At the Shrine of Othrys (A Campaign Report)


“At the Shrine of Othrys” is a fun and lively novella-length work of fantasy fiction that follows the activities of four stalwart adventurers, Myrmidon fighter Myrmex, Human rogue Teris, Cynocephalian sorcerer Lyco, and Olympian priestess Angelia as they travel to and explore an ancient temple complex. 

This publication is designed to look like a journal written and illustrated with sketches by one of the characters while in the field. It is organized into 14 chapters that start with the formation of the adventuring party and follows its members as they face cultists, elemental monsters, evil humanoids, and all form of natural and unnatural hazards. It is written in a way intended to be reminiscent of classic swords-and-sorcery fantasy and combines humor and grimness as it recounts how its characters deal with everything from the day-to-day routines of adventuring to life-and-death battles. 

“At the Shrine of Othrys (A Campaign Report)” includes text by bestselling author Michael O. Varhola, 30 custom images by fantasy artist Amanda Kahl, a regional map by geographer Octavius Knorr, and a complete dungeon map by cartographer Wilhelmina T. Thrasher.

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.
