Return of the King

Suggested Price $3.00

This is an adventure for Cepheus Engine.

While in star port the travelers are approached by a scruffy looking young man with a proposition. He needs passage to Lage. Lage is a world in the Sonora sector which has recently been conquered by forces of the Jorum family after a protracted siege and orbital nuclear bombardment. Most of the world is now covered in radioactive ruins. A red travel advisory has recently been issued due to the dangerous hot zones on the planet surface.

The Patron, Wei Columbo, states that he is in search of a long lost family heirloom and merely wants an opportunity to go find it before it is lost forever to the Jorum family. He offers CR 200,000 for passage to Lage and for the travelers to wait three days to take him off world again. He may also need a little help retrieving the heirloom from the ruins there. The deal seems cut and dried.......

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.
