City Book 2; Port Apek


It's Thanksgiving weekend! In celebration, this title has been marked down by 33%! For more holiday savings, visit our Black Friday to Cyber Monday sale page.

Port Apek, one of the founding cities of the Empire, stands upon the northern bank of the Great River Apek where it meets the Orcryst. A bulwark against the dangerous wildlands south of the river, Port Apek is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Hinterlands, where people from all over the world come to ply their trade in the summer or enjoy the famous "Freeswords Festival" in the winter.

The Freeswords Festival, where the best (and the worst) mercenaries from across the Empire and beyond come to compete and demonstrate their martial prowess.

Meanwhile, beneath the city, in the mysterious tunnels of the Undercity, where the ratmen serve the city by maintaining its sewers, many dark and terrible secrets lurk unseen by the eyes of the Imperial authorities.

Port Apek, where all across the city strange things occur when the Blue Moon is full and bathes the city in its eerie glow.

City Guide 2 is a supplement for the Spelldancer RPG by Gethsemane Games, but can easily be used to provide a fascinating city setting in any fantasy RPG.

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.
