Castles & Crusades Heart of Glass

Watermarked PDF

The Paladin sighed, looking to the ground. “I would not bring this upon
you...  If I could, I would suffer your damnation!” He shook his
head, “But . . . there is nothing else that we may do.” Malcom of Helliwell turned away. “You’re a bastard.  But of course you know this.”   He looked to his hands.  Wrinkles and bones,
they no longer bore the strength to wield a blade or heft a shield.  How
had this come to pass, he mused, his youth stolen in so few years.  In
days he aged months, in month’s years. 


There was no doubt some eldritch magic involved, somehow involved with the wars.  He stood upon the brink of death, and he knew it. And now they needed him. They needed his life prolonged for some spell or some such.  Somehow he was the key. “How long do I have, mage?” The old wizard shook his head.  His voice was cool and calm, “A day, two at the most.  You either take Sagramore’s way or we bury you and the power you carry.” The Sea Towns sprawl along the coastal region until their streets and alleys intermingle and none could say where one leaves off and the other begin. The streets are narrow, the markets kept small if plentiful, and alleys twist and wound their ways between hosts of rickety buildings. As for the buildings, they range from one to three stories high, but some were scrap the sky with six


Alleys twist upon the rooftops as the buildings crush together in the
tight confines of the coastal plain.  The whole landscape is a dark twisted
forest of tunneled streets, alleys, homes, arches, shops and markets. This is
the Heart of Glass. The “Heart of Glass” is a dark adventure that pits the party against
thieves, assassins and other denizens of the night. It takes place in the back
alleys and abandoned neighborhoods of the Sea Towns of Ihlsa.  There,
amidst the twisted, jumbled streets of the Three Cities, one can buy anything,
or anybody, for a price.  The party must penetrate this reclusive world,
and unravel its mysteries in order to upset the plans of Malcom of Helliwell
and retrieve the magical artifact which he so ardently desires.


The adventure takes place in the Sea Towns of Ihlsa:  Ra-veen, Nochiand Capayrnha. Portions of each town are detailed, including economy, government, persons of note, guilds, and places of interest. The adventure, the events surrounding the magical Heart of Glass, provides a backdrop to the towns, and serves to introduce both the CK and Players to what should develop
into a fun and robust setting that offers many nights of enjoyment and play. “Heart of Glass” is an adventure setting for fantasy role play. The module is designed for a group of 3-6 characters of levels 3-5.

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.
