“As foretold by Khunem he has delivered us these champions in our time of dire need!”—Priest of Khunem, Inykhunem

 Desert River Village is a single exterior map of a sandy desert area bisected by a river. The river has two small islands in the middle with six buildings, a watch tower, and a well built on top of the islands. Two bridges span the river from the north bank to the north island and from the north island to the south island. The village can be reached via boat from the south bank. The river banks and island shores have vegetation and palm trees.

 Desert River Village is intended for use in fantasy games. It can also be utilized as an archaic desert village in pulp or modern games.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 The Chosen of Khunem:  The player characters near a village on the river in a vast desert. They may be desperate for water and food to replace their depleted supplies, which causes them to approach the village. Upon their arrival, the village Priest of Khunem, Inykhunem, dressed in a mud brown cloak, hooded mask with two ram horns, and a belt with a pattern of interlinked spokes greets them. He declares them the new Chosen of Khunem destined to save the village in their hour of greatest need. After these very public protestations he takes them inside his small temple for a private meeting with the chosen.

The priest of Khunem explains that the village of Zatis is constantly harassed by desert nomads that take grain, fish, and water from the village as tribute. If the group of adventurers ends the threat of the nomads, the priest will give them all a talisman of Khunem, a copper necklace with two ivory tusks in the front flanking a small sapphire centerpiece in a clay ball giving it the appearance of an eye. Besides the monetary value of the talisman, the talisman of Khunem marks them as believers in Khunem welcome in nearly all villages along the river with a benefit of free lodging and provisions from believers in Khunem.

 After the player characters leave, the nomads approach the village of Zatis from the south. The player characters must flee, fight the nomads and fulfill the prophecy, or perhaps even convince the nomads to join their roaming band.

Format
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.
