Gruß vom Krampus, adventurers and Game Masters! 

I am pleased to release an original and all new holiday adventure for Yuletide 2019, featuring the ancient folkloric demon known as Krampus and, making his first appearance in my holiday adventures, Jólfaðr the Yule Father

SYNOPSIS: In this adventure your players will meet and help the inhabitants of the small seaside community of Taigh-Solais an Iar (which translates to South Lighthouse in Common) on a dark and snowy Midwinter’s Eve. The village is known far and wide for its eponymous lighthouse and its maritime treasures. It is normally a tranquil and peaceful place, but trouble has come to this once staid the form of the demon Krampus! For unbeknownst to the human villagers, Krampus and a group of evil demi-humans have invaded their territory, and they are holed up in the ancient gnomish Thunderwhistle Mines in the mountains above the village. From there Krampus' shadow gnome and dark elf minions have struck at the village on Midwinter’s Eve, stealing all their children from out of their beds, cribs and basinets! 

Stumbling upon this tragedy by happenstance, your players will be tasked with going after the invaders, defeating Krampus and his allies, and return the children safe and sound.

Can you players defeat these Chaotic baddies and save the holidays!

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.
