Revisiting Classics: More about Festival of the Damned

Protect the sleepy village of Vezay from the forces of hell in this revised release of two classic adventures. Now you can play through these seminal Ars Magica adventures using fourth edition rules.

The Ghoul of St. Lazare by John Nephew introduces us to Vezay, where ancient lies, heresy, and dark rituals abound. Festival of the Damned by Jonathan Tweet brings the troupe back to Vezay over Easter week to investigate accusations of witchcraft. But that’s not half of the problem…

Ghoul originally appeared in Tales of the Dark Ages, the very first Atlas Games release, in 1990. Festival was first published in 1991.

Festival of the Damned is out of print. It requires Ars Magica fourth edition to play.

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.
