The Knight of the Shadows: A Ravenloft Background


A background for a knight of vengeance, who joins with others to protect the innocent and to seek an end to the reign of Ravenloft's dark powers. Figures like this can inspire hope in the hopeless people of the Mists, or may simply be martyrs for a meaningless cause, throwing their lives away against an impossible foe.

From the doc:

The Dark Lords of Ravenloft rule all in this grim land, but there are those who oppose them. You are one such person. Driven by vengeance, and with courage verging on the foolhardy, you have joined an order of crusaders known as the Circle (also known as the Knights of the Shadows), and you stand with them in protecting the innocent and weak from the predations of Ravenloft’s sinister overlords. You also seek the lore and tools necessary to finally bring their reign to an end, for good. You don’t hide your identity, but flaunt it, and in doing so, you act as a living example to the people of the Mists – if you can spit in the face of the Dark Lords and live, perhaps anyone can. Perhaps the power of the Dark Lords is overstated.

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.
