Auran Empire Primer

Selected Option:

Enter a world of adventure, where a once-majestic empire is slipping into oblivion, and bold and ambitious conquerors are rising to forge new realms from the ashes of the old.  The Auran Empire Primer provides an introduction to:

  • The geography of the world of Cybele and the continent of Aurëpos, with a two-page full color map gridded in 24-mile hexes.
  • The history of the Auran Empire and the surrounding kingdoms, ranging from the sinister Sunset Kingdoms of Kemesh and Somirea, to the barbarian realms of Jutland, to the forgotten empires of Zahar and Thrassia.
  • The customs, fashions, and mythology of the Auran Empire, and the origins, appearance, and naming conventions of its inhabitants and their neighbours.
  • And more!

Designed over 10 years of active play, the Auran Empire setting is inspired by Late Antiquity and intended for use with Adventurer Conqueror King System and similar D20-based fantasy role-playing games.

We're working on it now! Give us about 4 weeks to get and approve a proof.

So, how about the print option ? I've just received Lairs and Encounters and it rocks, but I'm a sucker for setting. :)

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.
