Read what others are saying about The Village of Briarton...

"Definitely a product that GMs would find very useful. There aren't enough things like this for a GM to use out there. Villages...that can be easily plugged into any fantasy campaign setting are sorely lacking in the d20 market."
Anna M. Dobritt, RPG Freelancers Guide

"I particularly like the inclusion of a home and hearth deity. These were far more common historically than they seem to be in role-playing products and add some verisimilitude to the setting."

"If I wanted to start characters as being from a specific place, I would want to start in Briarton, because then I have a ready-made place to adventure from that I can actually make come alive for players."

" published module provides such a well-detailed base of operations, an essential ingredient in an ongoing campaign. Village of Briarton goes beyond the majority of town and village resources. There's no better village supplement currently on the market."

The basic concept of this book is to provide a generic but beautifully detailed village (or small town), which the DM can place in his campaign world - possibly as a base or as somewhere the characters will pass through. To this end, the history, econo [...]

Great base of operations for a standard D&D game. The town will fit into just about any Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms type fantasy world. The characters are interesting, but now weird enough to frighten off the PCs. Most of the time, PCs need a peac [...]

This is a very nice product. A place you could base you players in if you so desired or just have them pass through if that's what you want. There are lots of interesting plot hooks. The histories of the NPCs are detailed and well thought out. The [...]

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.
