The Echoes of Heaven Campaign Setting:
Pages: 205

Once Man stood in the full glory of God. Now he must strain to hear even the echoes of Heaven.
Veteran game designer Robert J Defendi brings you a world of darkness and danger, where a monolithic church has split into dozens of quarreling factions and holy war looms like a shadow. Here, strength and brutality win the day and only those with the most faith, honor, and courage can stand against the terrible tyranny of those who would enslave everyone of a different belief, a different philosophy, a different race.

Worse, it is a world infected by the very fabric of Hell itself.

The Echoes of Heaven is a game world of infinite possibilities, where the nature of Hell corrupts the Mortal Realm, creating adventure sites both many and varied. Ulcers shape themselves to the minds of the Demon controlling them, the dreams of the former inhabitants, sometimes even the minds of adventurers. In an Ulcer, even the most basic laws of nature can break down, making possible any adventure the GM can envision. Ulcers grow, mature, and devour. Only prompt actions can stop them from becoming permanent, and one day an Ulcer will destroy the world.

The Throne of God:
Pages: 53
An adventure that spans ten thousand years.

The city of Belm is the center of culture, government, and commerce for the Kingdom of Ludremon. But when a young girl disappears just miles outside the city walls at the same time the cathedral's holy relic is stolen, who will dare undertake an adventure that leads into the tattered fringes of reality itself.

An adventure for 3rd level characters.

Comes with free Campaign Cartographer Symbols, good for use in CC3.

Requires the world's most popular roleplaying game to play.

I found the setting to be very engaging and descriptive. It blends nicely the familiar of our own world, the eternal struggle of good vs. evil, and traditional fantasy elements into a cohesive whole. While it bears similarity to traditional fantasy [...]

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.
