You made it! You've survived your first adventure, armed with a stick and with a hen by your side. You've watched your comrades and neighbors die, got undreamt-of riches and are now unwilling to go back to the pathetic life of a peasant. But you don't become a warrior just by grabbing a sword or a sorcerer after reading a book. This volume of The Phlogiston Books explores how a bunch of pathetic village peasants become a bunch of pathetic mercenaries, cutpurses, sorcerers, and holy men. And it does so with heroic quests that will inspire the bards' musical pieces, such as:

Pigs from the Pit

An adventure for newly-minted first level characters

After their first dangerous adventure, the survivors are having a hard time adjusting back to their slow and miserable rural lives. Days go on. The heroes languish in the tavern. Their stories, born out of spite and booze, make the rumors about the treasure rotting in their houses spread wide. All these come the attention of Parmenio "the Swineherd", the leader of a local band of highwaymen, who sets a devilish plan in motion to steal the riches that everyone is talking about!

The Stone Heir

An adventure for hardened level 1 characters

Marcial "the Bold", only heir to the Marquis of Burgstard, honored his nickname when he organized a hunting foray to hunt a fearsome basilisk. A few days later, the only survivor returned with the sad news that Marcial was boldly petrified in the beast's lair. The Marquis moved heaven and earth until he found an alchemist who could reverse the dramatic petrification, only to find out that the alchemist wasn't willing to go into the basilisk's lair to apply the required oils. The Marquis needs a band of courageous adventurers to recover the stone heir and bring it back to the castle. The reward is as plentiful as the mission is dangerous!

My first impression was that I was impressed by the professional quality of this book. From the beautiful cover to the layout to the old school black-and-white art, the whole thing is visually appealing. I plan to use the content within, too. [...]

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.
