A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for four 5th-level PCs by Creighton Broadhurst and Steve Hood

Beneath the fetid roots of a noisome swamp linger the pathetic remnants of a once proud and noble tribe. Laid low by a powerful narcotic administered by their ambitious (but wildly paranoid) mistress, the lizardfolk of the Dark Oak are but a shadow of their former greatness. Now below the slumbering body of a diseased treant she plots to bring bloody slaughter to the folk of the nearby villages before her followers forget their proud heritage and sink into a lethargy from which there is no escape.

For this first time in print, this newly updated and expanded collector’s edition of Dark Oak includes not only all the original material, but the village of Thornhill to serve as a base for the PCs as well as all new details of the Redfern Swamp. Linking material to tie Thornhill and the machinations of the Dark Oak are also included so a GM can quickly and easily insert this multi-session adventure into his home campaign. 

PRAISE FOR THE ORIGINAL DARK OAK

"It’s reminiscent of old-school dungeon crawls but with a bit more definition and purpose other than hack-and-slash and gather the treasure...Dark Oak is a great, short adventure module for Pathfinder.”

–RPG Chronicle (five-stars)

"Editing is top notch...formatting also rocks. I do consider it to be a supreme example of an adventure you can just pick up and play with your group without having to prepare it in advance.“

–Thilo Graf (five-stars)

“Dark Oak is the sort of excellent scenario I've come to expect from Creighton Broadhurst. It is presented in a clear and precise way and comes complete with some outstanding art and maps. Indeed, the art and maps could be considered to be worth the price alone!”

--Dave McAlister (five-stars)
“I am planning on using this adventure in my own game, as it is short, and has a nice mix of roleplay and combat.”
–Lord Snow (five stars)

The Collector's Dark Oak Firstly, I will admit to having not read the original Dark Oak pdf so this will be a first timer's review of the adventure as opposed to a comparison. That being said, the Foreword tells you exactly what's been added to [...]

Format
Scanned image
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.
