“It’s early and we should be out and about but I just can’t keep my eyes open any longer”

“Sweet Dreams in Ashfold” was originally designed for the Briscon Games Convention 1990 as a competitive RPG Tournament and was completely revised for the Maryborough Fraserpop 2018 Cultural Festival. It’s a low level game that has an emphasis on mystery and deduction and requires the players to come up with an innovative plan to take down the monster hiding in the isolated village of Ashfold. The creature (known as a Mistweaver) is creating a magical Mist that puts most people to sleep at sundown and also forms a compulsion in the minds of the villagers to prevent them wandering away from the village. The monster has a clutch of eggs that are due to hatch very soon and the locals are going to be their food source! The adult Mistweaver is a formidable foe and is unlikely to be defeated in direct combat so it’s up to the players to use their ingenuity to defeat the creature.

“Sweet Dreams in Ashfold” is one of the most simple, yet memorable games I have designed and players and GMs alike never fail to enjoy unravelling the mystery of Ashfold’s ‘sleeping sickness’, the challenge of fighting the monster and the interactions with the NPCs, especially the goblin Makaar (who went on to guest star in a campaign that I ran). I hope you are entertained by this adventure as much as the many players who have enjoyed it over the past 35 years.

Be warned, this is a labor intensive adventure for the GM. Not because its missing anything, but because it contains everything. A good adventure, but it will likely be completed in a single session and its an 82 page pdf. Think about t [...]

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.
