The Story

Far up in the cold North, nestled between two giant mountains, lies a mining city called Dandery. It can be seen from miles away by the steam, light and noise it produces day and night. Dandery’s mines contain a huge quantity of coal, silver, indium, zinc and lead. Since the mines are worked on non-stop and the working conditions are horrible, the town is in constant need of new miners. People seeking their fortune from all over the region come to Dandery, but only a few of them ever leave. Cave-ins, gas-pockets, explosions and the immense heat thanks to the active hydrothermal system of the mountains make mining in Dandery probably the most dangerous job in the world. However, recently the miners have encountered a new hazard: tiny winged creatures attacking the miners and stealing ore. They seem to appear out of nowhere and have caused several fatalities already. However, since this is a hazard that could potentially be dealt with, the mining guild has offered a reward to anyone who can find the nest of these flying devils and exterminate them. So far, not many parties have been brave or dumb enough to try.

In this 4- to 5-hour adventure, a party of 4th to 5th level characters will be tasked with delving into the deepest depths of Dandery’s mines. In addition to the natural hazards they must also fight-off the mysterious winged creatures and figure out where they came from. Is the party strong-willed enough or will they, as the miners say, “break their pick”?

Nice story. For some characters it's a bit challenging to follow the restrictions like no two handed weapons or no fire/thunder damage. [...]

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.
