The Smoky Mirror


Half a world away from Faerûn, distant Maztica is a place of alien cultures, bloodthirsty warriors and strange feathered magic. Its abundant riches, however, are the ultimate prize of explorers; hundreds, if not thousands, have braved the Trackless Sea to plunder its wealth, and only a few lucky souls return home to relish the treasures they have taken from the True World.

The clash of cultures, though, does not go only westward. What was taken from Maztica can still exert a powerful influence on those who live on the Sword Coast, in ways that its hapless inhabitants could not possibly comprehend.

Presented in detail in this manuscript is The Smoky Mirror, a powerful artifact with a full history and a single-minded goal--but only those who possess it can truly know what its real motives are.

Very cool little artifact that could easily lead to a neat little adventure with some work. Maztica is alive and well!

Rules Edition(s)
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.
