Leagues of Adventure - Globetrotters' Guide to the Ancient World

ZIP File

The Near East is a timeless land, with a heritage stretching back to the dawn of recorded history. The cradle of civilization, it was home of the ancient Babylonians and Sumerians, whose cities and monuments stood proud in an age when Europeans were clubbing each other with stones. The cradle of three great religions, it was the home of the great prophets, whose teachings guide and inspire millions of worshippers to this day. Further east lies India, the jewel in Britain’s crown, and the source of much conflict. For globetrotters desiring adventure and exploration, ancient cities and exotic cultures await. Dominated by three great powers, it is also a covert battleground, the source of much intrigue and subtle maneuvering for colonial supremacy. Welcome to the Near East and India!

This supplement explores the lands of the Near East, presents two new Leagues, contains notes on fabled treasures and the Midas Machine, and provides stats for four sample player characters and 8 henchmen.

This product is fully 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.
