Crossroads to Valor Freebie 1

Watermarked PDF

Ever come to a city that you have no map for? Maybe some small hamlet mentioned in an adventure? A town with businesses you know about but nothing about the town itself?  Crossroads to Valor is the answer for your needs.<o:p></o:p>

Crossroads to Valor series has several towns and villages with at least three versions for you to chose from.<o:p></o:p>

"Graphic version" In color with a fancy background for the players to see.<o:p></o:p>

"Player's version" A plain version which can be printed out on fancy paper or given an aging treatment.<o:p></o:p>

"Gamemaster's version".  Sometimes the maps are correct, sometimes there are differences.  Fortifications are missing or repaired, moats and rivers are changed, sometimes there are even extra sewer levels that may (or may not) be correct.<o:p></o:p>

This free copy has The Township of Fao, built up within the ruins of Fao Keep.  You get all three versions of the map, along with general printing instructions and suggestions for printing and aging the map to use as props for your game.<o:p></o:p>

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.
