“When our eyes adapted to the inky darkness, we saw what lay hidden in the shadows. This realm was a sick reflection of ours, empty and truly terrifying. A world like our own, but formed of shadow, pale and devoid of soul. There were shadow-creatures that took the form of men. Undead huddled in the corners of the darkness, waiting for those who would enter or open the gates to the shadow realm. Rivers of pure shadow flowed across the soulless landscape. We have been there and back again and the travels have left their marks. Do not fear my pallor, for to us it is a badge of honor, it reminds of where we have been and what we have lost. We will be your guides and protectors.”

–Umbral Elf Ranger

The Northmen speak of dusky elves who are born of the shadows, tireless hunters of the Dark Ones. They sweep out of the forests and mercilessly eradicate the Dark Ones wherever they are found. Despite their hatred for the evil shadowfolk, they seem to be dispassionate towards the mortal men and women of the north. They call themselves umbral elves, but many call them wraithe elves, and their true history is tangled in antiquity.

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.
