Within Brigands' Tollway, a Hither Adventure

Within Brigands' Tollway, a Hither Adventure

ZIP File


A bramble in the foot of those who cross the swampy bog of Hither, Agdon Longscarf and his notorious brigands have been living large beneath Bavlorna Blightstraw. Few outside of his harengon crew have seen the inside of Brigands' Tollway, where Agdon is the king of thieves, surrounded by the riches of those he's robbed. Fewer still are privy to his wild ambitions of moving up and out from under the thumb of his mistress. What threads might our heroes unwind on their journey to Brigands' Tollway?

A Wild Beyond the Witchlight Adventure - What's this all About?

Chapter 2: Hither is the first portion of Prismeer described in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight. Each of the locations presented in this chapter can be explored quickly, outside of the village of Downfall. This mini-adventure aims to add a new location, the interior of Brigands’ Tollway and integrate it seamlessly into the flow of the chapter. At this location, characters can engage in some tactical combat (or find clever ways to avoid it), get some loot to help them in Bavlorna’s Cottage, and potentially even rescue a guide to Thither. 

Brigands’ Tollway is described as an enormous tree stump, 30 feet tall and 80 feet in diameter with harengons camping atop it. This premise is interesting, but by making the stump a hollowed-out base we can add a lot more exploration, sneaking around, and potential tactical combat. As always, it is up to you how much of the content you want to use. It’s perfectly fine to use some parts of this supplement while discarding others, or simply let the ideas presented here inspire new ideas of your own. This supplement assumes a party of 4-6 characters of 3rd level with scaling options for 2nd and 4th.

This Adventure Includes:

  • Expanded Location in Hither. Explore the interior of Brigands' Tollway!  
  • Color VTT-Ready Maps. Fight or content with the forces of evil and good on a beautiful hand-drawn landscape.
  • Advice for the Harengon Brigands. Set up a worthy adversary for the party to contend with as they cross the landscape of Hither.

Adventure Summary

For one reason or another, the party must infiltrate Brigands’ Tollway. First, the party must fight/ sneak past/bribe both the guards on watch and the sentries at the front entrance. In a storage room, the party may find an ally in a petrified dryad, who can help them heal and sneak further into Brigands’ Tollway. The party must get past the harengons dozing in their bedrooms before reaching Agdon’s Chambers. The party can have a final showdown with Agdon in his chambers and reclaim any items stolen from them as well as a magical key (a chime of opening) that can help them with Bavlorna’s Cottage. After dealing with Agdon, the party may come face to face with his black dragon wyrmling, Ixjharatar, and her pile of treasure, potentially containing Clapperclaw’s head. Depending on their actions, the party may leave Tollway with new alliances, new treasure, or new bruises.

Hi, Daniel! It seems, I'm gonna run your adventure very soon! I was just wondering if it's possible to get those wonderfull top-view NPCs' images in png, without background? Those arts would make the perfect tokens! If not, then it's totally fine, I know how to photoshop ^_^.

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.
