False Promises

False Promises

Watermarked PDF

For two weeks, shipments of ore and gold from Principal Mine 127 have not arrived in Bordovia.  All messengers sent to the mine to investigate, including Sivonan soldiers, have not returned.  Baron Ungur Wyrmbul demands to know what has happened to his top producing mine.  He cannot send any more troops to investigate the mine and nearby town of Kwaltist, with his border forts near Darkhome already insufficiently supported.  Who will investigate the missing shipments and solve the mystery at Kwaltist?

False Promises is an adventure for 3-5 players, with characters level 1-3.  It's playable with the classic d20 game systems of the 1980s.

I'm seeing two different files for download, both of which look pretty similar. Is one newer than the other?

Erik, You're right. I see 2 files too. There is only 1 pdf for this adventure, the 2nd one is redundant I believe. I'll try to remove one after I check them both out. Thanks for letting me know! - ThomW

... not to mention the one and only oldest and most generic adventure-plot in the world

In total, there are 20 pages, including color front and back cover, and 18 pages b&w interior. $5 covers the cost of writing the adventure, color cover art, and interior b&w illustrations and maps.

Thank you for your constructive feedback. I'm assuming you've read the entire book already, and know the details of the yet to be released part two and three.

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.
