Leagues of Adventure - Globetrotters' Guide to the Old World

ZIP File

European colonialism stretches back to the days of the Roman Republic, though its modern history begins with the voyages of the great 15th century Portuguese and Spanish navigators. Today, many of the European powers have colonies across the globe. Some, like France, Germany, and Great Britain, are on the ascent, while the superpowers of old, Portugal and Spain, are waning. Aside from occasional clashes with the Ottoman Empire, which still holds parts of southeastern Europe in its ailing grip, the continent appears to be at peace. Beneath the surface of political calm, though, the twin currents of colonial ambition and avarice are swirling and gaining strength. It may not be known to the common man, but those in positions of power sense war is coming.

This supplement contains two new Leagues, information and adventure seeds on countries the length and breadth of Europe, three sample characters, and eight sample henchmen.

This product is compatible with the Hollow Earth Expedition RPG.

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.
