Showdown in Spellhold: A Player Primer Adventure


Off the coast of Amn lies Spellhold, a long-abandoned magical asylum where the most dangerous mages of old would be held. Spellhold is strictly off-limits to all, but strange lights have been spotted from the mainland. So the Council of Five, rulers of Amn, have allowed access to a very select few—including the players! Heroes will have to navigate the demands and desires of Amn's most powerful factions while searching for the secret truth of Spellhold.

Showdown in Spellhold is designed as a one-shot introduction to Amn and its factions and provides new heroes with opportunities to form relationships that can lead to an ongoing campaign. With your purchase you will receive:

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.
