Dark Harvest: Resistance

Suggested Price $16.99

Resistance is the first full supplement for the critically acclaimed RPG Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein. Building on what has been described as “…without a doubt the best world description I have ever seen…” (Brian Fitzgerald, Game Knight Reviews*) the supplement focuses on the struggle between Victor Frankenstein’s Promethean authorities and the Creature’s Resistance fighters, as well as covering many other aspects of life within Promethea. Included are:

  • A full items and equipment listing using 1910’s monetary values
  • New and clarified rules and mechanics
  • New NPCs, organisations, and Augmentations
  • Detailed maps of military installations
  • A full scenario with campaign suggestions
  • Six page intro comic
  • Detail on subjects ranging from the Resistance and the Promethean Military Forces, to the Suffragette movement in Promethea and the thriving black market; from escaping the country to how both the authorities and the Resistance try to stop that happening; from passive resistance by university staff to the knife in the dark arranged by a dark cabal misinterpreting Frankenstein’s wishes.
  • Three new short stories by Iain Lowson, adding yet more flavour and detail to the Dark Harvest setting.

Resistance covers everything from merciless high politics in Victor Frankenstein’s inner circle of advisors, to the desperate fight for life and liberty in the mud and darkness between loyal soldiers from both sides; and looming over all, the relentless Dark Harvest continues…


Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein is a detailed, fascinating game setting, a terrifyingly plausible alternative history, and a fiction anthology, a gothic horror fantasy that will appeal to gamers and the general public alike. 

Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein uses a version of the Heresy Engine system and is fully compatible with Victoriana 2nd Edition. However, the core book is a standalone game.

WHAT WORKS: Again, another book just jam packed full of material. It does a great job of showing the dark side of the Resistance and the noble intentions of Frankenstein and his military, establishing the shades of grey world. More augmentations are al [...]

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.
