Folkloric - Baba Yaga, the First Setting in Rassiya


2006 ENnie Award Winner For Best Electronic Book!

The world's most famous witch awaits you! Step inside the land of Rassiya,and experience the folklore of a cold, northern land where nothing is quite as it seems. Living dolls spin perplexing riddles. Foul spirits lurk in cold swamps. Talking wolves lure unwary travelers deep into forbidding forests. And there, at the heart of darkness, lives the black-toothed hag Baba Yaga and her chicken-legged hut.

Will she aid you in your journey, or devour your living soul?

This sourcebook contains: maps that cover the land of Rassiya; a detailed description of the town of Derevnya, giving adventurers a base of operations for exploring the land around them; never-before-seen monsters based on real Eastern European folklore; a brand-new playable PC race, the Lebedinoe; randomized charts for generating traps and magical items on the fly; and an in-depth look at Baba Yaga herself.

I am not all that familiar with the folklore surrounding the mysterious Baba Yaga. As such it is not clear to me exactly how much here is right out of legends and what is the imagination and creation of the writing. While that might not seem like it [...]

Very rarely do I find a product that I makes me want to use every part of it. Sometimes I find a good feat, or a fun looking class, but for the most part, I tend to pick and choose bits ad pieces from a variety of products when creating a new character [...]

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.
