Ultima Forsan - Macabre Ruthenia

Watermarked PDF

From the frozen shores of the White Sea to the opulent khanate of Astrakhan, from the borders of the endless Tartary to the dark woods of Lithuania...
Ultima Forsan: Macabre Ruthenia is a regional gazetteer about Macabre Russia for Ultima Forsan.
Ruthenia is not a country for weak men: Muscovy is on the edge of a civil war, the marauders gather on the east bank of the Volga river, the malevolent Yagas lurk to ensnare travelers, Koschei the Deathless roams the steppes.
And the shadow of Erlik Khan, the God of Death that controls the Golden Horde, falls over the whole region.

Inside Ultima Forsan: Macabre Ruthenia you can find:

  • A gazetteer of Macabre Ruthenia divided by region
  • A new double-page map: Rutenia Macabra
  • History, geography and politics of Ruthenia in the time of the Plague
  • New Edges, weapons and gear for Ruthenian Heroes
  • Legends, rumors, threats and hints for adventure for the Game Master
  • An encounter generator that will allow you to create amazing travel adventures for your Heroes
  • New monsters and enemies

Any chance for a English hard copy release for Macabre Ruthenia? Or is there one someplace that I have missed? Even if a limited print run, I would enjoy getting a copy, since I typically use things that I own a physical copy. Really enjoying my hard copy of the main Ultima Forsan!

Macabre Ruthenia is soon to be published in hard copy too. It should take four or five months...

Thank you for the update Gionata! Around June then. I'll be sure to get a copy around that time. Good to have the present electronic copy to plan/set a Ruthenia campaign's start after Spring. (Just got around to logging into the site today, hence the somewhat late thanks.)

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.
