The Awakening

Watermarked PDF


"...from the moment you pick it up, the whole thing absolutely oozes with quality." Papers-and-Paychecks, review posted at 


1,000 years ago, a race of locust-like inter-dimensional humanoids known as the villoi came to the Prime Material Plane on a colonization mission. In the name of their deity, the Hive Queen, they initiated the construction fortified temples in the forested regions to the northwest of Cannabaudes.

Once completed, the temples became the base of operations for a campaign of terror against the good peoples of the regions surrounding Cannabaudes. Their hit and run attacks instilled fear across the region. After many decades, the villoi abandoned the Prime Material Plane. But a few enclaves of the vile creatures remained behind, hidden deep within their mighty temples. These communes of villoi entered into an artificially induced hibernation, in the hopes of being resuscitated in later centuries by new and hopefully more formidable ambassadors of their race, and continue their plague upon the inhabitants of the Verméan continent.

And now the villoi have been awakened from their centuries-long slumber by an evil greater even than themselves. Can your party of intrepid adventurers stop the combined menace before all the lands are over-run? Enter the lands west of the infamous Blood Pass to uncover the secret, and thwart The Awakening.

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.
