Paths of Honor

"Fear not death, for the hour of your doom is set, and no one can escape it".
- Völsunga Saga

Paths of Honour presents new options for players who believe in the Viking maxim: “It is better to stand and fight. If you run, you'll only die tired". Here the focus is on mad, bad and dangerous-to-know: driven heroes for whom living a long, prosperous life is pointless if they don’t build a reputation in the process.

The paths described in this supplement represent the pinnacle of Norse might and mayhem. Each offers a fast track to renown and acclaim—and a high likelihood of an early grave. They include veterans who laugh in the face of certain death, athletes who risk life and limb in brutal gladiatorial sports, and traditionalists who hew to the old ways in defiance of modernity. Rather than pick up a rifle, these stalwarts rely on sticks, kicks, flags, explosives, cavalry charges and even harsh words to make their mark. As long as they remain true to their calling, they can expect to be fêted and idolized wherever they roam. More importantly, their deeds will be talked about long after they are gone, immortalised on runestones and in sagas.

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.
