Casket of Fays #10 – a Dragon Warriors RPG fanzine


The tenth issue of Casket of Fays is here. While we were bringing this issue together, the great Russ Nicholson passed from this mortal vale. We wanted to celebrate his life and work somehow, so leading with a cover by him, we have:

A Tribute to Russ Nicholson by Dave Morris. A heartfelt piece about Russ by Dave, accompanied by a favourite illustration, Taymora Wharf.

We continue with:

Ring of True Seeing by Chris Jolliffe, a new magical item that parts the veil of illusion.

FAQs for Dragon Warriors (Part 2), the serialisation of Dave Morris's Q&A continues.

Talking with Damian, an interview with prolific gamer and Dragon Warrior, Damian May.

Hudristania by Paul Partington, an excerpt from A Brief History of Hudristania’ by Marek Groza, detailing a lesser visited corner of Legend.

Ferryman by Chris Jolliffe, meeting a fellow whose toll will only allow you to pass one way.

The Grimoire of Albus Gwydion by Chris Jolliffe, five new spells that could prove the difference between life and death.

Kenshi by Wayne Imlach, a modification to the Knight profession, giving a more agile swordsman, able to hold their own even when outnumbered.

The Dreamer of the Dunes by Andrew Wright, a two-page visual treat, revisiting a creature from the Golden Dragon books, lurking beneath the sands and hungry to meet you.

Stealing the Enchanted Blade by Mark Dowson, a programmed adventure, answering the question whether YOU can steal the enchanted blade.

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.
