Marchlands Pocket Adventure Setting Primer - Supplement for Black Spear

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

Some might call the Marchlands a feral wilderness. Barbarian territory, unexplored, untamed, uncivilized, and inhabited by outlaws, exiles, and savages. Such people might be correct, in some ways, but the vast Marchlands are far from empty or lacking in history or culture. The people of the Marchlands live in roaming bands or pastoral clan communities.  Historically, the people that are now Marchlanders came from all directions, settling in waves from the surrounding regions, sometimes from far beyond what is now regarded as the known world: refugees from the frigid wastes of the far north, exiles from a once-young empire to the south, pioneers from the lands beyond the eastern nomad ranges, and most recently those fleeing the newfound tyranny in the west. Despite their varied origins, however, the Marchlanders have come to have a distinct and identifiable culture of their own, which serves as a unifying force among the many communities. Where many Marchlander communities feud and ordinarily refuse to cooperate within this culture, the Marchlanders tend to favor their own over outsiders, and can typically set aside their grievances to address any such threats or issues.

It is in this region in increasingly strange and changing times that the Marchland Pocket Adventures and all core Black Spear adventures take place.  This document serves as a guide for the culture, factions, laws, and other information relevant to those adventures.  It will be updated as that series develops.  The first such adventure will be released a dew days after the initial day of release of this primer.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
