  1. A place to which a wizard withdraws from the world to pursue mastery.
  2. A place of magic and plasms and grotesques and horrors and treasures and doorways to other worlds.
  3. A place which, when abandoned by the wizard but with its treasures and dangers remaining more or less intact, is a terrible and antic catastrophe in process.
  4. A place which makes for marvelous location-based adventures.

An review This supplement clocks in at 155 pages, already minus editorial, covers, etc. My review is based on the print hardcover, and I do not own the pdf-version, so I can’t comment on its electronic features. It should be n [...]

Obscure jargon, badly organized, with redundant sections and no real inspirational value. Absolutely not recommended. [...]

This might be one of the most evocative and fascinating book that explains Vancian magic within a context of fantasy adventures. It provides a framework for creating detailed, comprehensive and fascinating wizard's towers, ripe for plunder and explorat [...]

This is one of those products where its value depends on what you want from a sourcebook on a subject, in this case wizard's towers. Do you want a book with crunchy rules for construction and fully detailed and mapped examples? Well, this produc [...]

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.
