Bring me the Head of Tuskgutter!

I know the idea of wanted posters in a typical fantasy TTRPG world is a little dodgy, but they're awesome props for players.

Pathfinder's "Kingmaker" Adventure Path is not only a great tabletop campaign but formed the basis of an equally fun video game from Owlcat Games. In many ways, it's a reimagining of the classic hex crawls of old-school D&D. Travel hither and thither, battle the forces of evil, bring civilization to the wilderness, and make lots and lots of money.

I have two versions of a wanted poster from the initial section of the campaign set at Oleg's Trading Post. The first is plain greyscale. Print it out on faux parchment, trim it to size, and you're good to go. The second version is for use with color printers and includes a background parchment texture. Print the "Reward" page, flip it over, and then print the blank parchment image on the back.

I do want to mention the posters should be trimmed according to the faint guide marks in each corner of the page. People handle bog-standard 8 1/2 by 11-inch paper every day. Resizing your handouts and paper props to avoid using standard sheets helps immensely with immersiveness.

To get the full-sized, high-resolution versions of each image, right click, open the link in a new tab, and then right click again to download directly.
