Clockwork City Prison

Large rusty cogs turn above the roiling magma adjusting but the smallest thing within the massive city. Iron plating makes up the form of this structure with pipes releasing pent up steam which turns the gears. Platforms protrude from its core each holding a dangerous prisoner.

Adventure Seed

An ancient scroll speaks of a powerful weapon from the fabled Clockwork City, waiting deep within the mountains. It has lain abandoned for centuries after a catastrophe destroyed its dwarven creators.

Despite the lack of life within this place, the clocks and cogs of the city have continued to churn faithfully; hisses and ticks echoing throughout the cavernous ruins, bolstered by clouds of steam. Small mechanical creatures scuttle about, performing repairs on the city, as well as each other.

While adventurers have made it into some areas of the city, you find many of their bones lying covered in dust. When you finally enter the room deep within the city that has been left undisturbed since the calamity—the room containing the weapon—you trip it’s defence system. Suddenly hundreds of the little mechanical creatures swarm the floors, banding together in its centre to create a gigantic clockwork dragon.

Once defeated, you trigger the seal suspending the weapon in a cage above the magma. As the chamber is lifted up, the weapon is revealed to be a young girl.

What’s happening? The ones who built this city succeeded at creating synthetic life. However, they did not know its cost. The girl is a homunculus, made in an experiment that unknowingly harvested the lives of the entire civilisation.

By the time they realised the consequences of their spell, it was too late to stop. Seeking to create immortal life, they instead transferred all of their lifetimes into their creation, who has been held in stasis ever since.

She does not need food, or water. Wounds that would kill her heal as they use up one of the hundreds of lives she has left. Her creators were magical beings and when they created her, they transferred their power into her as well. She holds all their magical potential, broiling within her—but she doesn’t know how to control it. Not yet.

Highly impressionable and taken to flights of imagination, she can be moulded into something good or evil.

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.
