Try downloading it again? Nobody else has this problem, and I do not on multiple devices. I will investigate if the issue persists, please let me know.

Very interesting. Is this the case for you as well GB? Is this a Mac issue?

Can you open it in the default Mac PDF viewer which is NOT Adobe?

I have a VERY old mac that used to give me trouble viewing the parchment texture. I think that was fixed in a newer OS X version.

What version of OS X are you guys using?

Yep it is pretty old. Snow Leopard. Adobe was fully updated. I will try to check out further tomorrow.

It's probably something Apple related. I downloaded this long ago on PC, but just now tried on my iPhone (7+ with Safari).

Safari completely locks up trying to read it.

Oddly, it may not be your choice for parchment though, your Unrest quest works fine.

Anything unique to this file?

Multiple pages is all I can think of. The parchment was a problem in the past because of the transparency of the darker spots. Previous versions of Apple would just ignore these and render the boring solid color. 10x instances of it may be too much for Apple? Surprised to hear of the problem in Adobe on Apple though.

I use linux and android. And I can easily test windows.

In can regenerate these with just the first pages, then one page per quest. If there is a specific issue beyond cumulative complexity, then we will find it that way.

Maybe it is something with cumulative pages, though usually it will load a page at a time, loading additional pages as I scroll into them.

However, when I look closely at the Unrest Quest on my iPhone and iPad the parchment is very.....bland, it just looks anemic compared to the other quests that use raster parchment images. Perhaps that is only a side effect of the Apple issue that is causing this problem. I'll have to load it up on Windows tonight to see if it looks better. If so, then it must be a longstanding compatibility issue of some sort.

My parchment is a bit bland, but you will also note that the file size for Unrest is only 400k (most of that is the map). Using the raster doubles the size and stupid PDF generators are not smart enough to only encode the same texture once.

I suppose a raster would fix this AND perhaps the compatibilty. I will post an update... tomorrow?
