A ship rocks back and forth, lost at sea in stormy waters. The party is weary and hopeless, until the day they find the sunny Flintlock Isles breaking through the menacing horizon.  As they sail closer, the party notices a volcanic rock sticking out the side of the island, carved in the shape of a massive leopard head.

As you’ll soon discover, this leopard head marks the entrance of Reaper’s Cove–the lost pirate city.

Original watercolor illustrations included

Legend has it, necromancer pirate Captain Houndstooth and his crew settled the island after finally locating it.  However, Houndstooth lost his favorite ship, The Black Cerberus, on the jagged rocks of the Fire Spine.  The mad pirate never forgave the Sea–and she never forgave him in return.

That is, until the mystical goblin surgeon Baron Bordeaux betrayed his evil captain–striking when his captain was most vulnerable.  He tricked Houndstooth by transforming a ferocious jungle leopard into a beautiful woman.  The old fool fell in love immediately.  On a doomed night, Houndstooth's new wife reverted to her leopard form while he slept.  She devoured him. 

Unburdened by the curse Houndstooth brought to Reaper's Cove, the island city flourished for years and grew into a suitable exotic trading post.

However, The Sea has suddenly returned to a state of rage.

Explore the city, play pirate games and solve the mystery behind the lingering storm that surrounds the island–before the island is wiped out.

Format

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.
