Kingdom of Melderyn

Watermarked PDF

Melderyn, Hârn’s oldest kingdom, is named for the island off the southeast coast of Hârn on which it was founded. The many strange goings-on and mystical persons attributed to the island, which is commonly called “The Wizards’ Isle,” have given the realm a reputation as a place of mystery and enchantment.

Melderyn is an exciting kingdom for your Hârn campaign. The kingdom is the gateway for trade and travel between Hârn and the realms of the Lythian continent. Three barbarian tribal nations inhabit lands claimed by Melderyn: the reclusive Bujoc, horse-breeding Hodiri, and primitive Solori. Nomadic gargun (Hârnic orcs) prowl the northern reaches of the realm.

Melderyn’s King Chunel Toron is advised by a secret assembly of scholars, wizards, and priests called the Council of Eleven. Although Melderyn’s kings have traditionally used diplomacy to achieve their ends and no Melderyni king has fielded an army on Hârn, its history is not without violence. The kingdom has suffered attacks by foreigners, including two viking raids by Ivinian pirates in the last 15 years. Melderyni knights and adventurers have carved out petty kingdoms and joined causes that stained Hârn with blood, including the crusade currently being waged by the Laranian Order of the Lady of Paladins against the Solori tribes.

The Kingdom of Melderyn module is supplemented by other Columbia Games publications, including keeps, castles, and adventure sites. The political, religious, and esoteric factions active in Melderyn provide a variety of opportunities for adventure.

For some reason Columbia Games sells their PDFs for less on their own website. How odd. $30 for this one there.

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.
