Curious Things: Horrid Treasures


The door to the treasure chamber gave way with a final blow from the warrior’s heavy axe. Peering inside the trio of adventurers saw nothing more than a simple wooden box sitting on a plain stone pedestal. Curiously enough, the box was unlocked and opened easily. Lying inside the box was nothing more than mummified human hand. Its withered flesh was covered in strange tattoos.
“What is this?!?” roared the warrior in anger as the group’s mage studied the hand with a concerning frown. Suddenly the rogue reaches forward and snatches up the mummified hand. The tattoos begin to faintly glow and the wrinkled cold fingers start to twitch. “This is mine!” the rogue exclaims with a most disturbing look in his eyes.

In a high fantasy realm there are rare treasures that often defy the norm. Typically unique to semi-unique in nature, these items of curiosity tend to be part of a much richer history, making them much more valuable amongst educated collectors. Some of these treasures may even possess strange magical properties or other faint supernatural elements.

This product introduces six different treasures to your high fantasy role playing campaign. These items are all either unique or minimal in number. These curiosities all share a dark, grim theme and all have two sets of monetary value. The first and more expensive value is for interested collectors who know the history behind the item. The second value is a common marketplace worth that is based on the appraisal of the item without the knowledge of such past.

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.
