The Ghost Downs

Watermarked PDF

A forgotten village on the edge of the Lich Lands, Arwadar scratches out its meager existence by farming and herding and providing for the occasional adventurous fools who wish to brave the Lich Lands to gain the fabled treasures of the Archmage Arwas-Dar.

The Ghost Downs is a small regional adventure for characters levels 4-6 containing a village, six challenging and unique adventure locations and four dungeons and tombs to explore. This six-square mile region is located in the eastern part of the Northern Tier Hexcrawl, which is a small region of the Rosewood Highlands.

Treasure and glory await those who would brave the Ghost of the Downs, the walking dead and the mysteries that surround the Tower of the Fallen Queen.

The Ghost Downs is a Highland Location, for use with Swords & Wizards in the Highlands, a rules variant (S&W).

We've added a free bonus at our publishing blog: - a parchment version of the Captain's Map.

For those who might be interested, I ordered a proof copy of the POD version this morning. Three times I messed up the cover format. Sorry about that!

Thanks for the interest, Matt. My intention was to have them ready at the same time... but I messed up the spine width on the print version so I have had to resubmit. I hope it will be ready soon.

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.
