Dungeon Crawl Classics (French) #16 : La Promise du manoir ombreux


Il y a des siècles de cela, dame Ilse devint héritière de la maison Liis en offrant à l’archidiable Mammon ce qu’il désirait le plus : son âme immortelle… et des fiançailles diaboliques. Pourtant, ce triomphe ne lui apportait aucune satisfaction, car chaque année, le soir anniversaire de son funeste pacte, des visions de Mammon et de son abjecte promesse revenaient la hanter. Pour lui échapper, elle se fit enterrer vivante, emmaillotée dans les symboles sacrés d’une douzaine de religions. Ce stratagème désespéré maintint Mammon à l’écart pendant quelques siècles…mais un démon a les moyens de se montrer particulièrement patient.

La dernière protection magique a fini par céder. Le diable vient réclamer son dû. Ce soir, un orage s’abat sur l’antique manoir, et les esprits de jadis émergent du bourbier où il se dresse. La cloche du beffroi sonne une fois encore, annonçant d’infernales festivités. Quand les aventuriers viennent explorer le manoir ombreux, Mammon vient chercher sa ravissante promise.

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.
