A subtle scent of death


A Forgotten Realms adventure for a party of four characters of level 1.

The town of Nightfell occupies a strategic position within the Forgotten Realms.  The eponymous flower is a rare and precious reagent that can only be found in its vicinity.  Political intrigue for control over the resource has always raged.  One party, however, seems to be now embracing the forces of darkness to assert definitive dominance over the region at what could be a fatal cost for the population.

High on intrigue and mystery, with several combat situations, a brief wilderness adventure and an epic final battle, A subtle scent of death is intended to provide a rich setting for self-created adventures as well as follow-on publications within a broader set of Nightfell Chronicles.

When do you plan on releasing the second adventure in this series?

It's a good question.

I'm waiting to see what kind of traction I get on this one. I have plenty of half-tested concepts for the next ones.

However, here is the reality:
(i) It's a lot of work... When you think you are close to done (most of it written), you are about half of the way there to get something that is internally consistent, with no typos, proper dungeon maps, etc.
(ii) I'm amazed at the sheer volume of work published on DMS. Since I release this one, there has been dozens of new publications, I'm at the back end of the queue and it doesn't really show up anymore on searches unless you tweak the parameters, so it's buried.
(iii) There are very few ways that I can think of to "advertise" my work in spite of the fact it's free.

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.
