Uresia: Lore and Curiosities (Free)

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Multiple File Formats
$0.00

In addition to the core worldbook for Uresia: Grave of Heaven (and its commercial supplements, like Caravel), Cumberland Games has produced a sizeable library of free supplementary files. Uresia: Lore & Curiosities collects some of the best pre-OBS creations (2001-2016) into a single catalogue item. It includes the following:

  • Spider Meat: Giant spiders, mercantile espionage, celebrity chefs and courtly romance collide in this glance at the Boru blacklands and some strange characters you might meet there.
  • Uresia Summer Short-Fiction Anthology: Twenty-one works of fantasy short fiction set in heaven's grave, by Uresia fans all over the world.
  • Uresia Winter Anthology: Another collection of fan-created work, this time straight-up gaming articles to contrast with the summer's story focus.
  • Temphis Freeware Fonts: Seven different rune fonts, each presenting the runes used in Uresia in a different style, these are free supplemental fonts to the commercial Temphis Runes set (including obscure promotional styles difficult to find elsewhere).
  • Uresia First-Edition Maps: A complete set of the original monochrome maps from the Guardians of Order Uresia books, preserved for long-time fans (or as a curiosity for newcomers who just enjoy fantasy maps).
  • Cast From Paradise: a brief glimpse at the history of Shadow River, from an unusual perspective: patrons who've been banned from Nectar's Garden, the city's beloved Elvish brothel.
  • Scott's Landing: it's kind of an article about the titular town (down the river from Rogan's Heath), kind of an article about kick-butt magical chimney sweeps, kind of an article about Prince Yoma, kind of an article about Rinden nobility and the stains of the Koval War, and kind of an article about a disease that drives Slimes insane. But the map is a map of Scott's Landing, so let's call it that.
  • Uresia Arcana: A set of map-symbol and decorative fonts from the earliest days of Uresian cartography; use them to create Uresia-style maps and graphics for your campaign! Includes fonty versions of the islands, Shadow River, the Rogan's Heath buildings and more.

If you're new to Uresia, this is a ... pretty weird way to start, but weird and Uresia get along. If you're a long-time fan, this is a handy way to have access on this site to things previously scattered in archives across the history of the setting's online presence. Either way, snag and enjoy; they're all free. Watch the Cumberland Games space on this site for more Uresia material on the way!

Format
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.
