Slaughterhouse Indigo

Watermarked PDF

Ligna had been quiet for many weeks. Since the last bugbear died, her rooms and passageways had been silent. "Ellmay?" she called out to the Elf druid who had nurtured her as a seedling. "I’m very dry, no one has watered me in days." Still no answer. The immense manor house that was actually a living tree was only dimly aware of all the death and destruction that had befallen her inhabitants. Finally, after days of silence, a door opened. "Tellamar?" Ligna called out to the Gnome Titan that had once led the inhabitants. "Is that you? Where have you been? Are all the bugbears gone?"

But much to Ligna’s surprise and disgust, the humanoids that entered her walls began butchering the rotting corpses. She became dimly aware of bones breaking, claws rending flesh and lips smacking with old blood. Ligna absorbed what little moisture she could from what dripped on her floors, but it tasted foul, like
tainted water and liquid sorrow. "Please," pleaded the house. "Tell me who you are. I can provide you with many things."

When Ligna "talked", she actually reached out to the minds of the intruders. Usually there was at least one in ten that could hear her, but not today. One of the humanoids tore one of Ligna’s doors off the frame. She felt herself bleeding sap. "Ow! Stop it!" she cried. "Please! I have no wish to harm any of you. I know one of you can hear me, why don’t you respond?" The humanoids continued their desecration and abuse. Her walls became nicked and slashed. Her doors and windows were smashed, and every corpse was hungrily devoured and its bones strewn across her floors. Ligna tried to repel the invaders as best she could, but without at least one gnome or elf defender, all she could do was slow down her invaders. Finally, the leader reached the lower chambers.

The leader placed his claw on Ligna’s "heart". She could feel the claw’s foul magics draining her life force and slowly corrupting her. "No! Please!" she begged. "Why do you do this? I can provide for you! All the nourishment you could ever need!" "Yes," the leader finally responded with an evil rasp to his voice. "I know."

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.
