Adrift on the River of Dream


"In those days we were young and proud; we thought we could learn all there was to know of the River and its mysteries. Looking back, I cannot imagine how we could have been so foolish, for the River is vast and deep. No man may find all of its secrets, and the price for the few that we did catch was far higher than I wanted to pay.

"Come now, follow this path and find the truth for yourself. You will see a world gone mad with terror and brutality, and the whimpering end of all things. But, if you persevere to the end, you may also see the dawning of hope, and the birth of what must be. Now is the time of troubles, and now is the time of heroes."

-- Words of Thomas, The Knight of Stars

Adrift on the River of Dream is the core sourcebook of spirituality, magic and dream for Tribe 8. Inside, Weavers and Players alike will find all the information they need to run spiritual and mystical campaigns, as well as new rules and extensive information on Synthesis, Sundering, Dreaming, Technosmithing, Ritual, Spirits and the River of Dream. Adrift of the River of Dream includes:

  • Extensive guidelines for using, weaving and understanding Synthesis;
  • A cosmography of the River of Dream, including the various Orbs and Spheres;
  • Rules and guidelines for making rituals, Dreaming and Spirits a major part of a cycle;
  • New information on Guides, Heartstones and the interaction of the Z'bri and the Great Architecture;
  • Many new groups and locations;
  • Eight new Aspects, two new Technosmithing formulae, a dozen new rituals and three new Sundering Aspects;
  • New spiritually-oriented Perks and Flaws.

Adrift is the Fourth Interlude in the Conquest story arc.

Note: Unfortunately, the name of one of the authors was left out of the manuscript -- Moyra Turkington was a valuable member of the writing team, and we tender our outmost apologies for the error.

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.
