Adventure Synopsis:

The town of Axonville has had a mysterious benefactor who lives just beyond the city's edge. Every year this benefactor invites the city to a huge lavish ball. Rumors have begun circulating about this figure in recent years, however, as they never seem to age despite their human lineage. For a while now, at odd times, families have gone missing from Axonville. The benefactor's mysteriousness has made some of the townsfolk connect them with the disappearances around town. It is up to the adventurers to discover the truth behind these disappearing families and if these rumours of the benefactor are true or not.

This is a very well written and designed adventure. Beyond just setting up the general parameters of the adventure itself, there is a full three pages of content at the open that fills in details about the town it is set in.

Each section is well laid out with available options and possibilities. Room has been taken to consider the different reactions that a party can take and provides a natural progression for each major approach they could take.

Magic items and NPC cards are great, and with a little creativity this could be situated into any campaign setting.

What a bargain for two bucks!

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.
