DramaScape Fantasy Volume 82

“I need a group of bold adventurers that are willing to investigate a nearby spiral maze and touch the statue in its center. I offer you a priceless gift in exchange for your help. This…ahem…magic wand…can shoot…uh…lightning… to strike down your foes from afar. I will give it to you as payment for your help although it has a limited...herm…magical charges.”—Pale Man in a Large-Brimmed Black Hat, Cloak, Gloves, and Boots

 The Beacon is a single level exterior and interior map of a circular maze with a statue in its center.

 The Beacon is intended for use in a fantasy games with the center statue emitting a magical light. It can also be used in science fiction games with the center statue as a piece of technology that emits an electric flare instead, perhaps sealed in the maze by a superstitious local populace afraid of a curse after the initial discoverer dropped dead from a heart attack after activating the beacon. The Beacon could also be of use in horror games as an object that emits a light into another dimension and draws entities through a portal into our reality.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 The Spinning Spiral Maze: The player characters are hired by a pallid man in a dark tavern or inn at night to get to the center of a labyrinth (see quote). The first thing they notice is something very strange as they approach, a bird flying directly over the maze that comes crashing down like a comet with a splat. The maze itself also slowly seems to rotate making mapping difficult as well as giving people inside the maze vertigo and nausea. Who knows what traps, monsters, and other obstacles lurk inside the maze to prevent them from reaching the center?

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.
