An Adventurer's Guide to Old Coryan

"Now leave this place, for men are coming, men who will blame you for my death, and see you executed. And remember, the Sarishans conceal the keys to knowledge within the shadows." The head smiles knowingly at you, and stops speaking. The spark of life leaves its eyes as blood oozes from its neck. Suddenly you hear a scream, and look up to see a woman standing in mute horror on one of the stairways above. She is looking at the body and the head on the bench, and she starts screaming loudly, "Murderers! Someone bring the Watch! The Horned King has been killed!"


The Queen of Cities

Of all the fabulous empires, kingdoms, nations, city-states, hoary tracts, and territories that sprawl across the face of Onara, the vast expanse of the lofty Coryani Empire is the greatest. Within this simple tome can be found the birthplace of greatness and glory, the ancient City of Coryan.

Surpassed by the newer city of Grand Coryan, Old Coryan remains as a largely forgotten, neglected relic of the age before the birth of Empire. Now a den of malcontents, thieves, and outcasts, the ancient metropolis is fertile ground for intrigue and mischief.

An Emperor's Bloody Oath

In the depths of the Shadowed Age, Yeolin, ancient King of Coryan, made a terrible oath sealed in the blood of the val'Assante line. For millennia the val'Assante have paid this debt to keep the ancient God of the Hills appeased with rites of blood and sacrifice by his Horned King. Without this payment, the land would know blight until the role of Horned King was again filled. The Horned King now lies dead and only the blood of the first among the val'Assante can set things aright.

Within these pages, one will find:

A complete, original city rife with opportunities for adventure and suitable for hosting an entire campaign!
New feats, magical items, monsters, races, and skills!
A complete adventure suitable for use in home campaigns or as an added bonus, by Living Arcanis characters at home!

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.
