Bits of the Banquet: Into the Desserts

ZIP File

Finally let your PCs get their just desserts! Rather than going Into the Desert, this product takes you Into the Desserts. Taking a brief break from our usual realistic terrain descriptions, Tabletop Adventures instead brings you to the banquet table. These luscious descriptions are based on historical dishes from the 14th to 18th centuries and are suitable for a king's feast or a celebratory dinner in honor of a quest fulfilled. If your mind runs in more devious directions, these delicacies could appear as part of a fool's feast, seasoned with some obscure poison. Sweet!

Bits of the Banquet: Into the Desserts features four pages with twenty delectable descriptions, suitable for any game system because they are light and fluffy, without any crunch. In addition to utility in a fantasy setting, they could be used to help simulate an historical dinner held in the modern era, or provide ideas for dishes on some distant world.

Augment your imagination with products from Tabletop Adventures.

This product does exactly what it says, providing a number of descriptions of desserts which a DM can insert into any game, to provide a little more (pardon the pun) flavor. The descriptions are all excellent and well-written (though some of them spend [...]

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.
