In honor of the new upcoming release from Columbia Games, for HârnWorld, Inns of Harn. Innkeepers, an article detailing the workings of inns and taverns is avaialble for free for a limited time. 

Throughout western Lythia, the Innkeepers' Guild has a monopoly over the operation of inns and taverns. The masters of this guild are mostly well-respected and influential guildsmen, partly because of the high profile of their establishments in a community, and not least because of the covert links between some masters and the Lia Kavair.

Inns & Taverns
There are two levels of guild franchise: inns and taverns. The latter should not offer accommodation or serve hot meals, but these distinctions are not always obvious in practice. Anyone can report violations of restrictions to guild authorities. The local guildmaster has wide disciplinary powers. He can summon franchise holders to his court, levy fines, and revoke franchises.

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.
