Part Two of the Albenistan Series, a d20 Modern adventure supplement

Information gathered from a raid on a drug smuggling waystation near the village of Ashkashem has led Great Britain's Secret Intelligence Service to investigate an abandoned vehicle repair facility near the town of Qalashar along Albenistan's border with Afghanistan. It seems the abandoned facility is abandoned no more. Someone has occupied the base, but for what purpose? Worse, a letter recovered in the Ashkashem raid refers to a device or weapon that will 'strike fear in the hearts of the enemy and destroy their feeble resolve.' What kind of device could be hiding at the Qalashar facility? Fear of what this weapon might be and how it could be used has lead the SIS to reactivate the Increment unit that successfully completed the raid on Ashkasham. Their mission: discover who has occupied the Qalashar facility and neutralize any threat that might be posed by the Qalashar Device.

Wyrdmaster at Gamewyrd says: "It's dead simple. If you want a no-fx d20 military adventure and buy adventures then cough up the peanuts for this download."

Nick Mulherin at Silven Crossroads says: "Fraser Ronald has spent a lot of time getting the details and feel of the base down, including when the men eat, what they keep in their closets, and what their coffee cups look like. Like the base in Raid on Ashkashem, there's a lived-in feel to it, especially given small touches such as a TV playing a South American soap opera dubbed into Russian with Tajik subtitles."

Wayne Tonjes at says: "Overall, this is an interesting mission for a military d20 Modern campaign with nice options for connecting to the other adventures of the series."

Dallas Parsons at d20 Zines says: "I think this series of adventures would be best used as a filler period between campaigns, or if the players were just wanting a night of shooting terrorists."

Lots of details and I can't fault the accuracy of them. It's a bland and generic location, which is worse when the situation seems highly unusual - an Islamist rebel force running its own armoured vehicle repair shop and refitting/deploying SSM trucks [...]

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.
