Voyage to Plague Island

Watermarked PDF


While sojourning in a small village somewhere on the Parched Coast in a tavern called The Cracked Crab you must have been slipped sleeping powders by someone – probably the serving girl or barkeep.  You awoke to find yourself on board an oared galley, stripped of all possessions save what clothing you wear, in chains and forced to row.  Your mind numb and unable to recall much, you rowed for what seemed like days, occasionally feeling the sting of a whip on your back which momentarily brought you back to reality, but only for a short time as more drugs were fed to you, undoubtedly in the few meager swallows of water they allowed the rowers.  Talk among the other slaves was that the ship was bound for Plague Island.  Your cruel human and half orc captors, when not whipping you and your oar mates told you how wealthy you would make them once they sold you, and of how well you would die in the arena at the Jade Palace.

Through a haze of drugs and pain, you were able to recall bits of legend of such a place.  On the coast and in distant lands, the island is spoken of in hushed tones in the back rooms of bars, in thieves’ and wizards’ guilds and among restless and bloodthirsty delvers and adventurers.  It is said that a group of very wealthy and powerful people use the island as a sort of playground, where gladiatorial combats are held, where powerful mages meet to trade dark secrets and where the hunting of human prey is carried out in the jungle.

Author's Note - I wrote this in 2010.  Now available as an Ebook.  It is a module for a party of characters level 4-7.

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.
