Adventuring can be dangerous. That's why every treasure-hunter needs the proper equipment. With the introduction of our "Adventurer Essentials" line we will examine the items that every adventurer needs to ensure he makes it back alive for the next adventure. Time-tested, and proven by countless dungeon crawls and wilderness expeditions, these are the essentials you'll need to survive the dangers ahead.

The next piece of essential gear covered in the "Adventurer Essentials" line is the Lantern.

You cannot fight what you cannot see.

You can’t solve a puzzle if you can’t find the pieces.

Without light, there is no heroism or victory, just blind frustration and futility. Lanterns are a uniquely human invention, a mechanical substitute for the keen night-eyes the nearly-human races possess. The lantern provides a way for a night-fighting human to meet his orcish, elven or dwarvish counterpart on equal footing, and the glow of a lantern lit city visible on the open plain is a tangible reminder of the power of human ingenuity to beat back the darkness.

No adventurer would ever dare wander into the coldly lethal caverns under the known world without a lantern held high. No walled city’s watchman would make his rounds without a kerosene flash clipped to his belt. No peasant farmer surviving at the edge of the world would dare venture out into his field to dump the night dirt without a lantern vouch-safing his steps.

The lantern is an adventuring essential- a humble tool that’s infinitely useful and that no wanderer could survive without.

This release for the Adventurer Essentials line details the history of the Lantern, as well as various mundane light sources from the simple candle, the Dwarven Foss-kalk, various human lanters and the fuel they use to illuminate. Additionally, eleven new magical variations are also presented. From the Ambusher's Lantern to a Stonecutters Bullseye and the Lantern of the Dying Wisp. Add some illumination to your campaign with this essential PDF!

Magic and special items, many race-specific, work well with the theme - particularly good to see a human-specific item. A couple of these thematically might be better as artifacts. [...]

Despite the title, this booklet covers a range of different light sources - excluding torches, which got their own book. There are a wide range of such light sources here, with some discussion of their relative pros and cons, and quite a lot of magic [...]

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.
