You burn to know the significance of the rise of high Sothis, and now that we have dragged ourselves through the arid fullness of time, I will answer thus:

What is it that reveals itself under the light of a rising star?

When convergence slides its ineffable will into place, and Fate swings but one pole-star wide, high above the contours of creation’s map, what emerges to stand before that celestial radiance? To defiantly utter the words of power etched upon its own naked name?

The truth is rooted in the fact that each star is unique, possessed of its own name and light, just as the name of one man is not the name of another. And the starlight of Sothis is deeply reflective, bathing the eyes of those who gaze up at it in the brilliant tapestry of their own celestial night.

You ask for revelations about Sothis, but you ask them of me.

If you would have answers, you must first know in whose name your starlight shines.

And in that light, high Sothis reveals all.

— Sefet-Qam, the Hallowed Mask

This book includes:

• Comprehensive information on the mundane and supernatural world during each of the three prior Sothic Turns, Mummy’s pivotal eras of historical play — the Cannibal Hymn (2371 BCE), the Mighty Despair (910 BCE), and the Return to Dusk (551 CE).

• A wealth of new material for Storytellers, including characteristics of a Sothic chronicle, features of the latest Sothic Turn, a secret society of the Deathless, a new kind of Utterance, and two new types of story framework — the interwoven chronicle and the parallel chronicle.

• “Pearl of Ascent” — a complete Mummy story that Storytellers can run alone or as the climactic final act in a three-part series called The Avarice Chronicle.

Note on the Print Editions: Standard Color uses a thinner paper stock than Premium Color, basically the same paper as the Black & White books. This usually means the colors are less vivid, but it also means the price drops a bit per page in the production process.

Examples of pages: Premium Color vs. Standard Color.

I absolutely love this book for its rich and serious immersion in history eras and human cultures. One of the best aspects of Sothis Ascends is its focus on running the chronicles lasting from prehistorical times to the modern days and even not-so-far future. This is one splendid, colorful and witty product worthy of the Onyx Path name. Especially I want to congratulate authors on the depicting of Egypt in the first chapter and Byzanthium on the third. These are really intelligent, informative and inspiring parts of the book.

Format

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.
