The Palace of 1001 Rooms, Chapter 1 - The Gatehouse


This is the Gatehouse section of the Palace of 1001 Rooms. It contains rooms 1-100 of The Palace of 1001 Rooms.

This is a module for Dungeons & Dragons gaming systems. The concept is a magical and mysterious palace in the clouds, accessible from many worlds, whose rooms are all connected by portals that lead to random locations within the palace. It's a ready-to-go, off-the-shelf, mega-dungeon romp for 1st - 20th level characters, with a lot of old 2nd and 1st edition content presented in a generic, non edition-specific format. Players or DMs roll a d100 to determine the room they're in and there is a corresponding page number in the pdf. It's a 1:1 match, so a roll of 53 sends the DM and players to page 53 of the pdf, where the details of that room are shown along with an illustration.

There stood on the edge of the world (and perhaps many others), a place beyond where the firmament and oceans ended; a place of eternal sky. It appeared as an endless sea of billowing clouds. One would always observe it as though it had a horizon, even though it extended in all directions. Underneath was an endless blue sky, and the same above. But in the middle were the towers of colossal clouds. They stretched on into eternity on all the points of the compass (which, by this point, could no longer show true north).

And in the middle of this vast sky, there sits an impressive palace of scattered towers and keeps. They hang suspended amidst the clouds from which they rise, as though the pillowy vapors support them, sometimes separated from each other by a mile or more of distance. The architecture is varied, as if erected by different builders of different times, some of them perhaps even alien to the observer. To the east might sit some great ziggurat and to the west something more akin to a tudor castle. Pyramids, obelisks, towers and even mammoth copper domes all stand perplexingly arrayed at dizzying heights. In the darker depths an observer might catch a glimpse of some, strange non-euclidean structure for a moment before the mists swallowed it.

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.
