A new, exclusive PDF adventure for the Dying Earth RPG
By Ian Thomson

A Cugel-Level adventure of mid-range difficulty, easily adaptable for novices.

Originally created as a tournament scenario then lovingly redesigned, The Day of Quelo is an easy-to-run, well organized scenario.

The noble Twegg, merchant of Kaiin and breeder of fine (if somewhat freakish) beasts, has an urgent delivery to make. Thus he is seeking a few reliable fellows to deliver a quelo - a sluggish and good-natured beast - only one day's walk along the tranquil Derna Road to its new owner.

What could be a simpler way to earn a purse of terces, you might think? A relaxing day in the country - money for nothing in fact. THINK AGAIN! And welcome to the nightmare that is: The Day of the Quelo!

The Day of the Quelo is eccentrically illustrated with pregenertated characters and hand-outs to make this an easy to play enjoyable experience.

This adventure includes a free copy of the Dying Earth Quick Start Rules, making it self-contained

An ambiguous set-up that leads into a series of amusing escapades and reverses, with a fair amount of actual danger (being a converted tournament module) and difficulty, up to the chance of a particularly satisfying finish. A nicely structured scenario [...]

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.
