The Story

Big cities and organized crime usually go hand in hand. Yet, the holy city of Kalke seems to harbour no unsavoury elements whatsoever. The streets are both clean and safe. There are no black-markets, no gambling houses, and no brothels. The devout citizens of Kalke attribute their peace to the wise leadership of their Gods’ representative on Earth: Praetor Benin of Catena. It is said, that through his wise leadership, no evil shall ever be able to put down roots into Kalke. Any sinner caught within the city’s walls will be purified in the temple of Catena Rock and emerge as a God-fearing citizen. However, tales and legends do not always reflect the entire truth. In reality, Praetor Benin rules his city of chains through religious fear-mongering and propaganda. The famous Catena Rock may look like a temple, but it functions much like prison. Within its halls, dissenters either get worked to death or “encouraged” to swear their loyalty the theocracy of Kalke. Rumour also has it, that an ancient God is bound to an altar under Catena Rock, devouring the souls of the hopeless sinners trapped within.

In this 5-6-hour campaign, a party of 6th to 8th level characters will be thrown into Catena Rock. Chained together and under the mercy of the insane head-warden Ava, they’ll either escape or spend the rest of their lives in servitude to the theocracy of Kalke. Will the party be able to find a way out? Is there any truth to the weird rumour of a God sleeping under Catena Rock? It is up to the players to find out, or they’ll remain forever “Bound in Chains”

I used this as a foundation for a prison break in my homebrew campaign for 11-14 yr olds. I made a few tweaks and edits so it would fit neatly into the campaign's chapter, but it was extremely helpful and inspirational for developing a concept I was ot [...]

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.
