Is your band of adventurers stuck on the sidelines because there’s no one to run the game? Have no fear, the wait is over! This first installment of a players-only adventure will allow you to create detailed characters and run them through five levels of dungeon-delving danger while interacting with the town of Mountain View as they progress. Fight the monsters, find the treasure, barter with merchants, then brag about it at the tavern and get into a bar brawl, all without any down time to prep for the next adventure.
Back to Basics uses the prime essentials which make d20 gaming fun and leaves out the tedious rules that can bog down a good gaming session. Character creation can be anything from a ruthless, Human warrior to a nimble, Elven spell-wielder to a noble Dwarven Paladin or a traditional Cleric who can turn undead with the best of them. Fine-tune your character with skills and feats to build the hero you want, then romp around in a Goblin infested under-mountain realm of treacherous passages, flooded chambers and devious traps that will test your dungeon delving resolve. Best of all: the adventure is replayable.
Path of Legends adventures are built with a number of random elements that make it impossible to have the same experience the next time around. The dice-rolling doesn’t end when you finish the book – just make some new characters and run the gauntlet again. Optimized for a party of four, but easily modified for more or less players, Back to Basics is an essential manual for the busy weekend warriors because the minutes of a weekly gaming session are too valuable to waste not having fun.

The PDF costing the same as the printed book seems crazy to me.

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.
