The Curse of Castle Stieglitz

Watermarked PDF

The Curse of Castle Stieglitz is a complete, ready-to-play adventure for 4-6 questers of 10th-12th level.  

Rumor has it that in his isolation, Baron Stieglitz has allowed himself to become corrupted by dark, sinister, undead forces. His greed led him down a path of self-ruin until he himself became a wight. Wretched and sinister, the villagers of Talook have begun to fear for their lives. He is so corrupted, he has not left his bed chamber in months. The allegiances of his men have splintered, and four rival factions have set up their own mini-baronies within his lands.

As the questers travel the road to Castle Stieglitz they encounter groups of men collecting tolls.  These groups are from the different factions of the Baron’s splintered army.  Once they reach the Talook they will encounter Anna, the most respectable of the Baron’s commanders, and a visiting clergyman who ask them to confront the Baron and help put things right.  Within the castle they can either convince the Baron to atone and right his fief or they can extinguish his unlife and help establish a new ruler.  Either way the questers must deal with the bands of freebooters now roaming the area.  The leaders of the three bands must be convinced to work with the new ruler, or be eliminated.  Only then can peace return to the lands of Northbay, the Great Marsh and the Cyrűk Mountains.

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.
