Dragons of Legend


"Dragons."  Even the very word is enough to illicit a visceral reaction.  Every culture in the world has legends of these fearsome beast, and every one is distinct.  There is no reason to use generic Dragons in your game when the world is full of unique examples.<o:p></o:p>

Dragons of Legend presents five stories of dragons from around the world:<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

The Hi-no-kami from Japan<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

The Irish Fire Dragon<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

The Lambton Wrym of Britain<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

The Ryu-Hime (Dragon Princess) of Lake Biwa, Japan<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

The Pre-Columbian Piasa from what is now Illinois<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

These stories are told in as close to their original form as possible.  (When dealing with myths there is always a question of which version is the "Original".)  Not only do these legends go into detail about the type of damage the dragon can inflict, they describe how to the beasts can be overcome.  Even if you do not intend to use these legends in your campaign, player and GMs alike can learn from the methods employed by the heroes of the stories.<o:p></o:p>

Dragons of Legend provides game mechanics for each dragon, and other creatures from the stories.  These statistics are as easy to use as a standard monster, but they are written straight from the legends, not to fill a predefined place in a Challenge Rating X dungeon.<o:p></o:p>

If you’re tired of using stereotypical dragons strait from computer games, flip through Dragons of Legend and confront the player's characters with one of these fearsome foes, for an adventure worthy of being retold down through the ages.<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.
