The Vault Opens

Watermarked PDF

Even as monuments of other ages crumble to ruin and people of antiquity fade from history, their achievements and failures disappearing from memory, the relics of the past somehow survive. A sword stands embedded in the stone into which it was thrust; a golden ring lies forgotten in some dank cavern; while a cloak, as new as the day it was made, swaddles the moldering remains of an infamous villain. The great magic residing inside these treasures preserves them against time and violence, ensuring they can survive throughout the ages to be found, used, and lost again. Relics are the most powerful items in existence, artifacts of lasting power that can effect tremendous change.<o:p></o:p>

     The Vault Opens kicks off a new line of supplements for Shadow of the Demon Lord that describe a variety of new relics for player characters to find, interact with, and perhaps seek to destroy. This supplement reveals details on four new relics: the Apotheosis Engine, the Sky Maiden’s Mantle,the Journal of Doctor Festring, and the legendary Staff of Ys. Whether the characters use them or destroy them, their inclusion in your campaign could change the world!<o:p></o:p>

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.
