The Exiled

Nowhere in Castorhage are the simple laws of the natural food chain more apparent and clear than in the lowest levels of the Underneath. The denizens of the dark and mysterious passages below the city streets are the hunters and the hunted, chasing prey through the uncharted tunnels of the Nether while running from more deadly predators than themselves. Although solitary dwellers may succeed in quietly luring prey and escaping their enemies for a while, large bands of creatures have better chances of long-term survival. Small villages and large towns in the darkness belowthe surface aren’t by any means safe places, but at least residents can see their assailant coming; in the dark depths of the Underneath, the death screams of the lone wanderer are often never heard.

Not every creature of the Nether chooses a solitary existence. Althoughsome creatures leave their settlement to avoid paying a debt or to flee anassassin, most return when the dust settles. It is safer to take their chances with what they can see and hear than to try to survive in the tunnels all alone. However, not every creature can return to its village or town. The most egregious offenders of settlement laws are punished with a fate worse than death: exile. They are banished from their homes and pushed into the lawless and unforgiving realm beyond the safe walls to which they’ve become accustomed. They will be alone, easy prey for hungry tunnel people who wait in the shadows at the outer edges of well-traveled passages and caverns.

The Exiled (as they are called by the Underneath dwellers who encounter them) are burned with a magical insignia on their face or head that lists the settlement, the date and their crime. Any who meet one of the Exiled immediately knows the details of their banishment, and can easily refuse their entry into their village or town. The skin etching glows a faint red and can be seen through clothing, paint, or hair. Not every village and town in the Underneath uses this method to identify the Exiled, but for the sake of this adventure, most of the humanoid monster settlements have turned to using the burning stamp to keep undesirables out of their villages.

Product Information
File Size:
4.16 MB
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.
