Description:

The staging of the 2004 Olympic Games has brought a time of great potential for Greece; not only did it provide valuable tourism, but it also marked the return of the world's greatest athletic contest to its country of origin. To help continue this spirit of cooperation, the Greek government has organized other gala events that share a similar spirit of peace.

One such event is a conference of the world's most influential archaeologists, representatives of the most prestigious universities, museums and private institutions from around the globe. In addition to showing off the country's rich archaeological sites, the conference is also a chance to facilitate negotiations to return a number of ancient Greek artifacts that were removed by agents of other countries. Due in part to the recent Olympic Games, the event is being conducted with a spirit of cooperation and mutual celebration.

Indeed, the two events have combined to facilitate a most fortuitous occurrence. As part of the preparation that was undertaken for the influx of tourists, the Greek government had authorized an almost unprecedented level of construction and similar development. One such project, under the supervision of a local construction contractor named Alexos Konstantinos, uncovered a series of tunnels beneath the Akropolis. Previously unknown, these tunnels could yield a wealth of new information regarding that famed landmark. Konstantinos promptly contacted Geoffrey Turner, a Candadian engineer and historian, and the two have begun an investigation of the tunnels in haste, with the hopes that some of the discoveries made their might be publicized as a culmination to the archaeological conference.

Nemesis is an adventure for use in the Treasure Hunter campaign setting, in conjunction with the D20 Modern RPG. It is intended for a party of roughly six third-level characters. It is recommended, but not required, that this adventure be played after the events of QA-01 ?The Mystery and the Tomb? and QA-02 ?Spoils of War.?

A challenging adventure set mostly around the Parthenon and its monuments, based around skills and some rather difficult puzzles, though quick action and combat skill will very much help in getting a good outcome from the scenario. Groups who haven't [...]

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.
