Mists of Akuma is an eastern fantasy noir steampunk campaign setting for D&D 5th Edition, funding on Kickstarter RIGHT NOW!

Brave the lands of Soburin and earn your place as a master of one of the great clans, oust an oni warlord to carve out your own fiefdom, turn a fortune from the many heretical technology black markets, or make your name a thing to be feared by besting the world’s greatest swordsmen!


In this first FREE PDF sample for the Mists of Akuma Kickstarter, you’ll find:

  • Utsukushi’s Ire, a short story about one samurai’s quest for revenge

  • The campaign setting’s dreaded fell fog and the new Misted condition

  • A new attribute emblematic of Mists of Akuma: Haitoku (“fall from virtue”)

  • The Ronin, Roustabout, Shinobi, and Yamabushi character backgrounds

  • Three subraces for humans in Mists of Akuma: Ceramian, Ropaeo, and Soburi

  • Shikome, the hobgoblin player race of Mists of Akuma (along with the Blessed and Cursed subraces)

  • The Tanuki player race (and its subraces, Forest and Urban) for players looking to be mischievous

  • Samurai Sacred Oath, a new class option for paladins looking to instill great ancestral power

  • Wu-Jen Warlocks and one of the dark patrons of nature: Natsu t, consumer of summer

  • A full page map of the continent of Soburin by cartographer Michael McCarthy


If you like the Mists of Akuma: Primer, stop by the Kickstarter page to get Imperial Dragons, Martial Arts Stances, and Tsukumogami, or keep your eyes peeled for them to appear here throughout the month of May!

The ideas and tropes of the game and setting are great, but sadly the primer is hard to read, weirdly laid out with inconsistent fonts and a variety of what appears to be clip art. Some may love this, but I found it sadly messy. However, its a great id [...]

Format

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.
