Ravensberg is a horror-themed town setting suitable for 5th-level Pathfinder characters and above. It is generic enough to be placed in any ongoing campaign. The small town lies nestled near a forest of unmistakable evil, wherein lies an ancient structure known as the Black Keep. The fortress is now filled with necromancers and undead, and its darkness taints the surrounding area. Other horrors plague the townsfolk, as well: lycanthropes, a dullahan, a vampire, and a coven of witches.

The villains abound.

But where are the heroes? That’s where your players come in.

*Note: Ravensberg was named for a real place, not Ravenloft. It is a town, not a demiplane of dread. 

Explore this horrific town created by students in a Winthrop University writing class taught by Christina Stiles. By supporting this product, you are aiding the students and faculty of the English Department of Winthrop University, as all collected monies from this Pathfinder version will be donated to the department funds for scholarships and academic travel. The fund's name is the J. Spratt and Sandra Hagler White Endowment of Winthrop University's English Department. 

Thank you for your support!

Yes. I licensed it from Peter Bradley, who works for Troll Lord Games.

@GeoCentric D, considering I am a fan of the game, absolutely! We have a 5e version coming up, too. I'll put C&C on my list to create.

Within the next two weeks, Wayne. I have the characters done. I just need to collate them for the layout artist and tweak the bits that are part of the third chapter.

Yep, keep an eye out. I'll likely just load it with the PF one. A C&C version is in the works, also.

@Trentin B: Yep, I fixed it. Too much insomnia over the past few weeks! Thanks for pointing it out.

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.
