Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library


The mysterious disappearance of two prominent faculty members of Hearthglow Academy led to the sealing of the school library’s Eastern Wing.

Twenty years later a group of students is sent inside, and what they discover will change the course of history.

This book contains an introductory adventure for a party of 1st to 3rd level characters for the 5th edition of the World’s Most Popular Roleplaying Game in three parts, and an extensive appendix describing wondrous tomes and volumes that could be found on the shelves of this, or any magical library.

I purchased this title and it shows in my library, but for some reason, when I come to this page it's not marked as previously purchased. I'm able to download it through my library and if I add it to my cart it warns me that I already own it, but very odd that it's not showing as already purchased. I checked other titles I own and they are fine...

It's working properly now. Not sure why it took longer than normal to update.

Question: I'm confused about the pricing. If $9.98 (the crossed out price) is the price of the pdf, how does 25% off equate to $19.95?

Some kind of error--will let DriveThru know about the mistake immediately.

This book looks great!
I hope to eventually get the copy I paid for through Kickstarter nearly a year ago.

If you're talking about the print edition, the pandemic had a pretty serious effect on that! But the printer has now ramped up production, and the proofs should be going to print shortly. If you're talking about the PDF version, that went out a long time ago--definitely let the folks at AAE know about it, and they should be able to remedy the situation. Thanks for the support!

Unfortunately I backed the physical copy, which was already 6 months late when the pandemic hit.
Oh well, live and learn I suppose.

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.
