Post-Apocalyptic Dispatch (#2): Necropolis Diaries

ZIP File

This article marks the first in a series that will look at the various cryptic locations and struggling communities situated among the ruins of Los Angeles, better known simply as the ?Necropolis? by the inhabitants of the Twisted Earth. A broader overlook of the Necropolis is given in the Darwin's World 2nd Edition rulebook. These articles will attempt to focus on a specific adventure location, monster lair, or a community clinging to survival among the ruins.

Note: The details of this article are based on the outcome of a play by e-mail game run in 2000 set in the Twisted Earth setting of Darwin's World.

Originally titled ?Necropolis?, this game pitted a group of players against one another in a grueling competition to take several impoverished groups of survivors and build viable communities among the burnt-out and radiated ruins of Los Angeles.However, the locations portrayed here aren?t necessarily limited to Los Angeles; with only a little modification you can port the locations and monsters to virtually any post-apocalyptic environment.

When I bought this, it was called Modern Dispatch #3. It's been repackaged as PA Dispatch #2. The bulk of this is fiction, of a sort, about the brutal career and final comeuppance of a horde of Raiders (like the bad guys from Mad Max 1-2). The l [...]

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.
