Finsterland - Adventure in a World of Magic and Technology

Watermarked PDF

Finsterland is a steampunk fantasy roleplaying game from Austria

The old Emperor is dead. The new one is young and inexperienced. The Electors long for power. Civil war has ravaged Finsterland. The common people cling to the old ways, but scientific progress is fast advancing. The corset of social convention is weakening and new ways of life appear. Giant airships and the factories' smoke fill darken the skies.
Mighty sorcerors, greedy politicians and cunning schemers - every fraction tries to carve out its piece of the wounded body that is the continent. In the darkness, ancient evil stirs. These turbulent times need heroes!

Play as the dramatic hussar, the seasoned veteran, the brilliant detective or the masterful thief. Be an enigmatic magician, a charming dilettante, a talented engineer, a dashing bandit or a bizarre machinator!

Create your character and experience epic adventures!

Finsterland is a role-playing game for at least three players,
ages 16 and up.  This book contains all the rules and world
background required to start immediately.

Do you have any plans to release this game on POD through drivethrurpg? And if you do approximately when will you release it?

Since Drivethru requires the books to be in US-formats (such as Letter), this will take some adaptation. However, if you are in Germany, I can send you a printed version directly and I can also give you an autograph, if you like.
Just send me an e-mail to and we can work something out.

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.
