Desert Wind - a Ghibli Inspired Adventure

Selected Option:
Watermarked PDF
Softcover, Standard Color Book
Watermarked PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book


Welcome to Desert Wind, the third issue of the extra-planar zine, Songbirds.

Desert Wind comes with:

  • A fully fleshed out village with NPCs, shops, and some cool stuff to buy
  • A D300 list of plot hooks inspired by Studio Ghibli films
  • A 50+ room dungeon, set in a flying castle, with monsters and treasure inspired by Ghibli

This is my love song to Studio Ghibli, one of the greatest inspirations of mine. 

I hope you find something in here you can use.

Good luck, don't die.

The name of the Carpenter's Husband doesn't match the table in the front of the book, looks like it's a duplicate and typo.

Unclear what the "Scars" part of the electrician's page is about. It looks more like Tattoo descriptions than scars, but still no explanation

The "Map" page is confusing, as there's nothing really visible on it, just looks like a landscape drawing. Do you have anything else regarding the town layout?

As others mentioned, the font is pretty hard to read. Also the pictures don't seem to have anything to do with the content of the page they are on.

50% of the full-size preview is blank pages.
66% of the remaining pages are the title and dedication pages.
1/6th of the full-size preview is the Table of Contents - most of which can be inferred by the description of the product, itself.

Would you be able to upload a preview that better showcases some of the content of this book? I'm interested in purchasing it (basically off of the premise of it being inspired by Studio Ghibli), but not interested in wasting $6 if it's not my cup of tea.

Okay, it should be fixed now. It takes a hot minute for the site to catch up to the changes.

Small preview is now much bigger.

Large preview should be about 10 pages.

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.
