Description:

This adventure was designed for 7th level characters and is for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Text from the back cover:

"After traveling through a land of rugged hills, dark forests and deep fjords, you arrive midday in the village of Honningstad. Today the locals are celebrating the Feast of the Dragon and you are welcome to join them. On this day each year the village awaits the return of an envoy sent to deliver a tribute of strong ale and hard-earned gold to the dragon in Fangcrag Keep. It is this tribute that keeps the dragon appeased, and for over 30 years the village has known peace.

As you enjoy the music, dancing, fine food and wonderful spirits, a member of the envoy staggers into the village, battered and bloodied. He says the envoy was attacked by giants and the tribute never reached the keep. Some men fought and were slain, while others were less fortunate. Rayn Brekston, nephew of Dame Margarete Brekston, ruler of these lands, was among those captured.

Men and women take up rusty spears and weathered shields intent to rescue their comrades, but you know these villagers, mostly farmers, brewers and fishermen, are not seasoned warriors and have little hope of success. Will you aid the folk of Honningstad by slaying the giants? If so, the dragon may awake and find his tribute not delivered. He would surely descend upon the village. But if you plan to barter with or slay the dragon, the giants' captives may suffer a horrible end.

Plan well brave adventurers, for the lives of many rest in your capable hands."

The Scroll of Omens

A unique feature of this adventure is the Scroll of Omens.

In the beginning of the adventure, the characters are given two difficult choices and little time to solve either dilemma. As they progress through the adventure, the conditions elsewhere in the world deteriorate. They are continually reminded through the use of omens, making them doubt their choices. This creates wonderful tension and gives a sense of urgency to everything the characters do.

The adventure plays perfectly well without the Scroll of Omens and is not required.

Full-Scale Maps

Also included with the .pdf of the adventure are .jpg maps scaled for use with various virtual tabletop programs.

EXCELLENT adventure. Told with a twist, ran this for a few groups of patrons at my shop. Every game was entirely different in a GREAT way! Fingers crossed we will see more of adventures like these from Carl Bussler. [...]

The Tribute, by Timeless Adventures, tries for something fairly innovative by combining two adventures in one. Players have a hard choice to make early in the adventure, that sends them down one of two directions. Because both choices have harsh consequen [...]

I participated in the play-test for The Tribute, and ran it for my players. It's a well-crafted adventure that gives a great structure to work from, but leaves leeway for interpretation of the events and the omens listed in the Scroll and that happen [...]

Format
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.
