Dyrisa Castle

Watermarked PDF

Dyrisa is the second largest settlement in the Kingdom of Kanday and the principal seat of King Andasin IV and the royal House of Kand. The town prospers from its position on the road between Aleath and Coranan, two of Hârn's largest towns. The area around Dyrisa was sacred to the Ariathe tribe and is the site of many barrow graves.

The Dyrisa article describes the town's history, government, religion, and economics, and provides details for some of the settlement's craftsmen and other locations, including the mysterious barrow grave of Asagran the Ghoul, a depraved former ruler of Dyrisa. Includes full-color GM and player maps as well as complete floor plans for Caer Dyrisa, the king's castle.

This is a Hârn Classics article and was originally published in 1986 as part of the Kanday Kingdom Module.

This article now also includes two expansions previously sold separately:#5 Xerle Chapterhouse, a 4-page expansion describing a chapterhouse of the Order of the Checkered Shield, a Laranian fighting order; #6 Temple of Larani, a 6-page expansion describing Dyrisa’s Laranian temple and its residents. Full-color plans of both building are included, along with several adventure hooks the GM can use to bring the locations into play.

Original electronic
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.
