Sinister Suspects (Van Richten's Case Files, Vol.1)


Dr. Rudolph Van Richten and his network of investigators have hunted and put an end to numerous creatures of the night across the Domains of Dread. But some foes are more elusive than others, and will require the aid of heroes to put an end their reign of terror and close out these open cases.


 2 unique villains to serve as recurring foes, as well as a campaign outline for each villain with detailed adventure hooks to continue the hunt across multiple Domains of Dread:

  • The Wereraven: A dastardly scholar seeking the way to a lost domain who uses birds and the environment to terrorize those who stand in his way.

  • The Night Terror: A spirit trapped by the Nightmare Court who haunts dreamers with visions of their own death.

2 complete short adventures (Tier 1) that can be used as one-shots or introductions to a longer campaign focused on hunting these foes across the Domains of Dread:

  • “An Unkind Nature”: A gathering of the Keepers of the Feather turns deadly when murderous birds overwhelm a seaside town.

  • “A Dream of Eternal Sleep”: A simple rest turns into a waking nightmare as visions of death haunt the heroes’ dreams.

New Items and Rules Options:

  • New Magic Item: Bluebeard’s Tear

  • Optional Rules: Running Dream Encounters

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.
