Pirate Places: Warlock's Journal Contest #12


What is an appropriate place for a pirate? It might be a tropical island, a hidden cove, or a smoky tavern. The place might be somewhere in the real world, or in a fantasy setting. Over a dozen authors wrote descriptions of 18 different places, fans chose their favorite, and all these pirate places are now available to you!

The Warlock’s Journal is an interdimensional book that moves through the planes always seeking new information. In September 2014 it was discovered by the minions of Tabletop Adventures. In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, they decided to add some descriptions of good locations for pirates, so they held a contest and this product is the result.

Not only does this contain the 18 creative entries submitted for the contest, but Tabletop Adventures also added some bonus content: a set of descriptions outlining a hunt for pirate treasure! In addition, the sponsor of the October Warlock's Journal Contest provided an early look at what that contest would involve.

Pick up a copy of Pirate Places today, now with extra swashbuckling goodness!

Born of inspiration. Direkt to play locations for most piate, smuggler or mystery settings. A little work has to be done to match with german, dutch or scandinavian adventures. Realy close to a must have! [...]

Most of these were very interesting. Some were a bit too short, others overly long, but all-in-all, enjoyable to read and consider using in a campaign...if only my players liked swashbuckling. I found some of the simple ideas just as good as the compl [...]

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.
