A 2-4 hour roleplay-centric mystery adventure! Perfect for levels 1-3 and fun for the whole family!

The party arrives at Thimblepin Manor, where one of the homeowners, Bartholomew Thimblepin has a huge problem: he’s being haunted by a poltergeist! Furniture has been moving slightly when no one was in the room. Keys have gone missing. The blackberries spoil as soon as they’re picked. To top it all off, the beloved dog, Georgie, has developed an unexplainable limp. The only explanation is that there must be a malevolent spirit haunting the halls.

Bartholomew needs your help to sort this mess out before his husband returns from his business trip in a couple of days. He can’t have his beloved returning to a cursed home!

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.
