Adventure Keys: The Tourney
   "The Tournament of Wood, Stone and Iron, commonly called The Tourney, will require great skill, teamwork and creativity to be victorious.
   This annual tournament brings competitors and spectators from across the realm. Recently however, the tests of skill, the performances, and those who judge them have become jaded. The Tourney now includes many practitioners of the arcane arts, monstrous beasts, and humanoids from distant lands. While this has given The Tourney an added flair of mysticism and spectacle, it has also brought with it corruption, crime and violence that is at odds with its original intent.
   Cheating, espionage, bribery, distractions, and slander are hazards the officials and judges try to mitigate, but many of them are themselves targets of the same tomfoolery. While circumventing the rules is a disqualifying act, it must be proven to the officials before anything can be done.
   All threats and acts of violence will immediately disqualify the offender. More severe punishments include shunning, exile, imprisonment or even death if the participant is exceedingly brutal or sadistic."


The purpose of these books is to help DMs put together an interesting encounter in a short time. Each Adventure Keys release does this by starting with a unique location that can be inserted seamlessly into an existing world with little or no modification. They are modular, with many options and variants available so that the DM can customize it to suit their needs.

There are six sections that include the Location, Hooks & Goals, Characters, Trappings, Threats, and Changes. All but the first have multiple options each, and since the DM isn’t limited to using only one option, the variations available are quite numerous. Sections can be used or ignored at the DM’s discretion, or even modified based on the situation or to scale its Challenge Rating.

The options are deliberately non-specific for ease of use. The DM can include them as they are, combine them, or use them for inspiration to create an entirely new options.

Format

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.
