Welcome to the next great expansion to the already expansive Great City Campaign Setting.  The Elder Wards brings to life five new wards hidden within the Great City each of which lies beyond the reach or influence of the Kortezian government. 

The five new wards include:
The Brute Runs — miles secret mazes once used by the rebel Hardy Brutes to covertly traverse the city
The Imperial Guild of Arcanists and Engineers — vast cellars of that hide beneath the Points and whose guild members engage in all manner of obscene arcane experiments.
Malchort Ruins — the buried remains of an ancient city where lurk the malevolent descendants of the near-human pre-Azindraleans.
The Mooncursers' Ward — secret passages that connect smugglers to Porttown the fabled city of thieves
The Roachkin Warrens — the subterranean hives inhabited by the feral survivalists that the surface folk call the roachkin. 

Each richly detailed Ward provides a history and general overview of its most important places, a close look at a prominent location, a featured encounter that can be run as a mini-adventure, and a collection of associated NPCs. As a bonus, we've topped the book off with an Elder Wards Bestiary containing a dozen new creatures and a new prestige class. 

So go ahead, scratch beneath the surface and breath life into those dark and a secret places that lie hidden within the Great City.

You can download a free adventure set in the Elder Wards here.

We give it four throwing knives out of five but it receives the coveted shuriken for having an encounter wherein one kills turtles (raising its score). A full video review and in-depth consideration of the work is located here: [...]

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.
