Gambling with Death:

A Case of Untimely Death and Shady Dealings at the Casino 

In an attempt to save his life, the ruler of a casino empire who is up to his neck in debt captures a legendary hustler who he hopes could be his salvation. However, not only do her powers fail to stop his debtor, Death himself, from collecting his due, but Death also demands that the ruler sacrifices his fake savior as punishment… Now the casino magnate and his security team scramble to cover up the murder as the crew ventures into the dark secrets behind the glitz and glamour of the Royal Plaza Hotel! 

This standalone PDF describes an investigation case (adventure) for the City of Mist RPG. You can use it in the following ways:

  • As an introduction to a series, focusing on the Avatar of Hades, Greek god of death and the underworld and his malicious operation as the City’s greatest crimelord. 
  • As a prequel/sequel episode for Shark Tank (coming soon), a separate case exploring a different branch of Hades’ operation.

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.
