Web of Tears


Yiyia watched as the undead shambled through the broken gates of her soon to be defeated enemies. Long had she plotted and planed for this day, her dark heart pounding with the pent up joy she was having at hearing the screams of the dying on the other side of the high wall. Her house had finally crushed their greatest rivals, and now nothing, no one, stood in their way of taking complete control of the city. A dark elf warrior casually walked up to her and bowed, as was custom among her people. A lower caste member of the dark race must always pay nominal respect to those of higher rank and birth. High born over lowborn, nobles over all others, females over males. That was the law of the Dark Elves, that was the way of the people of the Spider Queen.

This is the game of Web of Tears, a game of politics, intrigue, struggle and conquest. Web of Tears allows players to take control of a Dark Elf noble house, where they then must compete with other Dark Elf houses as each tries to achieve multiple victory conditions and goals. Can you train your nobles to their ultimate in skill, or will you need to amass a great army of slaves and skilled warriors. Maybe you will need to work the political side of the social order and have yourself proclaimed the queen of the city.

Web of Tears uses a unique system of influence peddling, intrigue, political plotting and all out war to allow players to interact in the nastiest of ways.

Can you out smart, out fight and out survive your foes?

Web of Tears comes with over 200 cards, counters and playing aids, which will allow up to six players to dish out terrible and nasty political battles while they all try to achive their goals of ruling the Dark Elf city itself.

This game sounded pretty cool to me, but then I saw 200 cards... any chance of this becoming available as a POD?

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.
