The Devil of Murder Cliffs (S&W)

The Devil of Murder Cliffs (S&W)

Watermarked PDF

In the pale light of the witching hour when the moon shows off its twin horns,
'Tis said that a devil rises from the deep with a murderous taste for the soul.
You will know ere he stalks for the crows love to talk
About how they have picked clean your bones.

An adventure for 4–6 characters of levels 3–5, though it can easily be scaled for lower- or higher-level adventurers. The adventure assumes at least one wizard, one cleric, and one rogue are in the party, though there is a fair amount of opportunity for other character classes, especially meat shields and sword swingers, to shine.

High in the cliffs along the timber road stands the Von Klarch Inn. Half ruin, half fortress, the repurposed manor serves as a waystation for adventurers seeking fame and fortune in the mountainous north. Built nearly 500 years ago, the inn started out as the estate of the wealthy Von Klarch family, who made their fortune trading with the northern dwarves.

In the intervening years, the family has fallen on hard times. Frequent attacks by the rising tide of gnolls, orcs, and trolls who overtook the the north over the intervening centuries wreaked havoc on large parts of the estate, destroying the north wing and shrinking the Von Klarchs' once substantial land holdings.

More recently, attacks by local bandits - allegedly captained by a man referred to as the Devil of Murder Cliffs in reference to local legend - have increased in frequency. These attacks threaten travelers on the road and are bad for business.

Others say a true devil released from its bondage once again stalks over the region of Murder Cliffs. Despite these troubles, the Von Klarch Inn is the only reasonably civilized to spend the night in the bandit-infested Murder Cliffs.

Please add a preview. I never buy without a preview, and neither should anyone else.

I'm going to double-down and ask other customers to refrain from buying this until a preview is posted. I think un-previewed products should be discouraged.

I agree with Raymond. People need to have an idea of what they are buying. The preview should show some of the actual adventure too, not just content pages and other stuff that really doesn't tell you much. Throw us a freakin' bone here

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.
