If you need a themed map now, with plenty of prompts to inspire adventure - ahead of time or at the table - look no further...

Landscape: The Noxious Ponds is a tool containing two versions of a detailed map: one of them pre-marked, the other blank.

The first version is marked with six locations (well, annexes, island, depths, sink and cistern), each given a table of six possible encounters or discoveries. It is also marked with six access points and the page has six possible rumour seeds.

The second version has no lettering or numbering, to make it easier for you to adapt it to the circumstances in your world.

Each map can be used as it is, possibly in conjunction with 1:285 (6mm) scale miniatures, or redrawn as required in play.

The tool is compatible with various genres and systems and suitable for use in roleplaying and beyond. It can be used as all or part of an adventure site, or the basis for one, as well as to inspire events at the site, even at the table in the course of games.

The three pages are arranged for ease of use on screen or printed, each version occupying a single page. The tool includes:

  • two versions of a detailed map - one of them pre-marked, the other blank
  • six marked locations - well, annexes, island, depths, sink and cistern
  • six tables, one per marked location, each with six encounters or discoveries
  • six possible rumour seeds relating to the map, for expansion or inspiration

The tool can be used with Narrative: Abandoned Space, the map elements acting as a setting or structure for development. It can also be used in representing the kind of subterranean space suggested in World: Shale or a section of the tunnels running through the weird mountainous shore of Screeside, as featured in Abandoned Space and Events: Screeside - The Gloaming.

It is the ninth entry in an ongoing series which so far includes The Lost Dig, The Acrid Well, The Low Mere, The Great Pit, The Livid Run, The Arid Gash, The Broken Road and The Vermian Maze.

All of the entries in the series are also part of the main bundle.

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.
