         Glimpse the Beyond is a Role-Playing Game in which players assume the roles of Magi, rare individuals who study the arcane arts in an attempt to understand and possibly control that which Should Not Be. One player, called the Guide, crafts a story set in this world, using the rules in the Glimpse the Beyond corebook (available at http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/109234/Glimpse-the-Beyond)

Dreams of the Old Ones is a unique setting expansion for Glimpse the Beyond, which examines options for a darker, more terrifying version of the world. In Dreams of the Old Ones, the supernatural has burst forth from the shadows and taken center stage across the globe. Civilization as we know it in the 21st Century has all but collapsed, and the Magi, once hidden from humanity, have begun to pursue their agendas openly, no longer concerned with keeping their fellow humans in the dark about the truth.

Dreams of the Old Ones examines how these various changes have reshaped the Earth socially, politically and physically. The rules and materials herein are designed to explore a dark, broken nightmare of a world, far removed from the “world outside your window” presented in the core rulebook. This post-apocalyptic dystopia is painted in broad strokes, leaving many of the specific details up to the Guide to determine. New setting elements and systems will be introduced which have been designed with the shattered world of Dreams of the Old Ones in mind. Having said that, some Guides may wish to cherry pick certain elements from this book for use in a standard Glimpse the Beyond campaign, while ignoring other elements. Such is the prerogative of the individual Guide. It’s your game. Keep what you like and discard the rest.   

Dreams of the Old Ones includes:

  • Alternate Character Creation Rules: an expanded rule set that allows players to draw up mundane humans, humans who have been mutated by chaotic magickal energies and supernatural creatures as playable characters.
  • New Flaws and Skills: flaws and skills specifically designed for use in the Dreams of the Old Ones setting.
  • Alternate Ritual Magick Rules: the Dreams of the Old Ones setting is a magick-rich, chaotic environment. As such, Ritual Magick works a bit differently than in the core setting. 
  • Locations: a brief overview of the city of Chicago and the village of Moundsville, as they are in the post-apocalyptic world of Dreams of the Old Ones.

Dreams of the Old Ones was written and developed by Travis Legge.

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.
