Castles & Crusades U3 Fingers of the Forsaken Hand

Watermarked PDF

The Legend of the Forsaken

In an age long past, a philosophy of war was birthed amid conflict, honed in battle, and steeped in magic by a monastic sect, of a name lost to time. From generals of renowned fighting prowess, to the most wizened magi, and even those who were shapers of nature itself, all members of the sect put their accumulated knowledge toward one goal – an eternal peace.

After years of failure and disappointment, the leaders of the sect began to experience mysterious dreams. The dreams revealed a mountain in a remote area, curved like a vicious blade, far from known civilization. The dreams hinted at primeval struggle at the base of the mountain. All of the cult members interpreted this to be the “birthplace” of war, and assumed that a revelation was at hand, perhaps as a gift from the gods after decades of struggle and sacrifice.

The crusaders for peace sought and entered the mountain, making their home within. Whether they found their answer is uncertain, for no soul emerged to tell the tale, and the sect faded into oblivion’s embrace.

At the end of a long range of rounded, weathered mountains, and surrounded by treacherous terrain, the mountain remains tall and defiant. It rears its curved peak above the surrounding landscape, perpetually swept by swirling winds and snow.

Rumors have ever lingered around the mountain now known as the Sickle. The legends say that the forsaken sect still dwells in darkness, within the rock. It is said that ancient treasures are ripe for the picking, if one is brave and clever enough to find the entrance and venture within.

The Fingers of the Forsaken Hand is a Castles & Crusades adventure designed for six to eight characters of 8th-10th level.

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.
