Valkyrie Quarterly 26


Valkyrie is a quarterly British roleplaying magazine dedicated to grass roots roleplaying, to use a clich?: 'by gamers for gamers'. Its content is predominantly scenarios, source material, optional rules etc with fairly minimal industry related content. Valkyrie does however have a good reputation for its honest, no nonsense reviews.

Valkyrie has regular columns on gaming advocacy, (by 'The Escapist's' Bill Walton) and 'dysfunctional' gaming, (by Critical editor Jonny Nexus)). Other regulars include Saint's and Sinners: 'Where gaming meets the real world!, Soldiers of Fortune, a figures review column and Battlelines - a section on SF/fantasy miniatures gaming with material this issue provided by i-Kore and also a preview of Privateer Press' IK Warmachine. Also featuring the popular, original comic strips 'Yamara' and 'Thrud the Barbarian'.

In issue 26:

* 'The Way of the Chocolate Ninja' is a tongue-in-cheek multisystem article introducing a ninja with a conscience (with stats for HKATII, Feng Shui and OtE)

* 'Tears of the Godi' for Ars Magica is an intrigue ridden scenario set in the lands of the Vikings

* 'Loose Cannon' is a Cyberpunk 2020 scenario in which the players are hired to stop an assassination by a drugged up, wired up rogue agent.

* 'Delicatesse' introduces a fighting school for 7th Sea designed for the ladies of high society.

* 'Cat and Mouse' for GURPS Ogre has the players hiding from a MkV Ogre in a hostile, AI controlled city.

* Plus: British scenario hooks for Adventure! and guidelines on how to run 'troupe' style campaigns.

The off-chance anyone sees this, will the earlier editions be made available as well? There was some great UK World of Darkness setting articles in the early issues.

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.
