The Beast of Limfjord


Gather close and hear the saga of the great warrior, Hrothgar, and his journey home. Many were his triumphs in the years that he explored the north, west and east. Stories of his battle with the Serpent of Iceland, the defeat of the Tyrant of Wales and his tangle with the Witches of Rus were spread from fireside to fireside, wherever men shared tales. But as the weariness of ages grew upon Hrothgar he (as all men do) longed to return home and claim the prizes of old age - a welcoming hearth and a warm woman. So it was that Hrothgar and his crew of bondsmen set out for home. But the Gods often have plans for the bold of heart and able of body, and the north winds were unleashed upon Hrothgar and his crew, smashing their longship upon the shores of far northern Jutland, a desolate place of rugged men and great peril. It was here that the villagers of Limfjord, recognizing the warrior in their midst, petitioned Hrothgar to save them from the Beast that had descended upon them.
This is the tale of Hrothgar and the Beast of Limfjord...

There is nothing really wrong with the product, but I found the description misleading. I was under the impression I was buying a rich adventure. Instead I got 17 pages of rules, 2 pages of adventure and 3 pages of appendix with extra monster write-ups [...]

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.
