Watermarked PDF

A dark fantasy RPG of witches vs machines

The peaceful witches of Novala lived in harmony with nature before the Apothecary arrived. Its machines tore up the soil and sickened the land. The Novallans saw no choice but to fight back to save their world. Now, it’s nature versus machines and conservation versus consumption. The witches continue to fight for their way of life and cleanse the blight brought by the Apothecary, but they are running out of time. 

Form a coven of Novallan witches known as the Ironbound and take the fight directly to the Apothecary at great physical, emotional and spiritual risk. Use your witchy knowledge of herbs, gems, and energy to heal your world and bring back peace to Novala. 

Enter the world of Novala, a tranquil paradise home placed under siege by the greed of the Apothecary.

This system neutral preview reveals what makes this fantasy world of pagan warriors vs machine unique and why the Ironbound must rise to save their people and their land.

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.
