Watermarked PDF + Hardcover, B&W Book

While vacationers revel in the debauchery of the Bourbon Quarter, danger lurks in the shadows.

They say it can only get better for me here.  Newport is a bustling city that, through planning, has managed to keep the smoke stacks on the edge of the city.  The city has a well-developed trolley system that allows fast, pollution-free travel throughout the city.  Unemployment is at an all-time low.  It is a town where it seems like everyone is partying in the streets for some festival or another.  It is a city that revels is the display of magic for entertainment.  However, this is all a public show.  Kept from the headlines are tent cities filled with the poor, walkers leaving their graves, and the increased unexplained deaths and disappearances.  Life in a house here is more dangerous that life on the streets in New Arcadia. 


Shadows Over Newport is a Neo-Victorian Gothic Horror supplement for SteamCraft, although it is written generically so as to be useable as a supplement for any game system.  This book contains everything needed to run a steampunk horror adventure. 


In Shadows Over Newport you will find:


  • The history of Newport and the surrounding area. 
  • An overview of life in the metropolis detailing what it is like to live in the city.  This includes information of festivals, occupations, healthcare, government, police, and travel.
  • Adventure hooks and information about the true horror lurking in the shadows.
  • Details of each section of the city, each with this own flavor. 
  • Details of Guilds, Gangs, and Corporations involved in the city. 
  • New Items, Spells, and Monsters.
  • Expanded rules for weapon creation.
  • Introduces the optional 3d10 system for SteamCraft.

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.
