Island Book I

Watermarked PDF

Idyllic Isles!

A 64-page booklet which includes 48 pages of small island groups and atolls for adventuring: passing ships, damaged by storms, may drop anchor here for repairs or be breached on the rocks, marooning their crewman; or it may be the stronghold of pirates, the sanctuary of a secret religion, or a coven of witches. Included are three pages of charts for generating island terrain, natives and encounters, mysterious finds, and even volcanic eruptions. Ideal for insertion into a campaign expanding into maritime traffic and trade. The islands are mapped on hex grids in light gray for additions and changes by the Judge. A Judges Guild Campaign Hexagon Sub-System, approved for use with D&D.

This is a fantastic, genre-free, system-free product: just maps of islands which can be used for any game system, allowing the GM to get on with the important stuff, like fleshing out the adventure, without having to draw a map of the island! T [...]

This is an excellent resource for a number of different settings and for virtually every genre. I've incorporated these maps into my fantasy, sci-fi, and modern military campaigns. For the price, you just can't go wrong if you can find a use for hex-ma [...]

This is just a book filled with small island areas mapped on the JG hex grid. It has really limited use, but what do you want for 2.25? [...]

Scanned from the early Judges Guild book. I have no complaints and for the price it was nice to be able to pick this up and be able to print as I need it. The generation charts are Old School. Heck, the whole thing is Old School and that's what makes [...]

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.
