The kingdom of Asan has had many rulers over the years and some of the royal items of magic have been lost in battle or in quest. The kings of Asan constantly battle with bugbear tribes and clans of orcs and goblins that raid the countryside. They have also been known to war with the elvish kingdom of Ilthdruir to the north and the Baron of Umberon to the south who both value the rich mineral and metal wealth of the kingdom of Asan.
Below Asan is its most closely guarded secret and the source of its great wealth. Caverns below the city of Asan contain portals to the elemental planes of fire and earth. Elementals travel through the caverns from one plane to another and inadvertantly leave gems and precious metals behind in their wake. The "Mines" of Asan are guarde day and night by the royal guards bound to the House of Asan. The slaves who work the mines do so naked so they cannot steal anything for themselves.
The kingdom is threatened from within by greedy nobles who constantly seek to supplant the king and take the city's riches for themselves. All of the noble houses fight a clandestine war within the various cities of the kingdom to undo each other and gain more power for themselves. Merchants vie with one another to someday buy a title and join the nobillity. The common folk work hard to someday buy thier way into the Merchant's Guild. The Thieve's Guild preys on everyone and constantly seek information to sell to one house or another in their constant clandestine wars.

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.
