Forged by Envy - Tempered by Malice

Over a decade ago, Sargon, prince of the Kazdim Empire, secretly swore allegiance to Necrath in exchange for power.  The prince then murdered his father, the emperor, in cold blood and has been ruling Kazdim through the use of the Dark Arts granted to him by the Ice Duke ever since. Through the continued influence and counsel of Necrath, Sargon has built and equipped a very capable army in the years that followed.   Furthermore, he has broadened the empire's vast network of spies and informants throughout Lannithir, in an effort to increase the intelligence gathered on the other nations of men.  The prince has funded all of this through many illicit and unethical means including, but not limited to, slave trade.  One such enterprise is the operation on Claw Isle, located within the Strait of Ruinn.  For this Sargon charged one of his most trusted and capable officers, Shardeth Kazar, to head the endeavor.

Recently, Sargon has cut off all ties and treaties with the other kingdoms, and has demanded all foreign dignitaries within the borders of his empire to withdraw or face arrest.  This included the Kingdom of Tuanna, whom Kazdim has owed fealty to for the past 119 years.

With the PCs recent defeat of the temple’s slave operation in Illfrost: Bondage, they have been granted a field commission by the commander of the Tuannan Rangers.  In exchange for their service to the Stone and Throne, Scathach has promised them a monetary reward that is to be collected once aboard the Tuannan man-o-war, Vanguard.  Presently the rangers and the PCs must deal with the safe evacuation of the freed slaves, as well as the elimination of the wittershin observation posts.

What the PCs will discover during the next course of events is that there is a wittershin stockade recently constructed on Innis Oig; a larger island located directly to Claw Isle's east.  Necrath himself ordered Prince Sargon to construct the stockade, not only to house more slaves and secure the area, but also as a strategic location in which the wittershin may launch nearby raids.  The Ice Duke personally handpicked one of his most competent and crafty servants to manage this activity; Lord Lazelin, a mighty wittershin who has tactical command over all activities upon Innis Oig, Sentry Isle, and within the Strait of Ruinn.  Along with Lazelin, Sargon sent the Priestess Kishar, who runs the slave operation within the stockade, and oversees the breeding pits of the talin.

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.
