Eye on Cormyr #4


Well met!

And welcome. The spirit of Halloween permeates this, the fourth installment of Eye on Cormyr.

In this issue you will find a host of brand new features. If you're running low on encounter ideas, Close Encounters has thirteen suggestions to surprise your players with. (Who knew skeletons could lend adventurers a helping hand?). Check out Haunts and Horrors for a taste of the many hauntings, ghostly apparitions, and horrors lurking in the darkest corners of the King's Forest. Not sure how to generate place names and short but interesting descriptions for them to capture the character's attention? The DM's Workshop shows you how to do just that by mining book indexes, and provides ten examples set in Cormyr. (Felsharp's Bonepile is my favorite.) Curious to know what the Crown of Cormyr does with the corpses of its soldiers? The Purple Dragons has the answers to this question, and more. Matters of Magic rounds out this month's new features with a look at the living legacy of Tsharliira, wizard of Eveningstar, and exhibits a few items of magic Tsharliira crafted late in life, such as her Wand of Spell Parrying.

Several features from Issue #3 make a return appearance this month. Background Assistance explains the differences between Cormyrean High Guilds and Cormyrean Craft Guilds, and lists 22 guild businesses for a character with the Guild Artisan Background to choose from. The catalogue of Lady Ruvelle Keskrel's watch in the Hermit's Wood continues in part two of Nobles of Cormyr, which includes a map of the Hermit's Woods and vicinity. Words and Phrases describes the roles of the many Jacks of Cormyr, while Adventure Awaits sends 1st level characters up a tower, down a pond, and off to the fanged peaks of the Stormhorns. Miscellany caps this issue's offerings with a useful breakdown of all the things you didn't know you needed to know about "Elminster Must Die," a novel set in Cormyr

A friendly reminder: Letter and number combinations (e.g., "D19") are map coordinates for a specific hex on the map of West-Central Cormyr found at the end of this issue.

Good gaming to you and yours. Thanks for reading!

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.
