Description:

"Down into that hole? You gotta be kidding! We all heard what that turnip-farmer said about this place being haunted. I don't believe in ghosts, but I wouldn't go down in that hole for all the gold in Poland!"

The icon know as Our Lady of Czestochowa (commonly called the Black Madonna because of the dark patina which covers it) is the symbol of Poland's religeous, cultural, and national identity. For centuries the icon's image has been a rallying standard of Polish nationalism, of Polish independence.

To some men, the Madonna was a light that would lead Poland from the darkness. To others, however, the Madonna represented a different kind of hope. The owner of the Madonna could command the loyalty of the Polish people. To these men, the Madonna represented power and wealth beyond imagining.

It was a question of who would find Her first.

The Black Madonna is an adventure module for Twilight: 2000. Silesia, in southern Poland, is the backdrop for a quest for a religious icon of great value. Was the icon taken east by the Soviets? Was it hidden in a cave by Polish patriots? Was it destroyed when Czestochowa was bombed? Did the NATO forces who occupied the city briefly carry it west with them? Or, does it rest beneath the ruins of Czestochowa? There is only one way to know for sure...

Over and above the main adventure, this module provides a picture of life in southwest Poland after the destruction of the war. The surviving cities, the resources, the petty lordlings and the major powers are given life and detail. From the court of the Markgraf of Silesia to the camps of the bandit gangs; from the ruined factories of Czestochowa and Gliwice to the slowly recovering facilities of Raciborz and Rybnik; all are described in rich detail.

Scanned image
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.
