Underground Map Packs: The Mountain Cottage

Watermarked PDF

VTT Ready Battlemaps, Area Dangers, Encounter Seeds, and Trinkets For 5th Edition

There are many stories about the cottage near the mountain pass.
Some say that an old hag dwells within, skulking about the grounds and glamouring herself and her hovel so that she can lure in passersby foolish enough to accept her poisonous offer of hospitality and then leave what she doesn’t use for her potions buried in her garden on the edge of the property.
The village near the eastern end of the pass would whisper that it was once the home of a local hunter who, in his blind ambition and hubris, marked a sacred beast as his quarry. After felling the ancient guardian, he was cursed by the land and driven to make his home on the outskirts of humanity, his new feral nature unfit for the civilization he had enjoyed.
Anyone drinking in the ale halls in the town at the western end of the pass would scoff at the superstition of their neighbors and maintain that it was the home of a competent, if somewhat eccentric, herbalist who could cure anything that ailed a body and offer some of the finest tobacco on the mountainside. Never mind that occasionally someone would return from their treatments just a little…different.
Still, others say that no one has ever called that strange little cottage home. That no matter what time you pass by the well-kept little plot you’ll smell fine food on the air and see smoke puffing from the chimney but no one has ever seen a living soul through the brightly lit windows or puttering around the lush little berry patch.
Only the mountain could really attest to which, if any, of these tales are true. But like all mountains, it’s notoriously good at keeping its secrets.

And silencing those that wish to reveal them.

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.
