The Goblin Communes - Adventure for Zweihander RPG


In a distant, sleepy, and neglected corner of the Empire, a one-time burgeoning farming town has shrunk with time into a quiet Thorpe, leaving many ancient fields to be reclaimed by nature and farmsteads and villages to crumble with the ages. 

This neglect has led to a number of problems, from bandit-infested roads, beasts stalking the forests, and, most recently, something of a goblin problem.  Goblin communities, Communes as they call themselves, are inhabited by ambitious and runaway goblins who have all fled the harshness of nomadic banditry, orcish war machinations, attercrap spider thralldom, or various other sorts of unpleasant and unwilling labor on behalf of more powerful and often rather evil forces.

The goblins have done their best to do no harm and simply get by, but living freely as squatters and without established farms or industry or the skills to quickly establish them has proven difficult, and desperate times have led to desperate acts.  While originally neither band had official leadership, making decisions via something….close to a crude democracy, strongarm leaders able to provide have emerged.  At first it was mere thievery and holding up vagrants, but the strongarm leaders grew bolder and went too far, attempting a caravan robbery that got out of hand and left folks on both sides dead.  Then, in panicked effort to ward off retaliation, they went about collecting hostages- though no one remembered to leave a note about the intention behind kidnapping people....

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.
