Shadows of the Forsaken Past


The Wall of the Gods has fallen; the Sealed Lands are Sealed no more. Elebac, Master-Smith of the Dwarves, has invited you to the Enclave of Solanos Mor to discuss rumors of an ancient tomb on the far side of the Wall of the Gods. Ancient words, only now understood, speak of a weapon beyond compare that was sealed within the tomb. What will you discover when you shine the light of the present upon the shadows of a forsaken past?

Note to Players of Living Arcanis: because of its length, this adventure is intended for Home Play only, and so it is not advised that conventions order this adventure. This adventure can easily 5 or more rounds to complete, so be prepared to schedule ample time for play. This adventure includes a special "Glory Tier" difficulty level, designed for those groups who are 15th level and higher who desire more of a challenge than usual (be warned, the Glory Tier includes no additional rewards beyond those of APL 15, and features combats that are considerably more difficult).

This adventure draws upon materials presented in the Player's Guide to Arcanis, Legacy of Damnation, Magic of Arcanis, and Forged in Magic: Revised and Expanded. While it is not required to have any of these books on hand to run this adventure, it is recommended. Relevant rules are included with the adventure.

Although this adventure is designed to be run as part of the LIVING ARCANIS shared-world campaign, it can be played and enjoyed by any group whose adventures take them to the World of Shattered Empires, and it can even be transplanted to other campaign worlds with some effort.

This adventure is designed for 4-16th level characters

This product includes:
A continent-spanning adventure that will take many sessions to complete
New spells

Okay, so the maps and other stuff are not included, but available from the website. And the website does not exist anymore. What does this mean for the usefulness of this downloads? Are the maps not important? Or can they be obtained from another source?

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.
