Hardy and Beholder Investigations: The Hitchhiker (SJ-DC-HBI-002)


Hardy & Beholder Investigations: The Hitchiker is the second module of a three part series arc that can be played as stand alone titles. On a ship full of wounded survivors limping towards Bral, an uninvited guest stirs horror for the crew! This 2-4 hour adventure for Tier I characters (optimized for APL 3) will see players:

  • Learn about KARPRI, the beautiful yet hostile fourth planet from the sun in REALMSPACE, possibly avoiding an attack by a raiding party of Karpri Elves or a Gargantuan Praying Mantis!
  • Encounter prisoners chained to tiny asteroids- "traitors" of the Elvish Imperial Fleet's Unhuman Wars- one of which harbors the murderous Black Bart's Ghost
  • Survive 24 hours of ghostly assaults as Black Bart hops between crew members, spreading terror on their ship as it sails across the Sea of Night toward Bral
  • Participate in an Exorcism Ritual, helping a wounded Veronica Hardy banish the vile spirit- if the party can catch him!

Content Warnings: Crashes, Starvation, Torture, Madness, Ecto-Demonic Possession (Loss of Autonomy) and Murder-Suicide (via Possession).

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.
