Oddities, Artifacts, and Esoterica

Watermarked PDF

You know you have it somewhere. You root around in your backpack, pushing aside a crusty loaf of bread, a tin of ham older than you are, a few nails, the whetstone you always mean to use, and, by damn, that bottle of oil you picked up at Crossings last fall. You remember putting the cursed thing in your bag and you’ve been hauling it around for what seems like your whole life, yet when you need it, you can’t find it. But then, your hand brushes the stiff spines of that bizarre bronze feather and you know you found it. As you pull out the oddity, you remember your grandmother giving it to you and saying that one day, you’ll have need of it. Well, that day seems to have come. You shout in triumph as you pull the feather free, knowing that this interesting thing you have carried for so long will open the door that has so far resisted every means of entry you and your companions have tried. Too bad you’re the last one left alive!

     All characters begin the game with at least one interesting thing and might pick up more along the way. Interesting things can take the form of mysterious objects, but they can also be experiences, reputation, dependents, pets, and more. This entry into the Poisoned Pages series greatly expands on the weirdness, inexplicability, and excitement that interesting things can generate.

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.
