The Dream Engine

Four colorful crystalline structures sit upon pedestals, power being drawn via specialized tubes to power this gigantic machine. Gears whirl and grind as switches are flipped, releasing colorful gases below the main platform of the machine.

The heart of the machine sits at the top of a set of stairs, strange alien ciphers carved into it’s base. A large hologram of the world spins slowly in it’s center as a grid system layered above attends to unknown activities.

Adventure Seed

One month ago the nightmares started, at first it was only the village’s children who were effected. They had trouble sleeping and would always wake crying, claiming to be tormented by horrific, deformed creatures.

If it was only one or two of them this could have been claimed to be coincidence. However night after night this occurred to each and every child of the village.

The healer of the village at first thought this could perhaps be some type of fever affecting the young but no herbal medicines had any effect on fighting off the nightmares. When help was finally sought from the nearest city, the reply was shocking.

This was not some disease afflicting just the children of this small village but something greater that was afflicting all the children of the kingdom. Soon after this, adults began experiencing these nightmares too.

Now that everyone in the kingdom is being effected by these night terrors, you’ve been put in contact with a strange wizard who will help you track down the source of this affliction and end it before people start getting hurt due to accidents caused by lack of sleep, or before anything else more malicious occurs.

The wizard explains that he believes dreams are fundamentally connected to the divine, he thinks that dreams come from a demi-plane which he seems to have mapped.

He’s able to create a portal to allow you through to this demi-plane to deal with whatever is corrupting the realm but he will be required to stay behind and maintain the portal, for if the portal was to close you may be trapped in a realm of constantly shifting reality, never to return.

When you arrive you notice shifting shadows deep below the platform where you stand and small tendrils of ebony vapor entering the holographic world in front of you. When you get closer a shadowy apparition coalesces in order to stop your advance, tormenting you with horrible visions.

What’s going on? An evil entity has made it’s way into the realm of dreams corrupting the dreams of those on the material realm to weaken the people for a greater threat that is still yet to reveal itself from the shadows.

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.
