Good Books: 12 Unusual Books, Magical and Otherwise

Suggested Price $0.59

A selection of 12 books from the lost  collection of famed planar explorer Dumfrey Verynon Bohay-Nowell, including The Codex of Inevitable Betrayals, a guidebook for treachery and double-crossing, Old Uncle Bentwhisker, a book of childrens' prose linked to several mysterious disappearances, and The Dialectic Subtleties, an elvish guide to winning arguments. Some of these books are steeped in magic, while others are simply so well written they provide the reader with a short-term benefit.

If you're running Waterdeep:Dragon Heist, any of these books could be a fun addition to Book Wyrm's Treasure (T6 in Trollskull Alley). Of course, any one of these could be added into your Candlekeep Mysteries adventures as well.

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.
