Tor: A Hand-Crafted Map


This Hand-Crafted Map supplement focuses on a single tor in a rural area. As long as the local people have been alive, this tor has been abandoned and forgotten. Farmers graze their animals on its slopes and the ancient stone tower atop it serves as a handy landmark for the region. Recently, some locals claimed to have seen lights coming from the abandoned tower at the summit. What mystery is hidden within the tor?

The maps within are all hand drawn and evoke a time of simplicity in role-playing games when the only things you needed to play were a character sheet, a pencil, some dice, and your imagination. The maps can easily be adapted to fantasy, modern, sci-fi, or any number of role-playing systems and settings. In a fantasy setting, the underground complex of the tor could hide a band of goblins who've been attacking travelers. Perhaps a new cabal, followers of a multi-tentacled god, have made the abandoned tor their new base of operations in a pulp or modern setting. In a science fiction game, the tor could be found on a strange alien world, the base of operations for a group of pirates or rebel sympathizers.

The base has been provided. Now you can fill in the details.

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.
