Entering the labyrinth

The Cloud Empress: Year One Adventure Bundle contains five 6 page adventures:

  1. The Seed Vault by Samantha Leigh - One week ago, a group of Farmerlings found the entrance to a massive vault. Within are seeds of plants thought long extinct: ancient grains, juicy vegetables, and medicinal roots. For those with the Molting, the vault may be their last hope, as the only known cure comes from an herb lost to time: the exuvino. 
  2. Pit’s Peak by Alfred Valley - A great piece of nothing lies somewhere in the Weeds—a huge, mysterious hole in the ground known as the Lecktoorn. Some are sent here on pilgrimages, others are drawn here on quests urgent and secretive. Many simply stumble upon the place. And yet, after lumbering days, weeks, through dirt that lacks the decency of sand, just to gaze upon this colossal pit and down into its humbling depths…
  3. Lord of the Goneaway by Joel Hines - In the decaying spires and groves of the Thickwood, rumors leak out of a frozen tomb containing a slumbering psychic possessed of godly power. Now a bloody race rages between a rogue Cloudling squad, an Imago Brood Cult, and a scheming Bodyhopper. Each party wishes to extract this Lord of the Goneaway for service, destruction, or harvest while avoiding the hazards of his ancient cryogenic tomb.
  4. Echoes of Memories by Sebastian YueClones of the Rustbucket’s inhabitants pour forth from a long-decommissioned laboratory. The clones comb the streets in search of their originals so they can destroy them and take their place. What ancient knowledge hides with the clones in the ruins may just be worth the immense risk.
  5. Labyrinth of the Bride by Kienna Shaw The Emperor's collapsed monument has called for a new bride, and the surrounding temple of broken glass has opened its doors for the first time in 10 years. Guests flock to the celebratory banquet to grasp for archaic favor and ancient treasure as the bride awaits her fate in the twisting hallways below.

These are so flavorful and pocket-sized, it is wonderful, and they can easily be dropping into all sorts of far future settings. My only reticence it that the 6-page length of most of them feels just a tad too pocket-sized. Part of me really wishes the [...]

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.
