Called the Dragon Empire or the Empire of the Beasts, Vanora is one of the oldest and most unique nations in the Known Lands. Ruled by an uninterrupted dynasty of elves, Vanora is home to valiant samurai who live for their Emperor, secretive ninja who conceal themselves within shadow until the last moment ebfore they strike, and brilliant mechamages who craft majestic drakes from iron and steam. The Darkfall has not ravaged Vanora as other nations, but its threat still lurks just beneath the surface. The forests teem with undead, treachery seems to hide behind every corner, and the recent failed coup against Emperor Dyok the Younger weighs heavy in the mind of all loyal Vanorans.

This first entry in the Nations of Aden series examines the people, places, culture, and history of the nation of Vanora in vastly greater detail than ever before. Within you will find all manner of ancient secrets concerning the Dragon Empire, including the mysteries of the Way of the Ten Beasts and the deadly secrets of kuji-in, the arcane ninja hand symbols!

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.
