Hushed Hills


Hushed Hills doubles as an adventure location and toolbox to support running gothic horror adventures. It consists of:

  • 50 encounters that maintains a balance of combat, exploration, roleplay, and skill challenges.
  • 3 high-resolution regional maps (and 1 that includes all 3).
  • 3 multi-phased boss battles.
  • 21 NPC outlines and portraits.
  • 4 quests that tie the encounters, regions, boss battles, and NPCs together.

You can view the sample to see how the different assets are arranged to support use at the table. Below is a preview of the contents of the toolbox. The used art (e.g., NPC portraits, maps) is included in a supplementary zip file.

Hushed Hills - Overview of toolbox content

The encounters reference 5e OGL concepts (e.g., monsters), though adapting the content to any system should be trivial.

Background on the Hushed Hills

Far off the beaten path, the town of Kletva surrounds a sleepy lake. Its cobbled streets are quiet, its decayed houses and shops shuttered and still. A sense of unease fills the air, and an intangible miasma shrouds the town. The Crestfall Abbey reigns over the town from an adjacent plateau.

Some millennia ago, a bygone civilization battled an elder evil they could not destroy. Instead, they imprisoned it in a temple that the ages had buried. Recently, the evil seeped into the world, unleashing a plague that afflicted Kletva and the wilderness. The nuns uncovered scrolls describing a ritual that promised to revitalize the land. However, they were deceived and became the Godless Chimeras.

The Chimeras are now searching for a way to free their master while feeding their hunger with unwary travelers. The town’s blighted residents are subjugated to the service of the Chimeras. They aim to lead travelers to the forest without arousing suspicion. The abbey’s residents do not serve the elder evil but hide the recent history in fear and shame.

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.
