A Scarred Lands Adventure for 4-6 players of APL 11-16

The necromancer Maghiel is weary of adventurers interfering with her plans to amass power, and she has devised a cunning trap to rid herself of them once and for all. Maghiel sends her trusted halfling assistant Haplo to infiltrate the party, and to convince them he escaped from Maghiel with spell scrolls that have the power to nullify her magic. The spell scrolls contain an ancient true ritual called The Censure of Mesos, which could indeed leave her vulnerable if the party successfully performs the ritual. However, in order to perform the ritual, the party will have to construct an effigy of Maghiel that incorporates a nonmagical personal item of hers such as hair, fingernails, or blood. Then, they will have to assemble the required number of competent spellcasters and proxies in an uncharted place of power called the Twisted Path, high in the Titanshome Mountains.

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.
