Leagues of Gothic Horror

Selected Option:

Light your lamp, check the doors and windows are locked, and prepare to enter a world where the arcane and occult are very real.

For all of mankind’s advances in science, the world remains a realm of mystery and supernatural occurrences. The Victorian Era is the age of sinister fictional and historical villains, such as Count Dracula, Mr. Hyde, and Jack the Ripper, and an age when interest in the occult reaches new heights.

This major expansion to Leagues of Adventure is one of restless spirits and haunted houses, crumbling castles and Gothic architecture, fog-shrouded streets and deep forests, decadence and decay, secrets and madness, in which the supernatural defies the rationality of science and cold logic.

Within this book you will find:

  • New Archetypes, Skills, Talents, Flaws, Leagues, and weird science devices specifically designed for those devoted to fighting the forces of darkness.
  • Eight detailed player characters (with art) and eight henchmen ready to use straight from the book.
  • Rules for horror, corruption, fortune-telling, occult grimoires, magic, and mentalism, plus an array of occult relics ranging in power from mere trinkets to potent items of myth and legend.
  • Statistics and information on 38 fearsome monsters, 26 human lesser villains and heroic allies, 22 diabolical major villains, and 7 sinister cults.
  • A tour of Gothic Horror locales around the world.
  • Guidelines for running Gothic Horror adventures and generating a spooky atmosphere around the gaming table.
  • Suggested styles for Gothic Horror games, sample campaign settings, and more adventure seeds.
  • A timeline and Who’s Who of Gothic Horror in the Leagues of Adventure setting.
  • A list of literary, audio, and visual references for the budding Gothic Horror Gamemaster.

Your description doesn't ACTUALLY say that Count Dracula, Mr. Hyde, and Jack the Ripper are included.

Also, I went to some effort to rip your table of contents page from the quick preview. They aren't listed there, either.

DO you provide stats / background on any of the archetypical gothic monsters?

I have seen the offer from Backerkit. I was wondering do I need the Ubiquity rules or Leagues of Adventure as well or do the products listed in Backerkit have all the rules I need to play?

Yeah, I'd say so. After perusing Leagues of Gothic Horror, I found lots of additions, but very little of the actual Leagues of Adventure rules.
You are also missing all of the original Leagues, characters, flaws, etc., without LoA.

Not while we have stock in shops, no.

Hardcover as well, perhaps?

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.
