“Taking the mountain road is indeed faster, but bandits live in the ruins near the caldera. Only take the road if you must reach your destination quickly. It will take weeks to circumnavigate the mountains staying on the lowlands, but it’s much safer.’”

—Post-Apocalyptic Survivor

 Ambush Road includes a single level exterior map of a winding canyon road carved out of the surrounding mountains. There are mountains to the north and south of the road, with a water-filled caldera to the north center and a circular ruin to the northeast.

 Ambush Road can be utilized in modern, post-apocalyptic, or horror games. It could also be used in fantasy games with the ruins from an ancient fallen culture. It can also be an interesting track in a straightaway course or drag racing kind of game.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Canyon Run:  Bandits have entrenched themselves in the nearby mountains and taken over a key canyon road that acts as a short cut over a large mountain range. The lowland villagers warn the group of making a run through the canyon and advise going around the mountain range the long way. But the long way around costs vital gasoline; the canyon road is the fastest route to cut through the mountains.

If the group goes up to the canyon pass, they have to survive a gauntlet of bandits and traps along the road to get through. The bandits have made their camp in the ruins of an old circular structure, perhaps a lighthouse that stood before the apocalypse. The bandits seem to be excavating the ruins, digging for old food in cans and lantern oil for light at night. The caldera lake is their water source. They also ambush travelers driving through the pass to rob them of their supplies. If the player characters can defeat the bandits, they’ll find a cache of food, oil, ammo, and enough water to fill their canteens to get over the mountains easily from the lake.

Love it. This group does good work. There is plenty of detail, and the images are provided with hexes, squares, and plain to suit your playing preference. I highly recommend this product and DreamScope's other products. [...]

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.
