Fantastic Locations: Fane of the Drow (3.5)

Selected Option:
Watermarked PDF
Softcover, Standard Color Book
Watermarked PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book

Fane of the Drow features two double-sided poster maps designed for roleplaying and miniatures skirmish play. An accompanying 16-page adventure can be dropped into any campaign. Enemies consist of creatures from various D&D miniatures.

Miniatures skirmish scenarios are included for additional play options, written to allow Dungeon Masters to seamlessly integrate D&D Miniatures into the adventure. The two poster maps, which are scaled for tabletop play, can be put together to form the temple of the drow, while the reverse sides feature other fantastic dungeon locations players can explore.

Note on the print edition: The maps have been included as bonus pages in the softcover book.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

Man, I really wish they'd release the last two fantastic locations maps

So how is a poster-sized map included as "bonus pages"? Doesn't seem very playable to me. This is an odd choice to make available as print-on-demand.

Agreed, I was really excited as I saw this up for this week, but now I'm just confused. The posters are what would make the print version worthwhile...

I guess the map will be cut into 8.5" x 11" sections, and then the user removes the pages and . . . tapes them together?

The main file contains the adventure and the four maps split in two pages each for easier printing.
The accompanying two pdfs have two pages each with the maps reproduced in full.
So maps are shown segmented or not depending on your preference.

If it's like other PoD titles with oversized maps, the maps will be cut up into single pages and bound into the book with everything else - essentially completely unusable. (The way they're bound means it's also basically impossible to separate or remove the pages without damaging them or losing parts of them.)

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.
