The Horrendous Heap of Sixteen Cities!

Watermarked PDF

Extending above a haze of reeking steam rise sixteen peaks of garbage magically transported from sixteen different cities.  It spreads, like an ever-growing fungus, across the landscape, encompassing and corrupting nearly fifty square miles.  Hideous flies, crows, and vultures circle the piles, perpetually avoiding garbage falling from magical portals thousands of feet in the air.  Giant rats, skunks, maggots, and other manner of repugnant beasts scuttle about the surface, surviving off the offal.  Underneath, giant worms crawl through the debris.  Periodic explosions reform the horizon.  Some cultures call it “Sheoal”, others “Kol Katta”.  All, however, use the common vernacular “The Heap”.  And everywhere its name is synonymous with “Hell”.

THE HORRENDOUS HEAP OF SIXTEEN CITIES! is a sandbox fantasy adventure.  Contained within are original and terrifying monsters, maps of The Heap, and multiple adventures for months of play.

  • 17 New Monsters

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.
