A Man on the Road
6-panel brochure, 8.5 x 11 inches unfolded. Full color. New.
A rider looms on the road ahead. His tattered clothes and ravaged face competes for grotesquery with his mangy, tick-riddled horse. His hefty baggage bulges temptingly. Would you dare rob a man on the road?
This pamphlet adventure for Old-School Essentials answers the question: What if an apparently typical random encounter held far more in store than the party would ever dream of bargaining for. Contained here is a single, devilishly difficult to kill NPC with endless tricks up his sleeves, including:
- False identities to lure the party into careless complacency.
- Fighting styles and underhanded tactics to thwart any plan and keep the party on their toes.
- Foul vulgarities unleashed by his fetid tongue, such as: Pestilent corpse fit only to satisfy a blind mule and blaspheming devil-humper.
- Worthy and strange loot to reward the victorious.
- And more.
