Description:

The Lost Pyramid of Imhoptep is An OSRIC(tm) module designed for 4-6 adventurers of levels 4-7.

Several months back, a small boy from the village of Ab-Amon happened upon a buried column while playing out in the surrounding desert. He reported to the village elders that the column bore strange and frightening symbols that he, in his youthful exuberance, insisted were curses. Being as the boy was known to have a photographic memory, he was able to accurately draw the queer symbols for the village elders when asked. The elders, being somewhat familiar with the
ancient history of their region, quickly came to the realization that the symbols must be associated in some way with a pharaoh, for they were enclosed by a lozenge-shaped border. Even though they lacked the ability to directly translate the ancient hieroglyphics, they did realize that such a design, a cartouche, was used to spell out the name of the pharaoh along with all of his royal titles. Perhaps, just perhaps, the local wizard reasoned, the pillar could be linked to the tomb of the master architect Imhotep, whose final resting place has never been found.

If you enjoy this adventure, look for future releases in the Advanced Adventures line from Expeditious Retreat Press.

The pyramid is upside down? The text is DM unfriendly (no blocking/highlighting of text to be read to players). There is no B/W art at all to speak of, no pre-generated characters, no wandering monster list, and no rumor table. Its just missing too many [...]

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.
