Adventure Location 002 - The Smuggler's Hideout

Watermarked PDF

The canal was created to increase the waterfront of the city and improve its trade prospects. In this way the guilds of the city paid respect to the gods of trade and rivers, but also allowed for many more traders to conduct swift and effective commerce. This led to a period of financial growth for the city and the canal is seen as a symbol of prosperity and one of the few times the guilds collaborated successfully for the benefit of all.

However, over the recent decades the city has been hit by harder times. Foreign lands have opened up competing trade routes and some of the lustre of the city has dulled. Unfortunately for the council, nefarious groups have decided to use the waterfront properties as a staging point for black market activities. It seems not everyone wants to pay the shipping taxes that the city officials wish to level and would prefer some goods arrived surreptitiously.

The Smuggler’s Hideout sits on the canal and is just such a black market supply point.

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.

As an open source fantasy location, the Smuggler's Hideout is a useful site for many roleplaying games, including: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Zweihander RPG and of course, Dungeons & Dragons!

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.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
