Dead Man’s Hand is a tale of desperate gamblers and corrupt lawmen, of criminal subtlety and supernatural mystery. Characters begin at 1st level, and by the end of the campaign they should by 9th or 10th level. The ideal party size is four characters. If your group is larger or smaller, you can adjust the adventure’s difficulty by reducing or increasing the number of enemies present in a given encounter.
     Dead Man’s Hand is set in the American Frontier circa 1872. The region, known as as Western Valley, is a fictional territory not intended to be a specific location. As such, there is no conflict with birthplace or recent places of living for the characters, Everyone arrives in Western Valley just the same, and are no culture is more foreign than any other. A combination of roads, railroads, and even a few rivers connect the various settlements of the valley.
     Adventure Supplements. You can play this adventure with just the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS basic rules and the Frontier campaign setting, which contains all the enemies and items not described in this book. The Frontier campaign setting can be found here on DriveThruRPG.com.




Dakota Territory. 1872.

The gold that once birthed the boomtown of Red Gulch has begun to dry out. To keep pioneers in the city and invite in more, Mayor Ellis has called for a poker tournament with stakes too high for folks to pass up. On the second night of the tournament, however, a tavern girl screams as her drunken patron slumps over with a knife in his back. Over time, more and more residents and visitors – many of them participants in the tournament – end up six feet under. Can the remaining players and curious bystanders solve the mystery of Red Gulch before it’s too late?

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.
