Layer of Eggs


The Layer of Eggs introduces an entirely new adversary for use with Shadow of the Demon Lord. Here, I reached out to the incredibly talented Kim Van Deun to illustrate a creature from her imagination and then I created a story around the creature including the mechanics needed to use the thing in the game. What Kim turned over was a bizarre eyeless humanoid spider thing with a ring of teeth in its face, a fleshy sac on its back, and a bizarre organ that excretes eggs presumably to hatch into something of equal, awful significance. Shown in a cave, the image proposed some terrible underground thing that would cause considerable trouble for spelunkers, miners, and other deep delvers. I found it quite easy to whip up an interesting story to the illustration and the product of our collaboration continues on the next page.

Aboslutley worth the price. Layer of Eggs is an hilariously gross Shadow of th Demonlord suppliment. The art if evocative and I really like the opening bit on what led to the creation of the monster. The backstory for the creature is fun and an [...]

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.
