I don't know how the author consider these to be Adventure seeds.

These are basically not even a plot but A situation idea such as a "monster attacks."

Or, literally:
QUEST for Macguffin
And then the supposed plot twist is "Location Unknown (Treasure Hunt)"



Nothing else.

Yes the formatting is pretty using something like naturalcrit.

I tried to leave a review but it told me I had not purchased it even though I got it for 0.0, on a whim.

What it does need is a little bit fleshing out because the author is claiming:

"The 20 Basic Adventure Seeds contains 20 bulletproof, fundamental setups used in storytelling across literature, television, movies, and more. Each adventure seed comes with six additional notes to twist it into something new."

How is the word "quest" a fundamental setup?

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.
