Adventurer Essentials: Iron Rations


Adventuring can be dangerous. That's why every treasure-hunter needs the proper equipment. With the introduction of our "Adventurer Essentials" line we will examine the items that every adventurer needs to ensure he makes it back alive for the next adventure. Time-tested, and proven by countless dungeon crawls and wilderness expeditions, these are the essentials you'll need to survive the dangers ahead.<o:p></o:p>

Iron Rations. <o:p></o:p>

Expeditions underground can be long and arduous. Many of the wild areas of the world can barely support the wildlife that struggles there, let alone a group of adventurers. So often a party must provision themselves for the long interval between visits to civilization staunchly remaining afloat amidst the chaos of the world.<o:p></o:p>

These rations must last for a long time, be light-weight and nutritious. (Notice the adjective "tasty" was not part of the requirement.) From simple dried fruits and meats, to hardtack, Dwarven Rock Cakes, much sought-after Elvish cakes and Gnomish Energy Pellets; all of these items will keep an adventurer on his feet and ready to face the trials (and trails) ahead.<o:p></o:p>

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.
