A tale of assassination, murder & terrorism. Can the Globetrotters uncover a terrifying Commonist plot?

As the Thames ices over and the country grinds to a halt, a scientist is found murdered in the north of London, and the globetrotters are called in to investigate the theft of a mysterious device. What they find is a conspiracy that brings the British Empire to the brink of war!

In this adventure, the globetrotters again encounter the mysterious Commonist League, anarchists hell-bent on ushering in revolution through a cataclysmic war, a violent offshoot of the scientific utopian Cosmist League. This time, the globetrotters uncover assassination, murder, and terrorist atrocities reaching to the highest levels of society.

But is everything as it seems? What lies behind the Commonists’ actions, and the disappearance of Nikolai Fyodorov, the mysterious Cosmist leader, in the distant Pamir Mountains? Can the globetrotters solve the mystery before war consumes the Empire?

The Emerald Scarab Conspiracy is the second action-packed scenario in The Great Game campaign. Leagues of Adventure is a Victorian Steampunk setting that is powered by the Ubiquity ruleset.

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.
