It might even be a nice idea, but $8.99 simply is somewhat far too much over the top for a meager 36 pages altogether ... which makes for about 30 pages of unkown content ... in fact half the price still could be considered quite expensive - even in comparison to the top publishers. For example I can buy the new title from Kobold Press for $9.99 comprising 82 pages of content - and at the same time I can be rather sure to get some very good content.

Thank you for your interest in our product!

I respect your point of view. Let me go into some detail as to why The Kobolds of Tzarker Mines is designed, and priced the way that it is.

When I was researching the kind of products that I want to produce, I spent a lot of time looking at products that are out there, how they are designed and laid out, how much and what type of artwork there is, how the maps are designed and laid out, as well as the writing styles involved.

I decided that for my first few products that I'm trying to emulate the size and quality of the 36 page full-color modules that Paizo has published for years, and gives you a full day or two worth of adventuring. It is an artistic and publishing choice. It means that along with a high-quality adventure, there is full-color art used throughout. The maps are full-color, with a lot of time spent on shading, texture, etc. I also decided to include a couple of themed vignettes in each of these adventures that I'll...See more

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.
