The traveller’s spirits rose high as he stood before the gate and rapped a light rap; but hearing no answer he knocked a second knock and a third; yet there came no sign.

So strengthening his heart he cried aloud, “Hail , ye people of the city! I am a stranger and a way farer; have you no honour or hospitality?” He repeated his cry a second time and a third; but still there came no reply.

The Tale of the Cursed Prince ~ The 1001 Nights

The City of 10 Rings is a great metropolis of dark fantasy and eccentric NPCs. Within the pages are sections devoted to each of the 10 areas (or rings) of the city, that describe 100 pathways, 100 locations and 100 possible events that could occur when exploring - to give a Tale-Weaver inspiration for 1001 adventure-seeds.

The City of 10 Rings can be used as an idea-generator for whenever PCs encounter a large, mysterious city. It also introduces additional names and NPC's for use within the Nights of the Crusades setting.

An example of an event is the following:
The Ring of Silver: Event 4 - Starving Beggar-Child: A crying child passes by. Her torn feet kick dust onto her ragged robe, and she reeks of filth and pomegranate. If the PCs seek to help her, they will find that she is looking for her golden bird. Locating the bird will take the PCs through a number of locations within the city – quick and cunning characters have the best chance to catch it. If the PCs can return the child’s bird, she will thank them and ask for a gift of charity. If the characters refuse her request, the starving child will snap the bird’s neck and eat it.

Tales for Dark RoadsTales for Dark Roads: Your players have set out on a long journey over the lawless land between cities and villages. During these times of war, petty rulers have their army stretched. They must defend their strongholds but also march out to contain their enemies. This has left the road to chaos. Bandits and worse take what they can, from those who are not swift enough to avoid them, or cannot hold their possessions through force of arms. The road is a place where the curtain of civilisation is torn apart, and the stage is given to the beasts and killers amongst men. Yet there are those who take the gamble on barren paths; facing starvation, robbery and the elements, in the hope of gaining a reprieve from poverty or the confinement of besieged cities.

100 Travel Encounters - Tales for Dark Roads can be used as an idea-generator for whenever PCs begin a perilous overland journey.

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.
