The Forbidden Bloom

Watermarked PDF

Within the Biasra Valley there lies an exquisite bloom of extreme rarity, a flower that is said to possess miraculous healing properties. Far away, a young boy lies afflicted with a terrible disease, soon to die, and a desperate grandmother grasps for any possible hope for a cure, even if it lies deep within a sacred valley where trespassers are killed on sight.

But all is not well in the lush Biasra Valley. A sickness creeps from the river, poisoning all that it touches, slowly spreading rot through the sacred garden of Ba-Dur. In fear and anger, the Ba-Durans watch their most precious possession begin to wither and die. They know not what causes it, but they know from where this contagion originates. From the river comes the plague, and from the north comes the river. Their longtime enemy to the north, the land of Bhuket, is poisoning the lifeblood of their country.

Sent on a dangerous mercy-mission, the adventurers find themselves fighting to save the life of more than just one boy, but the lives of an entire nation.

The Forbidden Bloom is a Secret of Zir'An adventure for 4-6 Heroic characters.

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.
