The Hive of Corruption


Fire from the Sky!

Nearly a month ago, a red spike appeared overhead in the night sky. As it drew closer, portents and omens danced across the region. Each night the spike grew as furtive viewers watched in awe and trepidation. Suddenly, it split into five parts, and then, now some three weeks ago, a fragment of star stone crashed to the earth, leaving a streak of destruction in its wake. The star stone was not alone, and now a deadly fungus has begun spreading into the surrounding countryside, affecting the beasts and plant life, causing them to grow in enormous proportions.

The group has been selected by the Institute of Magical Arts and Astronomical Examinations in the elven capital of Iadara to travel into the region of Galt and investigate the landing site of the star stone—returning with any relevant information.

The Hive of Corruption is a Pathfinder Second Edition adventure for a party of level 1 characters. Players will advance their characters to level 3 by the end of the adventure.

The adventure is extremely well written, features beautiful artwork, and most importantly, is fun to play. I loved the gradual reveal of the fate of Pickering Road and exploring what came crashing to the ground with the meteor. Highly recommended! [...]

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
