Hope&Glory: Number the Brave

Watermarked PDF

The long winter that buried the capitals of Europe under a thick blanket of ice and shattered a civilization also brought spring to the Sahara for the first time in millennia. Working with the African Council of Nations, the Italian refugees are turning the desert into a garden.

But the barbaric remains of old colonial power want to snatch a bite of this new prosperity, one outpost at a time.
Surrounded by ruthless enemies, Captain Bhekizizwe of the Zulu Army and his beatyful and lethal bodyguard Gabisile will have to muster a handful of men and face the most savage challenge they ever met.
Hold the enemy at bay until reinforcements come.
Hoping they are coming.
You must show your bravery when your bullets are counted.

Number the Brave is a story set in the universe of “Hope & Glory”, a game setting developed for the Savage Worlds rules.
The “Hope & Glory” universe exists for the game and for the gamers, and attached to the novel there's a roundup of gaming information for those readers that would like to start playing straight away.

Welcome to a new world... On the 21st of October 1852, the citizens of London and Paris were awed at the sight of the western sky turning suddenly a strange shade of purple andred. The first seismic shocks were felt all over the world in the following hours, and by the dawn of the 23rd of October, the giant waves hit the coasts of Europe. In the evening of the same day, while the tremors continued, catastrophic waves also hit the coasts of Asia. Whole cities, blasted by the earthquakes, were submerged by the sea. Millions of lives were lost. Then the Black Rain began, washing the ruins and leaving behind a thick layer of ashes. Dark, impenetrable clouds hid the sun, and the Thirty Years Winter began. In the Northern Hemisphere crops failed, snow-bound cities went up in flames as the populations rioted and the governments tried to find a solution, the means to survive.
One hundred years have passed now since the Catastrophe, and humanity has survived. In the former colonial domains of Africa and South America. In the blasted plains of China. Among the remains of the Japanese archipelago. In Russian palaces sealed against the howling winds of the steppe. In the land that once was India. With sacrifice and ingenuity, with courage and hope, new nations have crawled back from the brink to claim the new world.
Science is a beacon to the future.
From the frozen wastes of Europe, where the mammoth roam, to the proud Zulu Nation of Africa, from the technological wonders of the Anglo-Indian Raj to the mist-shrouded shores of Lost America, these are the stories of a new, strange world.

Thanks for reading, and have fun!

Zulus spears soar in the sky
they want to take away both you and the world
which has sank, you are still with me
and the palisade, falling as if supine
This cottage betrays you secretly
when you are asking once
once by force from the hill
And big feet are preparing for my face
me a snake and a watchman
Pale shot without laughter
and the stolen month continues
- You are good, under the round sky
you are looking into nothingness
still not this one
You are sitting on a step leaning on a chair
the moon will ask you new tasks
- Like being with hope and on the distaff side
when they are finished
Homeland is seeking
Black sets, with rose eclairs
Cherry lips, no salt
Is my homeland, beautiful scar
I will make a new one when the ball is missing
At the top of my forehead, I will manage
and wipe the families and pride, sign
You are here at home, Zulu and Bantu...See more

Ye, but i`m not sure if it is bearable, because, you know, google translate. e.g.should have been "bullet" not "ball", but still if it is understandable, it`s ok. I think in polish, so in polish it`s polished, there is only a crude translation. and there should be "pythia" saying about her. and the end, "lauging", this part sounds beautiful in polish, but here better would be "I hear you.. Lotar".
The problem is I don`t feel english text, so I don`t know how readers receive it. and of course I question myself, if it is appropriate - "is my homeland a beautiful scar?" and "I wipe my lineage and our sign away".

Being a non-native English speaker I can relate Rafal.
I assure you it's pretty enjoyable though. :)

Product Information
Rule System(s)
File Size:
1.91 MB
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.
