Dragonriders Hold

The path leads through a forest, past a lake and to the foot of a large cliff where a small opening can be found with stone stairs carved into it. The winding stairs seem to go on forever but, finally you arrive in the dragonriders hold.

In the main living area there is a feasting table full of food and a large parchment map of the surrounding kingdoms, at the end of the table also lies an altar with a shield and twin swords upon it. A small set of sleeping quarters is connected to this area, as well as an armory and then the kitchen which looks over the valley below.

Next to the kitchen is a large open cavern which houses the dragons and a bridge that leads over to another set of stairs that continues to climb up through the mountain. At the top of the stairs across a natural bridge lies a bastion covered in a large set of ballistas.

Adventure Seed

A local village has been attacked twice over the last few months by humanoid figures riding young dark colored dragons and thus have sought your help in tracking down the home base of these raiders and putting an end to there attacks.

A woodsman leads you to the area where he last spotted the large flying creatures before quickly shuffling off afterwards back towards town. Before you lies a large cliff and thin dirt path which leads to winding sets of staircases carved into the stone.

After much travel up the dark staircases you reach lit torches and soon after enter a small internal room with a central wooden table full of food and a map. Two men at the table look surprised to see you and quickly grab their crossbows, while a third figure kneeling at the altar grabs a spear.

They don’t attack immediately but will accuse you of being involved with a group called blackwing and having come to finish the job. If you manage to deescalate the conflict the dragonriders will explain that they are from a small clan from the far north, which was driven out of their lands by a new dragonrider clan using demonically empowered dragons.

This new blackwing clan appears to be the clan that has been attacking the local village for supplies while hunting down the remnants of the other dragonrider clans. The dragonriders have been fortifying this old hold in the understanding that the blackwing clan will never give up hunting them and intends on one final last stand.

Based on how you found these dragonriders the blackwing clan are expected to find them any day now, will you stand and fight with them? Or leave them to their fate?

Product Information
File Size:
260.22 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.
