Astray in the Woodlands is the first adventure module in the Larrgn Steelehart's Deadly Encounters series for Creatures & Chaos.
Traveling along the weed encroached road we saw a hunched shadow up ahead. The shadow didn?t move - thinking an ambush imminent we drew our blades and notched arrows. As the horses trotted nearer, the sounds of sobbing and crying were heard. Hiding in the shadows nearby was a dark silhouette. Renwald silently stepped-down from his horse and cautiously sidestepped the twigs and branches as not to make a sound, while we trained our arrows in his direction. Sword drawn, Renwald arched around the tree. Behind the tree was a small human child crying, his knees tucked under his chin.
Is the child a sign of impending doom? Lost due to war or monster? Only one way to find out.....
Astray in the Woodlands is a supplemental adventure for a band of four adventurers of 6th to 8th-level. It can take place between campaign adventures, or as a small insert into a longer campaign adventure.

Layout/Organization: None. The text appears to be in first draft state and no attempts have been made to lay it out for easier reading. Statistic blocks are thrown down on the page without any logic as to why they are there. Key information is miss [...]

My initial impressions of Astray in the Woodlands were that it would have benefitted from better editing and layout, which probably aren?t the first impressions that a publisher wants their products to make. The actual adventure summary consis [...]

This is a clever, but small/short encounter. The encounter can basically be divided into the introductory encounter (which establishes a motive to search for a group) and a secondary ?group? meeting. After that the actions of the player characters wi [...]

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.
