The Manor, Issue #5


Issue #5 of The Manor is here and full of old school gaming fun.  Inside you'll find:

  • Four nasty Villains to populate your game. 
  • A batch of horrible concoctions to throw in your treasure chests.  I guarantee they will never assume what's inside a potion bottle ever again.
  • A tavern name generator.  Let it do your thinking for you.
  • A consumer report on dungeon doors.  It's good to know the pros and cons before spending a single coin on a door that doesn't meet your needs.
  • A table of city encounters that can quickly generate adventure hooks or make a boring errand into an event. 

Go ahead and knock on the Manor door, I'm sure someone will be home.  We have fresh cocktails waiting.  Don't pay attention to the screams.  I'm sure they'll fade eventually.

One of the cool things about the early days of this hobby was finding great little zines of new content. Sometimes it was an alternate rule, or new monster or class. Some of these were good, many were mediocre but all of them were a lot of fun. Back [...]

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.
