"Will, come on," Keeper Emmerson called back. "You're falling behind. Nightfall will be here in two hours -- we need to be at Base Camp by that time."

Groaning, Will picked up his pack. "Coming." He hurried along the narrow path up the barren gradient. When he reached the top, he was stunned to discover an awe-aspiring sight. The opposite slope below him was strewn with ground-covering vegetation. Beyond, thousands of euimours were flying in loose formation over a shallow sea, diving for fish and swarming jellies under the delicately hued evening sky. Looking west, his eyes could barely inscribe an imaginary arc from the scattered chain of islands that disappeared into a glowing, white squall formation forming over the foaming sea.

"Welcome to Impact Crater 001, intern," Keeper Emmerson stated plainly, a familiar smile creasing her face. "This is where Paradise Eden ended. Maybe, with a lot of work, we can usher in a new and better beginning." Emmerson gestured toward the trail that continued down toward the caldera sea below. "Come on," she continued, still smiling. "The adventure is just beginning."

Eden: a planet where neither needs nor desires seemed to go unsatisfied, without conflict, in blissful, cooperative anarchy. Unfortunately, the Fates had a different future in mind: following an out-of-control experiment over a hundred fifty years ago, Eden was devastated by a series of massive cometary impacts. Now, the survivors of the Apocalypse are struggling atop the ashes of an ecologically damaged world while the anarchy of their past has given way to warring kingdoms and privateer consortiums. Conflicts over now scarce resources have created numerous battlefields; doom cults abound; and a strained confederacy of kingdoms is nearing the brink of a global civil war as politicians and princes, seeking to protect their political assets, grasp toward hope for a future.

Life on Eden is the first sourcebook to detail the farthest of humanity's colony worlds, Eden. Within these covers, you will find:

  • An extensive examination of Eden's solar system and planetary characteristics;
  • A complete history of the Edenite colony;
  • Source material on the Gan Eden Confederacy and the Privateer Consortiums;
  • Extensive information on the cultures and habits found throughout Edenite society;
  • Tips and tools for creating roleplaying campaigns on Eden;
  • Game statistics for Edenite character archtypes, Fauna, Flora and important NPCs.

Scanned image
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.
