Critical Hits #4 ? The Butcher of Bakersville
an encounter by Kirsty Crabb & Simon Lucas

D20 System

10 Pages/color

Critical Hits provide the DM with a one-shot encounter, suitable for a single evening's play. This popular range of products fill the spaces between story elements with unusual and interesting, sometimes comical but always memorable encounters. Fitting easily into any standard fantasy setting, they are generic enough to be dropped in almost anywhere, providing a brief distraction in a longer campaign.

In this encounter, the characters arrive in the sleepy town of Bakersville. After a warm welcome, events take a turn for the worse, and it seems the inbred inhabitants hide a dark secret. Can the players uncover the grisly mystery of Bakersville, or is there murder on the menu?

  • 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 $2.50, Critical Hits are easy to pick up and hard to put down!

I've purchased all of the Critical Hits to date and while I find most of them useful, this one was a big disappointment. The plot and the main culprit is just too easily guessed in my opinion with very little red herrings or sown confusion put [...]

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.
