Secret of Serpent Tor

Watermarked PDF

The ruin had been there since the time of my grandfather's grandfather. No-one knew cared what it had once been.  What it had become to us was a source of dressed stone for our homes and granaries and for the walls that we built about the fields.

Within the hillside, through what was left of the dilapidated ruin stood a plaster statue of what we assumed was some long-forgotten hero, or deity perhaps.  Plaster.  For generations we had thought the statue to be worthless plaster, and we had left it untouched, perhaps out of reverence for those who had once felt the subject worthy of a statue.

Then, one day, I found a block of stone had fallen from the roof and cracked the plaster away from the statue's shoulder.  What I found beneath was the first surprise, but not the last, for what I found beneath the plaster was gold. 

Who had hidden it thus and why I knew not, but there it was, a king's ransom in a damp, dingey chamber within the hill.  Nothing but the ancient, crumbling ruins outside to watch over it.  Or so we thought… Not until we tried to move it did we uncover the true, and dreadful, Secret of Serpent Tor.  A secret that cost me an eye and the lives of so many old friends.  A secret that wakes me screaming in the night still to this day.

The Secret of Serpent Tor is a an adventure for the Spelldancer fantasy RPG by Gethsemane Games. Intended for a small group of of moderately experienced or a larger group of inexperienced characters, the adventure pitches the party headlong into a desperate struggle to contain an ancient evil, a cult of demonic serpent folk, unleashed after centuries of imprisonment and bent on once again subduing all around them.

Fabulous wealth and terrible danger await those that would learn The Secret of Serpent Tor.

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.
