The King is Dead

Watermarked PDF

The King of Drinax is dead.

His son Oleb must take the throne.

But Oleb is missing. The prince has not returned from his tour of the outer systems and he must be brought home to his throne and his kingdom. The quest is entrusted to Asaj, a knight of the Star Guard. His mission: ensure the hotblooded young prince returns to the dusty throne of a vanished empire.

The old Empire is gone. The kingdom is dying. And the king is dead.

I quite liked this one. I've been a playing in a very nice Pirates of Drinax campaign for a year now, and this story captures the essence of the setting quite well. It may be a little exaggerated (or my GM may be presenting a slightly less extreme version), but it's a good mood setter. There may be a slight spoiler about one of the antagonistic forces, but I don't think it's a big deal.

Hey, we never paid the man for the first run of Drinax-by-installment, and that was priceless. This story is flavorful, and not without its touches of humor and Drinaxian innuendo-especially if one has fully played through the campaign. It does run very light though-I'd have rather paid more and gotten more 'meat'-Mongoose Editors-take note!

Looks interesting but $3.50 for 46 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.
