A Promise of Death


A Promise of Death

5e adventure by Elven Tower


In A Promise of Death, a group of level-5 characters learns of a strange group of undead abominations who built a gallows by a crossroads. The undead knights capture, torture, and hang all those who attempt to go past them on the King's Road. They have hanged more than thirty people so far and thrown them into a shallow ditch. The captain of the city watch now offers a hefty reward for mercenaries and adventurers valiant enough to oppose the armored dead knights.

Unknown to most, the knights belonged to the Order of the Green Feathers. They were a powerful faction loyal to the king more than 400 years ago. Alas, they were betrayed by their ruler and hanged for a crime they did not commit. Now they have returned with a promise to bring death to all those in the kingdom. In their rageful eyes, all the living are guilty of the hell they were forced to endure. Hatred is the force that drove them to return from the afterlife!

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.
