Dwarves of the Ironcrags

Watermarked PDF

Visit the heights of the Ironcrag Mountains, where dwarves master rune magic, forge powerful new magic, and keep dark secrets in fraternal societies.

More than taciturn miners and miserly smiths, the dwarves of Zobeck have a richly varied culture that includes slavers, secretive orders, and magical blades containing the souls of the dead.

  • The Dwarves of the Ironcrags Gazetteer describes all these aspects of Zobeck dwarven culture and more: Descriptions of all the dwarven cantons, including those that were lost
  • An examination of dwarven society, from bride-prices to the dwarven view of slavery
  • The Fraternal Order of Illuminated Brothers, a secretive order complete with prestige classes
  • The Kariv, a downtrodden group of wandering nomads often welcome among the dwarves
  • Dwarven magic, including new spells and magic items of dwarven and derro creation
  •  A bestiary containing nine new monsters and templates.
  •  Full heraldry and a regional map of the Cantons

A somewhat different take on dwarven culture, here describing a society based on a combination of democracy and slave-ownership (with more of a nod to Ancient Greece than to, say, the Antebellum South). I doubt it would be useful as a description of a [...]

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.
