Advanced Adventures #7: The Sarcophagus Legion


The Sarcophagus Legion is An OSRIC(tm) module designed for 4-6 adventurers of levels 2-4.


Sultan Mehmet rules his desert kingdom with absolute power, save for the trackless wastes of the interior where the authority of his army and bureaucrats holds no sway. The nomadic dervishes that call this inhospitable sea of sand their home recognize no authority greater than the warlord who leads their individual band. Sultan Mehmet is viewed with contempt by these barbarians, and the instruments of his rule are attacked whenever the opportunity presents itself. The two people are effectively at war, and have been for centuries.


Recently, Sultan Mehmet’s beautiful wife Syriana fell into the grasp of the dervishes when the caravan with which she was traveling came under attack. Now, her desperate and humiliated husband has turned to courageous and resourceful adventurers to see to it that she is returned safe and unharmed.

It's so nice to find a series that doesn't feature annoying boxed text, shoehorning words into the DM's mouth. Sure you can always skip them, but the writer often provides crucial information buried in there.

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.
