“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in london all that life can afford.”
—Samuel Johnson

In London one can stroll past grand buildings, marvel at the cultural wonders of the many museums and art galleries, and sample exquisite food at exclusive restaurants. Take a wrong turn, though, and one enters a world of poverty and thievery; a world where human life is cheap and citizens are packed into slums like rats who cannot leave the sinking ship. This Ubiquity-powered guidebook to Victorian London in the 1890s includes…

  • An overview of how London works, including topics such as accommodation, climate, communications, death, entertainment, lighting, policing, and transportation.
  • A tour taking in over 120 locations.
  • Statistics for 39 major historical and literary personages and 20 stock characters.
  • The names of important ambassadors, government official, military leaders, museum and gallery curators, newspaper editors, and religious leaders.
  • Advice on how to run city-based adventures and 19 adventure seeds.
  • Four Leagues of Adventure, six sample player characters, and eight henchmen.

This product is compatible with other Ubiquity-powered RPGs.

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.
