Guesting at Artifice Manor

"Welcome to the Karstark Manor! You are now Guests." (c) Clay-13

A genius inventor - Anthony Karstark, founder of the "Karstark Inventions", has recently reached a new level of reclusiveness, when he stopped showing up at his company events.  A concerned friend and employee, Holly Amberfell, hires an adventuring party, to figure out what happened to him. 

As adventurers enter and explore the quarantined manor of the great inventor, they have to deal with his mechanic inventions, figure out minor mysteries of past and present, and finally - face Anthony himself, changed by a strange disease into a Slaad-spawn.

Guesting at Artifice Manor is an 8-10 hours long mystery and exploration adventure, that should roughly take two playing sessions (or can be squished into one - suggestions on how to do it are inside the book!). It is optimized for 4 to 5 characters of 8-10 levels. This adventure can be used to kick-off a campaign, exploring the origins and history of Slaads.

Guesting at Artifice Manor features:

  • A manor of rich and enigmatic inventor to explore, full of unusual constructs and minor inventions.
  • A menagerie of new monsters-constructs and new versions of Slaads and Slaad disease to explore.
  • A host of unusual but likable NPC's, fate of which is completely in the hand of the players.
  • High-quality and high-detail battle maps!

Stretch goals:

  • if this adventure reaches Copper metal status, I will add an additional encounter map for the "Do not disturb the guest!" encounter 
  • If this adventure reaches Silver metal status, I will add high-quality printouts for notes and clues in the game.
  • If this adventure reaches Electrum metal status, I will write a follow-up adventure, for one of the possible outcomes.

Format
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.
