An adventure for RuneQuest Roleplaying in Glorantha.

The Lunar College of Magicians wants to get hold of this year’s batch of Hydra’s eggs. Yes, that’s Hydra! Not some lesser hydra, but one of Glorantha’s few greater hydras: the only one known to exist in Genertela. The hydra of legend, said to be as large as a city, which lives atop Hydra’s Hill in the Hydra Mountains. The burden of expectation on the Magicians is currently high and delivering domesticated lesser hydra to fight alongside the troops in the field would satisfy Moonson of their continued utility. To that end the College has had assembled a disparate crew of expendables. Recent defeats in Sartar have a silver lining. Disgraced warriors who have fallen from favour may now be assigned to dangerous but potentially rewarding missions. Enter the adventurers!

So happy to see this book finally out there. It inspired me to restart my love of Tarsh.

cheers Simon. Tarsh really deserves more attention as a setting. It has such a rich history. In any case the four Lunar Provinces connect Sartar and Grazelands with both Balazar and Dorastor so it sort of makes sense to have this as part of the stage upon which adventures take place.

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.
