Shadow Profiteer

Watermarked PDF

In the sleepy village of Somnolence, evil begins to awaken. After an excavation of an ancient battle site, Manceologist Morgan Rechls has made the discovery of a lifetime - he has found the missing codex of the Aphotic.

Except things don't quite go as one might hope. Others have learned of his impressive discovery, and seek to benefit from what the codex can provide. When Rechls returns to his home in Somnolence, the codex thrums to life after centuries of dormancy. In doing so it calls forth something - evil. Somnolence is about to face an invasion from something that is beyond their very comprehension.

It just so happens that one group of adventurers is present in Somnolence when the mists of fate roll in. They are all that stands between the Aphotic and their ability to plunge the very nation into war.

  • "The Shadow Profiteer" a horror-mystery RPG adventure for 1st thru 4th level characters for the 5th edition of the world's greatest role-playing game.

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.
