The Techno-Magic of Bast -A Micro-Sourcebook for the Otherverse America Campaign Setting


Some of the most advanced technology of the neo-pagan Covenant can barely be recognized as technology. Especially among the Bastian faction of the Covenant, superstition and ancient magical rituals, empowered by bleeding edge Psi-tech, work in conjunction with more conventional technology to solve the 22nd Century’s many crisis.

The new techno-magical artifacts described below are common at every level of Bastian culture- they are found in homes, in school rooms, in dormitories and corporate offices, as well as being carried into battle by heroic Bastian special operations troops. Most of these new items are hand crafted by specially trained artisans who have mastered a unique set of Object Philosophies, based upon the magic of ancient Egypt.

The Bastian community has a great respect for craftsmen and artists, and producing fine ritual objects capable of accepting psi-based enchantments is as much an act of devotion to Bast as it is a practical occupation. Bastians believe their culture of art, learning and fine craftsmanship is one of the critical differences between Pagan and Christian- Bastians create items of as great and enduring beauty as the pyramids, while Christians build cheap stripmalls and prefab toys that fall apart after a few weeks use.

Crafting mekhtets is one more way to show the superiority of Bastian culture, and is practiced enthusiastically by any Bastian with a talent for Philosophies.

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.
