Gethaena Underearth Emer


A classic Shadow World sourcebook

Vast caverns thread the earth beneath the continent of Emer. One of these natural vaults contains a realm of bronze sands and silver grasses lit by a magical sky-roof of brass. Six immortal, evil lords - the Ishru - reside in castles overlooking the deserts and the steppe. They vie among themselves for supremacy, unaware that their holdings may all be destroyed by events set in motion millennia in the past.

Long, long ago, one of the fallen great - a Worldslayer - fashioned Gethaena under the wastelands of central Uj. The vast lava dome housed her demon armies. The hordes were to be unleashed only when her deluded foes foresaw victory.

Gethaena's creator and all her schemes have been forgotten by history - yet her legacy lives on. Within the crucible of the underearth realm, an ancient people struggles amidst the atrocities committed by the Ishru. One man plans to loose these fiendish lords on Kulthea's surface, while all others seek their destruction.

Treachery, rebellion, and the chances of war challenge adventurers in Gethaena!

Gethaena, Underearth Emer contains:

  • A complete campaign involving seven linked scenarios that send adventurers into the perilous heart of Gethaena's enduring mysteries
  • Details on the Ishru, the immortal fiends who rule the Underearth Realm
  • A history of the ancient conflict between the dark Ishru and their neighbors, the mortal Dain Saedhu
  • Legends from the birth of the world.
  • Flora, fauna and beasts unique to the Underearth Realm, including the savage gleamtiger, soporific sorrow mold and the bloodthirsty Nuld - minions of the Ishru
  • Politics and power: who pulls whose strings and the web of intrigue that enmeshes all - the rulers and the ruled
  • Maps and layouts for all adventure sites
  • Complete statistics for all NPCs, monsters, artifacts and poisons
  • New spell lists for the Ishru and those foolish enough to study under these cruel lords.

This book on Gethaena is a great book that hasn't been revised. Image quality is good but some pages that were copied appear a little crooked but still very useable. A great adventure book if your characters have been travelling the surface of Kulthea [...]

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.
