To The Dragon Apeiron


Once, it is said, the Dragon Apeiron rained fire and terror over Kos and the lands around it. Once, but no longer, and so long ago it is in the realm of fables. It is said that the wisest of the wise, the magos, the priests, struck with it a bargain. It waited in its lair in the rocky pinnacle-isle of Stongyli in the Karpathian Sea, and was sent such tribute as adventurers could only dream of. But this last not often, once per century only. 

Yet the last time the tribute was sent some decades ago, to the little island eight miles south of the coastal Koan village of Kardemena, for the first time the dragon Apeiron was absent. Gone after seeming aeons, the oracles say, and none could divine where ... 

“To the Dragon Apeiron” is a self-standing swords-and-sorcery fantasy short story by acclaimed fantasy artist Lissanne Lake that takes place in the Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting, a Dark Ages fantasy milieu set in the Mediterranean and the lands surrounding it. A century after the old world was plunged into chaos, reawakening magic and all form of ancient races and monsters, the worshippers of Gods and Titans battle each other, nations struggle to survive and flourish, and adventurers descend into the ruins in search of wealth and forgotten knowledge.

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.
