Adventurer Essentials: Rope

ZIP File

Adventuring can be dangerous. That's why every treasure-hunter needs the proper equipment. With the introduction of our "Adventurer Essentials" line we will examine the items that every adventurer needs to ensure he makes it back alive for the next adventure. Time-tested, and proven by countless dungeon crawls and wilderness expeditions, these are the essentials you'll need to survive the dangers ahead.

The next piece of essential gear covered in the "Adventurer Essentials" line is Rope. Adventurer Essentials: Rope is divided into three parts.

Part One deals with gear; and presents different types of rope and materials used in its manufacturing, from standard Hempen rope, to ropes made from other materials such as monstrous Spider Silk, and even Mithrial Laced cords! Part one also discuss the use of the grappling hook, block and tackle, and introduced one new weapon: the lariat. (Often incorrectly called a "lasso"!)

Part Two focuses on the Use Rope skill, with respect to the tying of knots. Various in-game knots are presented along with their uses including the Grief Knot and the Thief's Knot; two knots that are NOT what they appear to be!

And Part Three describes a handful of new magic items and spells.

The Adventurer Essentials series is a great idea, but one that should be compiled into a larger, more comprehensive product. While the cost is low, it adds up when you purchase them separately, or even as a bundle. <br><br> <b>LIKED [...]

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.
