Malice From the Middle Vale


For as long as you can remember you have toiled on your father's farm while dreaming of heroic deeds, exciting adventures and distant lands far beyond the borders of the civilized kingdom of the Angle.

The day finally arrives and at last you can leave behind the mundane duties of the farmhand. You strike out in search of freedom and adventure. But adventure is already coming!

Malice Varicella-Zoster - the Irgin Crone of Gungingeth - and her coven of witches intend to wreak havoc in the Angle, but also to steal that which is not rightfully theirs. Before the night is over they will take everything you hold dear and force you into a quest more perilous than anything you ever imagined.

Set in the magical fantasy realm of Yarnia, Malice From the Middle Vale is the first of the Scythe-Bearer gamebook Trilogy in which you become the master of your own destiny and decide how the story unfolds.

The Woven Path series explores the mythical land of Yarnia. Requiring nothing more than you, a pencil, an eraser and a calculator, strike out in the role of Scythe Bearer of Breetun and explore the sprawling realm of Yarnia.

This PDF is the digital version of the published book Malice From the Middle Vale. You can purchase the print version here 

Please note: this is a gamebook which you play solo, choosing which path to take, which perils to face and which monsters to fight. This is not an adventure module or a roleplaying game.

The old edition had 539 pages, the new and updated one has only 226 (it's in A4 format).

Fun adventure book, though you may want to make it more clear in the description that this product is more like a Fighting Fantasy game book and not a traditional TTRPG campaign sourcebook.

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.
