Is there a Hardback version for UK? I can only see Hardback in the US and Shipping is more than the book!

This version is a PDF; I don't think DriveThruRPG sells it as a hardback.

For hardcover shipping in the UK: would recommend buying from a local shop in the UK, or via UK mail order from Orc's Nest etc.

Does this PDF include Dean Spencer's map of the Old Margreve?

Sure, if you mean the digital map, it is in this PDF and also free here:

If you mean the printed poster map, it is in the hardcover or available separately here:

Is this a stand alone product, or would I need to buy other Kobold books (e.g. Tome of Beasts or Midgard Heros) to use it?

Most of the monster and NPC stats are right in the book. However, this is a large set of adventures, so there are also random encounter tables and the like. For those, you'll need a copy of the Monster Manual (or access to those monsters online) and Tome of Beasts (Open Gaming content, so those stats are available for free at the Open SRD).

While your players could certainly use Midgard Heroes for their PCs, nothing about these adventures requires that book.

Hope that helps!

Wow there was original pfrpg version all along. I wasn't looking harder, I guess. Thank you.

This is a really great supplement - I picked it at the kobold store and highly recommend it. If you look at the Margreve on the Midgard map, it's decent sized; however, this book really makes the forest feel massive and mysterious and horrifying.

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.
