Arena of Glory

Pillars of stone lead up from the mountainside to form support pillars under a grand coliseum. Heavy stone pedestals mark the outskirts, with angelic statues standing upon them grasping chains or holding swords.

Many stone pillars hold up the mountainside over the crowded stands and platform that looks down upon the contestants. Fires rages along the insides of the combat grounds, smaller statues are engulfed in flames leaving burn marks across their surfaces while bloody marks have been left upon the stone from previous battles.

A large symbol has been carved into the stone floor, a mark of the hold that owns this place as well as a functional trap door that leads to the elevator used to get the combatants access to the arena.


Adventure Seed

After a heavy storm uncovers a pass to a lost city in the mountains, rumors start circulating the countryside, tales of treasure, gold and fame to be found within it’s halls drive you to seek out this ancient place.

You follow the directions given from some locals and after several days travel you arrive at your destination. You enter the halls dispatching small threats that have now made this place their home before finding yourself in a hexagonal room with a ceiling some hundreds of meters above you.

Upon entering however the door closes behind you and the floor starts to rise, transporting you higher into the gloom above. After moving up for some 20 seconds, light begins to peek through the darkness as if two sliding doors are opening above.

The platform continues rising until you’re bathed in sunlight and heat. You stand in an arena of stone, and chains, while flames beat down on you from all around. A crowd of hundreds of men and women cheer from the arenas stands. “May these be worthy!” a desperate man in fine garb calls down from the balcony above before you’re attacked by a group of men wearing minimal leather armor and covered in red tattoos from the other side of the arena.

What’s going on? This place was originally set up long ago as a prison for a great evil that dwelt below however it “vanished” after a massive landslide cut it off from the rest of civilization. The inhabitants had children and their children had children but overtime the prison began to break and the evil began to spread it’s tendrils. Fertility dropped and less children were born each generation and those who were born sometimes suffered horrible defects.

Today only one keeper is left, he stands on the balcony above you, a powerful old wizard focusing on the magic of illusion. After being alone for so long he found refuge only in the study of his peoples magical writings and so he has recreated them as illusions including all the peoples in the arena stands and the men you fight within the arena.

The wizard has also been the catalyst for all of this, after the storm opened the pass once again he sent out magical messages giving rumor to this city and treasures it may hold. He requires heroes with strength of mind to help defeat the evil that will soon be released within the failing prison before his frail body and mind fail him. Will you help him? Or has his grand deception turned you against him?

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.
