The battle for Hilt Island!

After forty years of peace, the Edrassan Kingdom has invaded the Temple Empire. Hilt Island is the strategic key to the war, and the Edrassans have beseiged both the capital Chronlan and the island’s Ember diamond mines. The Templites must buy time for reinforcements to arrive.  

The Temple Empire recruits the party to raid and disrupt the Edrassan supply lines. Disguised as the Black Hand, they must attack the Edrassan rear areas, forcing the enemy to divert troops from the front lines to hunt them down. If ordinary Edrassan soldiers fail to catch or kill them, the party will find themselves facing Captain Thurn, the Butcher of Wolflow, or even the infamous Agent Stretch of the Edrassan secret police.  

Between raids and deadly encounters, the party will have many exciting adventures, including uncovering how the Edrassans knew so much about  Hilt Island’s defences. Could they have received help from inside the Templite government?  

Once sufficient damage has been caused, the party will receive new orders to rescue the alchemist Efflam Striker, who is vital to the war effort. They must escort him to Chronlan, which is still under siege by the Edrassans, and the party will have to find a way through the siege lines in order to smuggle Striker into the city.  

By completing many vital quests, the party will help turn the tide of the war. A chance to end the conflict comes when the party identifies the Templite government traitor. They must lead a force to the traitor’s mountain retreat, break-in and defeat this powerful mage to save Hilt Island from the Edrassan invaders. 

A Sandbox Campaign

The party may travel anywhere on the island, visiting locations in any order they wish. Unlike many sandbox adventures, Black Hand Rising includes detailed guidance for the Game Master to make the adventure easy to run and enjoyable for everyone. Includes comprehensive cross referencing.


- JPG maps for your favourite virtual tabletop software.

- PDF battlemats.

- Three short stories you can share with your players to increase immersion. One story as background before the campaign begins and two for sharing after they meet key NPCs.

Okay... color me crazy, but it says it's 60% off of $9.95 for $3.95 but the $3.95 is lined out and the $9.95 is highlighted in red as if it is the sale price.
Am I missing something?

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.
