Suggested Price $1.96

A Stricken World

Shadows over Vathak blends the Otherworldly, Cosmic Horror themes of New England’s Lovecraft, the Macabre Mysteries of Poe, and the sensibilities of Victorian, Gothic Horror Adventure into an original fantasy setting for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

In this, our Explorer’s Guide to Vathak, we condense down the expansive country of Vathak and game setting of Shadows over Vathak, and it’s related Player’s Guide (a tome over 450 pages!) into a short but concise text to introduce the uninitiated and preview all that is available in that larger volume.

Included in this book are:

• An overview of the Shadows over Vathak setting and its tone and threats

• A review of all six major countries on Vathak: Grigoria, Sileasia, Khrota, Ina’oth, and The Colonies

• Write-ups (with racial traits) for all nine of the core races of Shadows over Vathak: bhriota, cambion, dhampir, hauntling, romni, svirfneblin, vindari, witchwolves, and wretched.

• A discussion of new classes and class options for Shadows over Vathak, including the full Fortune-Teller class, and half the list of class options for existing core, base, hybrid, and occult classes.

• A review (with basic stats) of the major four religions found on Vathak — The Church of the One True God, Worship of the Old Ones, The Court of Signs, and Ancestor Worship — with a discussion of the important roles cults, secret societies and alternative faiths play in the setting.

• Six example weapons: the lord’s hammer, romni crescent sword, and vindari hellraiser, and including three advanced firearms: the military pistol, military rifle, and vindari hand cannon.

All presented with rich images and discussion of the kinds of expansions to these things you will find in the complete Shadows over Vathak: Player’s Guide and all current and future Shadows over Vathak campaign setting books!

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.
