Arcana, The Northlands Source Book


Welcome to our Black Friday weekend sale! For more early holiday savings, visit our sale page.

The realms of the north can be a cold place, wild with game, monsters and goblins.  Here the green folk have their greatest numbers and the longest history of war and slaughter.  The Northern realms are thus an independent, tough collection of people, stout in their beliefs and strong in their desires to protect what is theirs by birthright and might.

The Northlands runs the length of the northern half of Terival, the lands north of the Dragon’s Maul and west of the goblin infested Dark North.  The Northlands is composed of cold, wind swept plains and hard grass and brush and the deep, wide expanse of the great Northern woods, which covers the whole top of the area, from the sea to the Bay of the Lion’s Maul.

Here men, dwarfs and hidden conclaves of elves struggle to survive not only the hard lands they call home, but also the constant threat of goblin war and monstrous beasts.  Life is hard and cold in the north, but this has only made the folk of the land more determined and ready to face what life throws at them.

A complete guide to the Northlands, with information on its history, people, places and culture.  Also comes with several new full color maps and lots of information you wont get anywhere else.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p>If you love Arcana, then this is a must have addition to you collection.</o:p>

Don’t just play at the adventure, live it with Arcana.<o:p></o:p>

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.
