Darwin's World: The Lost City (LC1)

Updated 3/19/2007

The Lost City was the first fully developed “campaign” adventure and location sourcebook for the post-apocalyptic role-playing game, Darwin's World. This is an updated version of the adventure for Darwin's World 2nd Edition. The Lost City is no longer a “stand-alone” adventure; however, as many creatures first introduced here have been reworked and published in other Darwin's World supplements (most notably Metal Gods). In addition, a new sequel, Return To The Lost City (Secrets of The Second Dome) continues to expand on the Lost City setting and provides more opportunities for adventure in the otherworldly underground ruins.

A party of four to six characters of level 1-3 should be able to meet and deal with the initial dangers of the Lost City, but later dangers will require characters of much greater levels. The very nature of the city permits characters to carve out a niche or base of operations; permitting a protracted campaign to explore the city and encounter its bizarre troglodilian peoples.

The Lost City details in full the legendary “Sunken City”, formerly Bakersfield, California, as described briefly on pages 354-355 of the Darwin's World 2nd Edition rulebook. The term “Lost City” is used synonymously to describe the same location.

Nice work for those just getting into this genre. Modern or future is a nice change from fantasy, and more readily believed in a given situation. A decade ago even the fallout of nuclear war was believeable.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: [...]

Excellent adventure, very open-ended. Greatly resembles old D&D module "Dwellers of the Forbidden City". (This is a good thing.) Just needs to be updated to 2nd edition... [...]

Quite a well done product. A city of the near future fallen during the apocalyptic fall of man, wonderfully explored by the PCs. Very well worth the price. [...]

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.
