Gateway to the Underworld

DramaScape Fantasy Volume 90

This Product is a 40 x 40 inch, full color battlemap of a Gateway to the Underworld.

The Product comes with Square, Hex and No Overlay and the Virtual Tabletop Map (VTT).

“The gateway to the underworld is in the hollowed out belly of that stone fire titan statue over the bridge. You can only reach the fire titan by traversing the bridge between life and death and crossing over the river of fire. Only a desperate fool would go to the underworld and yet it calls many who would save their loved ones from eternal torment. The ante is one gold coin, the gamble is your life and eternal soul, and so now what is the wager?”—Tollmaster Haros

 Gateway to the Underworld is a single level exterior map with a west and east side of volcanic rock bisected by a river of fire. The river of fire is spanned by a bridge of stone and brick lined with spikes along its railings. The bridge leads to a path that ends at a hollowed out statue’s belly which has a cave inside that seems to lead inside the volcano or somewhere else.

 Gateway to the Underworld is intended for use in fantasy or horror games. It could also be an interesting modern pulp map of an archeological ruin next to a volcano with a slow magma flow.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Guardian of the Gateway: The group seeks to revive a fallen member of the party and has come to the gateway of the underworld to parlay with Tollmaster Haros for passage. He demands their most expensive coin (usually gold) as a toll for passage over the bridge between life and death. After he is paid, he lets the group cross the bridge, but at the halfway point in crossing the bridge, a sentinel fire titan statue roars to life. The statue holds a shattered sword that ignites into a blade of fire as the statue’s other hand pulls itself out of the ground. The statue towers over the group, blocking their path to the gateway to the underworld. If they want to get to the underworld, they must first defeat the guardian of the gateway.

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.
