The Yaurcoan Empire

Watermarked PDF

Know, brave wanderers, that we live in the dawn of a terrible new age. Our great-grandfathers
speak of an age undreamed of, a shining time of plenty, when the wilderness was
not so wild to us and the earth was our mother who provided all things. That was before
drought and famine set each tribe at the throats of its rivals. Before the sorcerer-slavers came
across the salt-foamed sea from Atlantis and stole a generation of our people, or the Sea
Wolves turned the coast into a red tide of blood and slaughter. Before the Shenites and Skadians
came with their new gods and strange ways, and before we knew the fear of Ruskar
war parties. More ominous still are the dark storm clouds gathering on spiritual horizons.
The spirits were once our guides and allies, but now, with the coming of the mists, terrible
beasts that have no place in a sane world stalk through the otherworldly vapors. Our future
is pregnant with dangers unimagined. Stay awhile and sit by the warmth of the fire, for it
is a wise youth who will listen to what an aging warrior has lived to know.
- Unknown Elder

The Mountain Empire!

The Yaurcoan Empire is a land of mystery to most peoples of the Untamed Lands. Lying far to the south, beyond the Anazi Badlands and the sweltering jungles of the Maztlani Empire, the Yaurcoan Empire rules over the great mountains and cloud wrapped valleys of the mighty Andred Mountains. The Yaurcoa have forged the many disparate peoples of these lands into a great empire that stretches throughout the Andreds. Using their great armies to conquer and their skilled craftsmen to build mighty cities and roads, their empire is the equal of the Maztlani Empire, and is only now coming into its own power. While peaceful at first glance, the Empire has recently weathered a brutal civil war, and numerous factions and peoples vie for power in this patchwork of tribes and culture.

This guide details the many peoples, places, and factions of the Yaurcoan Empire, both for heroes traveling these curious and mysterious lands, and GMs creating stories and epics based here.

Inside this 23 page e-book you will find:

  • A detailed look at the regions of the Yaurcoan empire and the people who live there
  • New Edges
  • New equipment
  • A new power
  • New creatures!
  • A Savage Tale to get you started

The Yaurcoan Empire sourcebook is a fantastic resource for Totems of the Dead, especially if you want an Incan themed game. If I can put my historian hat on a for a moment, The Yaurcoan Empire won’t get you through a class on the Inca, as the Empire [...]

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.
