The Hunt is a fully detailed random encounter designed for a typical group of 6th-8th level adventurers. While traveling along a country road, the heroes encounter a horrible magical beast that is rapidly depopulating a small hamlet and the surrounding countryside. Everything depends on their ability to track the beast down, out smart it, and kill it before it kills everyone in the valley. This encounter includes maps of the local area, a new template for Enchanted Creatures, d20 statistics for an advanced dire enchanted panther, and detailed description of how to pit the characters in a desperate race against time where hundreds of lives hang in the balance. Like all supplements in this series, this PDF includes information on. the background and terrain effects of the encounter, the monster's tactics, and possible ways for the heroes to gain bonus experience points from this encounter.
