The Doorway in the Hill: Codex and Coda (audio product)


The Doorway in the Hill is an experiment in multimedia storytelling with three parts: a full length electronica album, a long-form music video, and this old-school tabletop rpg supplement!

Codex and Coda is a handbook to the Venomous Twilight, a fetid swamp teaming with strange plant life and home to forbidden treasures. It takes advantage of the For Gold & Glory OGL ruleset by Justen Brown, introducing the setting, new character options, monsters, spells, and magical items.

Included are two remixes - exclusive to DriveThruRPG! - of the title track from The Doorway in the Hill. Stream the full album anywhere you listen to music.

Enjoy The Doorway in the Hill: Codex and Coda on it's own, or together with the album and video for an interactive experience exploring themes of perception, consumption, loss, perseverance, and need.

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.
