The Adventures

Escorting the Goddess (1620ST)
The heroes escort a Lunar friend to her marriage in a Solar Household, who belongs to the Boat of the Silver Hind association. This does not go without incident. As well as acting as the players’ introduction to the gods and goddesses of the Lunar way, the players also meet in passing characters that are later to play a more integral part in the epic.

The Death of the Heir (1621ST)
Yanis, the heir of the Five Trees of Bounty Association, dies while on a tour of the Barbarian Wastes of Prax. During the period of mourning, the enemies of the Five Trees of Bounty take advantage, and come up with a horrific scheme to discredit the favoured of Yelm. Can the heroes solve the mystery and expose the scheme, preserving their Association’s honour and status?

Achec’s Tomb (1624ST)
In the maze of legal cases brought by the Five Trees of Bounty’s rival associations, after Yanis’ death, is a case to move the tomb of Achec. This tomb looks over the Great Market in the Old City and reputably the spirit of Achec helps the city’s merchants deal with outside barbarians. The Seven Nights of Glory makes its move by putting forward the proposal that the tomb should be moved to the New Market in Moonie town. Can the players successfully put forward a case for the tomb to stay where it is? Can they discover the secret of the tomb?

Last Seen in Pavis (1625ST)
Yanis, the heir that is presumed dead is reported seen alive in the barbarian city of Pavis. Dodging agents of the Seven Nights of Glory, the Heroes must make their way to the furthest corner of the Lunar Empire and find out the truth of the matter. Question is will they like what they find?

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.
