Rescue A Familiar Tale -- Now for Fantasy Grounds Unity!

Conversion based on original product containing:

The Heartland Scouts – brave defenders of the Coast Way – have been captured! What their captors haven’t counted on is the adventurers’ feisty animal companions. Left behind, they are nevertheless bound to spell trouble!

In this entirely unique adventure, players take on the roles of trusty animal companions and familiars on a quest to rescue their adventurer masters.

Surely leaving behind a druid’s harmless badger friend is no threat to one of the great evil powers of the world – or is it?

Rescue: A Familiar Tale features a story and challenges designed especially for the animal companions. Players choose and customize their animal companion from over 20 options, with illustrated character sheets included for each one.

This adventure does not require existing player characters and can be enjoyed by players of any experience level with the game. While it makes for a perfect “something different” one shot, Rescue can also serve as a session zero for any new campaign and includes guidelines for a fun and surprising way to create inspired new characters at the adventure’s end!

To aid in your animal shenanigans, the following are included in the adventure:

  • Preface on safety tools and guidelines to ensure a safe play experience
  • A professionally laid out, edited, and beautifully illustrated adventure for 4-6 players, designed for 2-3 hours of play
  • Detailed location map, available with and without gridlines for ease of VTT integration
  • Tokens for all the playable animals
  • All required stat blocks
  • Colourfully illustrated character sheets for more than 20 different animal options
  • Guidelines on using this adventure as a session zero for either a campaign featuring regular characters and for a campaign that continues the adventures of the animal companions in a fun way!
  • Line of Sight added for FGU

Note: This product is for use in the Fantasy Grounds Unity virtual tabletop. If you would like to purchase the PDF version, click here.

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.
