Critical Hits #15 ? Beast of Blackwall Canyon
an encounter by Simon Lucas

D20 System

10 Pages/color
Encounter Level 9

Critical Hits is a series of fantasy encounters created to be dropped into an existing campaign or played as a single evening's entertainment. This popular range of products provides DM and player alike with unusual and interesting, sometimes comical but always memorable encounters.

The Beast of Blackwall Canyon fits easily into any overland wilderness trek, providing a short, violent distraction for your players.

Arriving at the foot of a mighty mountain range, the last stop is a small temple to the Lady Agatha, Guardian of Travelers. The priests of the Lady Agatha organize caravans to travel through the treacherous Blackwall Canyon - the quickest and safest route through the mountain range. It is several days' journey through the narrow file and something sinister lies in it; something that preys on travelers. Large groups can usually fight off attack, but before the priests of the Lady Agatha opened their temple, few survived the journey through Blackwall Canyon. Can the party defend the caravan and make their way through the dark passage in the mountains, or will the mysterious 'Angels' of Blackwall claim yet more souls?

  • Versatile - Critical Hits can easily be used as a distraction in an ongoing campaign or as a one-shot short scenario

  • Memorable - Each Critical Hits encounter is crammed with unforgettable NPCs and situations that encourage creative role-playing

  • Value for Money - At $3.75, Critical Hits are easy to pick up and hard to put down!

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.
