When a heretical priestess met execution at the hands of conspirators, her immortal consort vowed to carry out her dying curse. Now, after centuries of plotting and waiting, the sky and stars have aligned perfectly to finally unleash her long-simmering revenge. Amidst the excitement over this celestial conjunction, a lone voice proclaiming the coming danger is mysteriously silenced and the wrath of the burning sun smites the population with a scorching curse. The authorities are overwhelmed, but can your heroes forestall this agonizing vengeance set in motion ages ago? To save the soul of a city, they must confront its past and its present to save its future, destroying the accursed avatars of a long-dead enemy—all before the twilight of the Festered Sun.

Jason N: I sent you an email as requested below on August 9th titled "Beneath the Festered Sun product" requesting a PDF copy of "Kingdoms" 5E. I had purchased the softcover of Kingdoms directly from Amazon and understand their was a printing error with one of the tables in the book. Since I can't replace the physical copy of that book, I would like to have a PDF of it so any future corrections will be automatically updated via this site. Hope to hear back soon and thank you. TT

Hi Thor,

Thanks for letting us know. You are quite right that this version had retained text from a Pathfinder version of the product. I've let layout know and we'll be getting a fixed version uploaded as soon as it comes back from them.

As for the CRs, we have a two-stage review process with our experienced 5E developers, one doing the primary work and a second person reviewing their work and addressing issues they see with the first developer. As you're unsatisfied with your purchase, send me an email at and I'll be happy to send you a different product of your choice.

This product sounded very interesting with its theme. Too bad it was such a disappointment thus far. 1. Starting at the beginning of the module it references nothing but Pathfinder and Paizo. This is the 5E edition. 2. The CR ratings on the various creatures are way out of whack. Answer: Have someone proofread and edit before putting a module on the market. And have someone that's familiar with 5E handle the creatures and can set a more appropriate CR.At this juncture, this module is no where near worth its price.

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.
