New Orcs on the Block players Guide

Suggested Price $0.50

Players Guide to accompany the mini adventure New Orc on the Block, companion to the Orcs Strong Together product. This guide includes backgrounds, Meravon Gazetteer, and candidate information.

This adventure is designed to supplement an ongoing campaign set on the Isle of Kortos. It is composed of 5 blocks that take place at 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th levels. The PCs will influence Axeside’s growth and shape it into the orc utopia we deserve. Each has unique concerns in the lead up to reelection of Meravon’s Council seats, with the potential to open up new player options. The fight for the orc has started; how will you respond?

Welcome to Meravon, the lumber capital of Kortos, where orc lumberjacks settled and they are fighting for better representation with lumber concerns and the recognition of their neighborhood Axeside becoming a separate district. Prejudice against orcs remains and branching out beyond the felling of trees is being met with resistance. Lumber concerns are upset about losing a cheap source of labor, the druids are worried about the local forests, and there is something strange about this recent string of vandalism.

The citizens of Axeside wanted to be ruled by committee instead of might? Well, these opposing factions are ready to fight. And so are you.

I am running Abomination Vaults and this document is priceless just for the Meravon statblock and map. I hope that the New Orcs AP will include maps that can be used without map markers, I would buy it just for that and more information on the location.

While my players are busy cleaning AV, I will probably buy the AP and just let them meet the Orc party from Axeside and have good time sharing their stories, even as DMNPCs playing that campaign behind the scene.

We'll include it in the full product, but here's the label-less map:

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.
