Adventure Location 001 - The Abandoned Tavern

Watermarked PDF

The forest holds many dark secrets, its bark, boughs and branches privy to the passage of time in a way people don't comprehend. It is an unavoidable space between the civilised pockets of the land. The local people make their way along the well-worn tracks and roads of the area. They know they should never stray from the path and they don't want to contemplate what foul creatures linger in the overgrown woods beyond their lantern light.

Frequently villages are ransacked by foul creatures and left empty and idle. Occasionally a village is so isolated and surrounded by the forest that people fear to live there. Rarely a plague or disease can destroy a village from within. For whatever reason, it is not unknown for villages to disappear, for paths to lead to nowhere and for travellers to never reach a destination.

The Abandoned Tavern sits at the heart of one of these forgotten villages.

This open source adventure location is a standalone scenario that is designed to fit into an existing campaign, or be the jumping off point for one.

Set in a dark fantasy world, the Abandoned Tavern is an ideal stop off for an adventure in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Zweihander RPG or any other dark and gritty fantasy rpg. It could even fit into a darker themed Dungeons & Dragons campaign.

This document will provide you with location descriptions, hooks to get in and out of the scenario and some potential hazards and enemies that would fit into the location well. As such this document will refer to elements that should be represented by finding the appropriate stats in which ever system you choose to play.

We hope you enjoy.

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.
