Lucien's Guide to the Grand Stair (Diceless)


Come immerse yourself in the Lore of the Grand Stair.

Delve the secrets of the Lords of Gossamer & Shadow through the correspondence of Lucien, Lord of the Grand Stair, as he discusses evocative Expanses such as the Rickety Stair and the Grey Tower, and gain even more knowledge about his personal domain the Academy of Arbanes.

Unearth the advanced capabilities of Wardens of the Grand Stair, and finally find out about Lucien’s ally and previously unknown Gossamer Lord: Gretchen Shadrach, the Unshaken Shield.

Brought you by bestselling and critically acclaimed game-designer Rob Donoghue (Fate Core, Dresden Files Rpg, Spirit of the Century) Lucien’s Guide to the Grand Stair is a perfect addition to Lords of Gossamer & Shadow (Diceless).

An review This pdf is 26 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 24 pages, so let's take a look! I LOVED Lords of Gossamer and Shadows - its imagery of this vast staircase with doors to infinite [...]

This is the first material to come out for Rite Publishing's new RPG line, The Lords of Gossamer and Shadow written by Jason Durall. It was created as a stretch goal to the final kickstarter for the game and was released early in January for sale as [...]

This is a couple dozen pages' worth of commentary on the Grand Stair, the liminal space that links worlds in the setting. The bulk of it is the correspondence and lecture notes of a particularly talented traveler and observer. Rob Donoghue does a good [...]

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.
