A Letter Buried


In the far-flung islands of Hamato in the Forgotten Realms, a slain samurai warlord cannot rest until a letter thought lost is destroyed once and for all. In this adventure, the second in the Hamato Islands series, players will take part in a daring nighttime raid of a rival warlord's villa and attempt to destroy the letter before it is too late.  Only then can a ghost be laid to rest.

This module includes:

  • a 2-4-hour one-shot adventure, optimized for 3-7 party members at levels 5-10, with options to adjust difficulty based on APL and party size.
  • Monster stat blocks for each encounter, including samurai and samurai warlords.
  • Unique weapons and samurai armor options including the samurai battle armor.
  • Features unique magic items native to the Hamato Islands: the omamori talisman
  • Maps included in module, and as separate standlone scans for easier uploads to Roll20.

Only the bold will prevail, and only then can a buried letter see the light of day.

What Are The Hamato Islands?

The Hamato Islands are a reimagining of the old Forgotten Realms kingdoms of "Wa" and "Kozakura", which resided on the fringes of the contient of Kara-Tur.  United under one Imperial banner now, peace and stability reign on the Islands, and travelers from the Sword Coast are just beginning to  trickle in.  This is a land not well understood by Faerunians, and provides many opportunities for adventure, but players can also play characters native to the Hamato Islands using the Traveler's Guide for tips on character conversion and cultural tips to help flesh out character concepts.

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.
