Mike's Free Encounter #94: Gingerbads


This is the 94th in an ongoing series aimed to provide the overworked DM with ready-to run encounters.

The PCs encounter the Gingerbads, animated and angry gingerbread people. Will they triumph or will they be the cookies that crumble?

The base encounter is CR 2.

The village of Armonk’s celebration of the Winter Purchasing Season includes reviving the snow person Yool (which went horrible once) and cutting down trees of the Friendly Forest to decorate. The villagers also gather gingerbread.

While gingerbread is usually baked, a magical gingerbread village is located near Armonk. While the people of Armonk harvest it each year, it always reappears in time for the Winter Purchasing Season. This year, however, things are different.

When the official Gingerbread Inspector went to check on the village, they were surprised to find it inhabited and then shocked to learn the inhabitants are gingerbread people. Barely escaping with their life, the inspector reported back to the village: they now had competition for the gingerbread (but also potentially more gingerbread). The inspector called the gingerbread people “gingerbads” and the name stuck.

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.
