Palace of the Walls that Scream


Within the grim corridors of the labyrinthine Palace of Diamonds in the capital city of Ferrara, the mad heir to the powerful house of Este, Niccolo III has been giving vent to his lust with countless women and girls of all ages in the province. His bottomless passion spent in the most extreme forms of depravity dragged the young man into the delirious spirals of sin with no return, damning his soul forever to the torment of hell. 

Here, in the capital of the Duchy, the mirror-plated halls reverberate with the moans and whispers of perdition so insane that they cannot be repeated in this text, destined to be preserved forever behind their mute reflections.Present day. When a delegation of the nobles loyal to Emperor Frederick arrives in the capital during the first days of spring, the Diamond Palace opens like an orchid after the long rigid Winter storms that followed the Night of Screams, hosting in unrestrained luxury artists from all the Este territories to welcome, as is customary, all the families loyal to the Emperor to define the strategies of the recent conflict against the Guelphs loyal to the Pope.

One after another, the palace welcomes artists, clergymen and nobles among the flowering trees, offering beauty and culinary delights of all kinds to those welcomed to court. But amid dances and music, incredible frescoes and intricate sculptures, uncertainty meanders between the lips of the guests. Who is going to stay loyal once the battes begin?  Who will confirm their loyalty ... To whom?

Then, last night, the corridors of the palace get suddenly tinged with blood. Men and women in shock emerge from its fanged mouth naked, their eyes averted as if lost in another dimension. Guards and mercenaries of the household enter the palace in search of the emissaries, legates and ambassadors, driving them out in a state of shock.

What happened? A group of adventurers is hired to find out the truth... But perhaps, sometimes it is better not to know.

An adventure for level 3-4th level characters for Dungeons & Dragons 5 Edition, set in the dark new world of Of Iron & Thorns.

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.
