Hardy and Beholder Investigations: The Reckoning (SJ-DC-HBI-003)


In the final installment of the horrifying SJ-DC-HBI Hardy & Beholder Investigations arc- the Reckoning- players will take a shady delivery from BRAL to REFUGE in MERCANE SPACE. 

A strange gambling den built into a Flying Pyramid has been orbiting Refuge and attracting visitors from across the Verse. Its proprietor, le gentilhomme LOUIE P GARVAL is looking to add a long coveted crown jewel to his collection of oddities inside. The player's crew is offered a disgusting amount of coin to move a heavy, chained crate to PHAROAH'S FORTUNE CASINO, no questions asked... but is working for this shady character a gamble worth taking?

This module includes:

- Adrenaline pumping pulp horror action in an intergalactic den of sin full of shady NPCs and spine-tingling cosmic terrors
- Flying Pyramid Casino Map

Written for the SPELLJAMMER seasonal campaign of ADVENTURERS LEAGUE, optimized for APL 4. This title is a prerelease sale being fine tuned in the lab, and will be released in time to bring Halloween horror to your players (slated 10/14). Grab the Hardy & Beholder Investigations Inc Case Files Triology to get all three 4-hour adventures for $6.66 and dig into the Stowaway and the Hitchhiker while we put the final playtest touches on the finale!

It might just be my version, but is the pdf layout a bit off? Because the background image on page 21 is placed right behind the text, what makes it really hard to read the page's text furthermore the stat blocks on the last three pages are going off page to the right and I'm not sure if page 5's content are just two boxed texts, because there is so much space left on that page that make me think that its missing something.
Am I the only one with that problem? :/

Apologies, we'll figure that out when we get home tonight! Probably something the programming/markdown on those pages needs tweaked, we'll clean it up for you!

What seed will be used for this one? I picked up that the last two used the seeds, is this a created wild space system or did you manage to use the final seed? :)

The Hardy & Beholder Investigations series covers the three seeds given by WoTC in the SJ Dungeoncraft document- this title in particular using the "Headed My Way?" hook, though we have expanded it to include a trip to Refuge/the Mercanespace system.

Publisher Stock #
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.
