The House of the Red Doors - Troika

The House of the Red Doors - Troika

Watermarked PDF

Generations ago the House of the Red Doors visited your village. Now, so many years hence, could it be passing this way again? As the story goes its mistress, Jassafae, still untouched by time’s ravages, is a powerful being of unknown origin. Through her fates are altered and wishes granted, but only to those brave enough to cross her threshold. You toil ceaselessly and suffer much and to what end? Unrequited dreams and the hope of an early grave? You resolve to enter and change your destiny.

The House of the Red Doors is a challenging duo adventure for one player and one games master. Three rounds of puzzles with seven different endings await the brave souls that enter the moveable mansion’s thresholds. A dreamland-like setting allows for ease of use in any genre. 

TROIKA! edition. For a review of the adventure, see the DCC RPG version here on DTRPG

So everything after "making for a soft, cushioned surface. In the center of the room lies a tiger’s skin," up to "disconcertingly realistic tableaux." is invisible but selectable. Is this just my Adobe Air?

I'm having real trouble printing this as a booklet because there are two pages per page. I can't reorder these using a tool like Preview or Booklet on my Mac. I was able to find a website that could split the pages and then move the back page to the end and that worked, but ideally this would be part of the download.
However the handout pages print out with black backgrounds.

Sorry Chris for the frustration. I guess when I looked at the book as spreads it just looked better to me on a screen. I'll get a traditional pdf download update here soon.

I didn't realize what the Troika edition was, I mean to get the DCC one. Is there a way to refund this and switch? PDF version is what I purchased.

Sorry Shawn for any confusion, I can't issue refunds and I'm not sure how DTRPG would get back a file in any case. Contact me via or twitter @lectrotext.

Probably the easier way to get a hold of this, and a really good price at that; I purchased a print copy and its apparently a limited run product. Would highly recommend this for someone looking to run a game with just one person, but this isn't an official review.

Thanks for the kind (not review) words, John.

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.
