A Live Action Disaster Movie

For the past ten years, Northern Lights Adventure Tours has offered modern adventurers an opportunity to take unique trips to the arctic. Many go on the tour to test their mettle against the cold conditions, some to experience the beauty of nature. Whatever the reason, Northern Lights guarantees coverage of participants needs with first class service and total attention to detail.

Once the plane goes down, though, all bets are off.

And nobody packed a lunch.

What are you willing to do to survive in the cold, barren mountains?

The Long Way Home is a standalone Scenario of Wilderness Suvival and Cannibalism for A Grandiose Disaster, and requires that game to play. Check it out here.

A Grandiose Disaster is a Live Action Roleplaying Game where you play out your own character-centric disaster/horror movie! Using a set of structured scenarios, anywhere from 6 to 12 players play archetypical characters run through the wringer of the disaster. Who will you try to save? What choices do you make to survive?

Who lives, and who dies?

The Long Way Home is by Megan Pedersen. A Grandiose Disaster is written and designed by Mike Young and is published by ndpdesign.

Original electronic
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.
