Oubliette: First Steps in the Dark

Selected Option:

Beneath the universe lies a castle steeped in shadow. Called Oubliette by its denizens, it is a vast and labyrinthine, with massive crumbling provinces ringed by a series of walls that stretch up to the heavens. Its inhabitants are the Forgotten: people, ideas, and even gods that have been discarded by the tangled timelines of the World of Life and left for millennia in the dark.

For some, the Castle is a paradise. Food grows on the walls. The air swirls with magic. Even death is not permanent, most of the time. For others, the Castle is purgatory. Gray mists stifle the daylight. Insular factions wage idiosyncratic wars. Starvation is rampant and death is the least of a person's concerns.

This volume chronicles twelve stories about a place where the body is a costume, belief is a weapon, and monsters walk as men.

In these pages, a young witch wages war on an emperor's dinner menu, a private investigator struggles to solve his own murder, a troll and a kitten supervise an unusual burial, and an expedition to an abandoned laundromat does not go as planned.

Featuring revised content from the original Kickstarter campaign and additional material commissioned by backers, First Steps In The Dark is a braided anthology, with each story weaving into the next to form a complete chronicle of the events that will happen during Year One of the World of the Forgotten.

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.
