You came all this way, to a land you once spurned, just to find me—to know my wisdom—and I say to you it begins with a question: What is a pillar, truly?

You know the word, certainly, think you apprehend its meaning, but this is the lesson that defies learning… the page that eludes the seeking scribe.

What the quill can never see is the essential truth, the immutable design that in itself strips the word of all meaning, whatever its definition. If you would answer my question by reaching for the word, you would already be in the wrong. You cannot define the pillar, though in the fullness of time, you might come to know it.

If you would understand the pillar, look to its source. There lies its purpose.

And I am the hand that sets the pillar, the pillar that sets the hand.

My pillar is the lathe of Fate.

— Seb-Hetchet, the White Jackal

This book includes:

  • Contextualized discussion of the history and inner workings of the Federal City from the mummy point of view, including the rise of the powerful meret known as the First Chorus and a complete overview of Washington D.C.’s geography and internal currents, political and supernatural alike.
  • An array of non-player characters fully integrated into the nome, including both the Arisen who call Washington D.C. home and a few of the mortals who do their secret bidding, willingly or otherwise
  • "The Great Hunt" — a complete Mummy story that Storytellers can run alone or as the prelude to a three-part series called The Avarice Chronicle

Note on the Print Editions: Standard Color uses a thinner paper stock than Premium Color, basically the same paper as the Black & White books. This usually means the colors are less vivid, but it also means the price drops a bit per page in the production process. Examples of pages: Premium Color vs. Standard Color.

A mix of cool ideas for DC. The SAS adventure is mediocre and probably not a great way to introduce Mummy as a game (i.e. monster hunting for someone else does really fit the themes). However, this book still doesn't help me decide what a Mummy [...]

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.
