Happy Halloween!

I'm preparing a low-level one shot that'll revolve around a nightmare creature (or creatures) loose in an urban setting. The climax will probably occur in the Dimension of Dreams. I'm trying to think of a good "gimmick" where the PCs will discover that *something* is causing dream entities to manifest in the waking world (maybe a specific NPC, or a cursed room).

Curious to see what you all have planned!

As an aside, last year I ran Goodman Game's *excellent* module, "Sinister Sutures of the Sempstress", and the year before, their module "Bride of the Black Manse". Highly recommend both if you need something on short notice!

Friend played a Star Wars RPG as a teenager and really wants to try roleplaying again. I asked what he liked to do in his old Star Wars game, or what he likes best in video game RPGs, and he said:

"I think it'd be fun playing a Han Solo rogue who is good at talking his way into or out of trouble, and who sneaks around planting bombs and fighting dirty."

I want to run a single-session story with a social encounter and some sort of 'sandboxy' combat encounter, where he can approach a site from multiple angles. Probably run four hours.

Know of any Pathfinder modules (or other modules) that meet these criteria? Or advice on how to build one?

Sure it's excessive. Sure it's completely unnecessary. But binding all three volumes of the Book of the Damned together would be pretty metal, right?

While I would normally be up for the challenge of DIYing it, I'd hate to botch the binding process--the results would be too wasteful (my three volumes are perfectly fine as-is).

On the flip side, it seems that Bible restoration is a major source of business for professional bookbinding services. Commissioning someone to bind the Books of the Damned strikes me as, at best, perhaps a little eccentric. At worst... well, I certainly don't want to offend anyone.

So my question for you fine folks--moral and metaphysical ramifications aside--is this: how would you do it?

Or, HAVE you done it? I'd imagine someone out there has bound an old 1E module at some point or another.

My main concern is that I'd be stuffing three volumes--which were designed and formatted to each be bound on their own--into a single edition.

I suppose I could reach out for a quote and just hold off on mentioning the nature of the materials... But I figured someone here might have experience bookbinding themselves, or perhaps know of an Etsy account or something similar that would be excited (rather than repulsed) by my outreach.
