The Hand of the Law

Selected Option:

These three short, convention-length adventures for 1st-4th level characters are set in the Pax Lexque campaign world, which is detailed in the Pax Lexque Campaign Guide, available separately.

Each of the adventures place the PCs as members of Manus Legis. This is the Roman Empire’s special-forces cohort which is tasked with addressing the various dangers leftover from the Wars of Darkness, the magic wars that fragmented the Roman Empire 400 years ago.

Module 1: On His Majesty's Secret Service
You are new recruits in the imperial special forces group, Manus Legis, (Hand of the Law). Your first assignment should be easy, just track down some lost sheep. What could go wrong? (Level 1)

Module 2: All in the Family
Having proven yourself on several assignments, you are being trusted with a sensitive mission - find a thief of magical supplies before they can be used for necromantic purposes. (Level 3)

Module 3: The Missing Men of Grendisch Pass
This new mission sounds more daunting. A whole merchant caravan has disappeared, and apparitions were seen in the area. Can you resolve the cause and put these  spirits to rest? (Level 4)

This volume also includes a new class, the Alchemist.

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.
