Akari’s Refuge

Weary from your journey along the steep, frozen road, you are glad to arrive at Akari’s Refuge. It is well known amongst those who traverse the mountain range, and is protected against the harsh snow storms that occasionally descend.

Akari, a beautiful young woman with long, white hair emerges, wearing a monk’s kimono. She welcomes you inside her small home for warm jasmine tea and sweet mochi. When you are finished, she sets the table with many little bowls and plates of delicious hot food, and invites you to enjoy the meal.

Afterwards, as you leave her home and enter the courtyard, you begin to feel extremely drowsy. Spider legs the length of Akari’s body emerge from her back, and you hear the echoes of many feet scuttling throughout the surrounding tunnels—heading in your direction.

Spiders the size of small dogs emerge. Akari smiles and shrugs, “My children need to eat as well.”

What’s happening? The real Akari was killed weeks ago by a Jorogumo; a giant, female spider that can take the shape of seductive women. The monster assumed Akari’s form and has been using her refuge as a way to lazily feed upon the travelers who arrive, thanks to its good reputation.

She poisoned the main meal with a slow-acting agent and has now invited her small-spider children to partake of THEIR meal, as well.

If you explore the spider-tunnels to their end, you’ll find egg chambers filled with bodies encased in cocoons. Among them is the corpse of a woman with long, white hair wearing a gold hairpiece and clutching an ivory serving spoon. The spoon is blessed, and makes food cooked with it tastier; restoring extra health when consumed.

Product Information
File Size:
147.47 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.
