At the heart of one of the ancient necropolis, a sooty, cracked, sagging network of factory buildings rises from the bones of a long-dead industrial quarter. Here, towering chimneys covered in ash rise like broken pillars of some ancient monument, casting deep solid shadows across the ruin of rubble and human remains.

At the center of the cratered, crumbling quarter, the complex of buildings is slowly being rebuilt. But by whom, no one knows. Wild men from the peripheral regions of the vast ruined city have been driven off, their curiosity sated by laser fire from the metallic sentries that patrol the factory's perimeter. Lone scavs, wrapped in heavy scarves and wearing thick goggles to protect their eyes from the sun, who would otherwise be drawn to any sound disturbing the dead-quiet of the inner city, are staying away, spreading rumors of an army of the ?metal gods? being reborn at the city's heart. Traders, set up in small tent towns on the outskirts of the once-fabulous necropolis, dealing in scrap and baubles found by the scavs who brave the interior regions of the radiated sprawl, are afraid of what these revelations might mean for the future of their fragile way of life? The following is meant to flesh out just one possible adventure location involving rumors and stories of the return of the ?metal gods?. In specific, this encounter area covers a reactivated robot production factory, which in this case has been brought back online by a particularly powerful and charismatic android commander, a survivor of the Final Wars. Revived and reborn, he, his assassin lieutenant and other followers, have gathered a mass of robots, automatons, and simple-minded organic ?thralls? from the ruins to build a new army.

An Army Rises is intended for 4-6 characters of about 7-9th levels. This adventure was previously presented in Metal Gods (first edition).

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.
