The Eleusinian Covenant Preview


The Eleusinian Covenant will the the next big
factional sourcebook for the Otherverse America
campaign setting. The following is a short preview
composed of excepts from the upcoming release.
Hopefully, it whets your appetite for more info about
the futuristic cult of Demeter.

Demeter, the goddess of the grains, of the
harvest, of nature itself, predates the Hellenic
pantheon which adopted her by centuries. Demeter
and Kore's shared story is part of an older myth
cycle, the Eleusinian Mysteries. These Mysteries
have been reinterpreted and given new passion by
22nd Century America's Choicer Covenant. The
Eleusinian Mysteries are the unifying force that binds
the Covenant together. The spiritual unity the once
forgotten mysteries provided the young Covenant
helped it mature from a few scattered neo-pagan
covens into the mightiest military and economic force
in North America.

Demeter's believers have quietly shaped the
Choicer Covenant's unique technology, and are
steering all humanity towards a post-human Singularity
via that same technology. Eleusinian parapsychologists
developed the first of the thought-based
weapons known as Object Philosophies. The
starship C.S.S Lesbos, named for the ancient Greek
community, is at the forefront of human space
exploration and was designed and christened by a
crew initiated in the Eleusinian Mysteries.

The multi-billion Euro construction cost of
Earth's most impressive mega-structure- the Aegean
orbital beanstalk- was bankrolled by Eleusinian
financiers. With the construction of the fourth orbital
elevator off the California coast, Eleusinian engineers
reassert their technological prominence in the wake
of the Abortion War.

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.
