Watermarked PDF

Dave Hargrave's ARDUIN ADVENTURE is a classic introduction to role playing games and the Arduin Role Playing Game System. With its unique modular learning system, the ARDUIN ADVENTURE will enable anyone, age 12 or over, to learn important adventure gaming concepts in less than a hour.

The ARDUIN ADVENTURE's unique modular system makes it completely compatible with any D20 or other role playing system. It is infinitely expandable by enabling gamers to apply any part of it to another system, or part of another system to its own structure.

As a special bonus, the ARDUIN ADVENTURE includes "The Forgotten Tower": an exciting six-level dungeon adventure module complete with maps, detailed history, area description and filled with original Arduin monsters and treasures. Get yours NOW!

In an attempt to get all of the Arduin rules presented in AG I, II & III into a cohesive easy-to-use book, David A. Hargrave created this booklet.  This verison of Arduin Adventure is provided in the way it was presented originally in 1980.

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.
