30x20 Battlemap - Abode of the Ratmen


Abode of the Ratmen

The rocks in this area have been carved away overtime by the streams which run through the mountains. Poorly constructed wooden bridges have been made to bridge the gaps between the stony chasms and dreary dying trees and fetid plants cover the ground.

Strange mechanical devices and pipes jut from the rocks and leak bright green toxic liquid and an entrance to a dark cavern lies at the center of this encampment.

Adventure Seed

A remote village has been affected by a plague that leaves its inhabitants with patchy fur and yellow, ridged claws instead of fingernails. Babies are born with pink tails and heads like rodents, only to be killed by their own mothers. Those who have let them live have suffered from vicious attacks, for the children are not just hideous, but mindless and aggressive.

Now, adults are beginning to lose their memories as well, becoming something different and unrecognizable. It starts with hoarding shiny objects and twitching, before quickly escalating to paranoia and rampant aggression. The worst of them burrow into the soil and seem sensitive to light; coming out at night and hunting the remaining villagers for their worthless, yet reflective, possessions. In this way many friends have had to kill those they once knew to survive.

What’s happening? A magical contaminant has been flowing downstream in the water (if your players have drunk any they may start changing). Bandits have created a mine and refinery for this valuable, green substance upstream, and, due to the danger, are using kidnapped prisoners to dig it out of the underground veins.

The prisoners don’t live long and are usually killed in two weeks due to the rapid changes, unbeknownst to the other captives. The bandits lie to the survivors, telling them that those who are gone have been freed to return to their families. Because they are not entirely heartless, everyone must work a shift of two weeks, before they can leave. This, they claim, is why they have a constant influx of new slaves.

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.
