Risus: Toast of the Town - A Free Pulp-Fantasy Adventure


The town looks peaceful enough, but there’s a pillar of smoke from last night’s fire, burned corpses from the wreckage, and a demon strung up against the church in the market square. Dolemon Drake, a local hero, gives the call to all brave souls to join him in eradicating the devilish creatures infesting the sewers. Will our heroes join in Drake’s noble fight?

Toast of the Town is a free adventure module for Risus: The Anything RPG with a pretty map (Trostig town), a warm stack of groovy characters, a GM cheat-sheet, and more swashbuckling heroic adventure than most things you'll eat today. This adventure takes place in Uresia: Grave of Heaven along the shore of a remote mountain lake, but it's designed to slot painlessly into the fantasy world of your choice (or just pillage the setting material for your own fantasy city or town)!

I was lucky enough to be a play tester on this adventure module, and it does not disappoint! A beautifully structured adventure which has no black or white answer. It forces PCs and GMs to think outside the box. I highly recommend this module, and I th [...]

A top notch fantasy adventure and locale that be plopped down into any setting with only minor changes. The maps are hand crafted and finely detailed. Though the stats for premade characters and npcs are rendered in the rules-light Risus system, it is [...]

I would have given it a five, except that it is so big it is hard to move around from page to page. Once you do get to the next page, it is delightful. [...]

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.
