Isle of the Angry Apes (5e)


An adventure for characters of levels 5-8.

Wow, those apes are angry!

Smoking Island, in the Cymru Islands off the northeast coast of the North-lands, was, is, and will be destroyed. That which cannot be slain was slain and the island exists in several times at once. Recently, or perhaps a few decades from now, a cadre of legionaries serving the Three Kings of Smoking Island captured a Northlander longship and put to sea only to discover there was no way back to their home time.

Led by the Centurion Talkithis, the grey apes established a base on Young Island, scraping what living they can amidst the jagged rocks beneath a sulfurous sky. While exploring the volcanic wastes of Young Island, Talkithis contacted a tendril of the Sleeping Fire, that ancient entity that inhabits Smoking Island and whose death shattered time. The Sleeping Fire needs souls to power its escape, and Talkithis provides them in exchange for the might to save his crew.

Yet, as the months have passed the Sleeping Fire has corrupted the grey apes. No longer content to simply tend weedy gardens, they have taken to raiding shipping far and wide, taking loot for their own use, prisoners to work as slaves, and sacrifices for the Sleeping Fire. No longer castaway soldiers, they are becoming fiendish warriors and loyal servants of an evil flame that longs to awaken. Its heat burns in their veins and clouds their minds, and these piratical apes are so very angry.

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.
