$5.99

Welcome to a land that's as familiar as history and as fanciful as a fairy tale. GURPS Alchemical Baroque presents the Known Lands, a place existing between the old history of magical tales and the new realities of exploration and enlightenment. It's a time of ghosts and giants, of spirits and spellcraft, of charm-slinging cunning-men and chubby sly cats. Yet even in these new times, the world needs heroes: haunted moors need exploring, wars need thwarting, and the fairies always need something -- even if they refuse to reveal it.

Containing material originally appearing in GURPS All-Star Jam 2004, this supplement has been expanded and completely revised to GURPS Fourth Edition standards. It contains the history and character-creation information needed to adventure in this strange-but-familiar place. Taking advantage of the tools and techniques in GURPS Thaumatology to bring this world fully to life, GURPS Alchemical Baroque contains information on alchemy and ritual magic in the Known Lands. It also offers stats for fairies, ogres, and sapient cats, plus information on ghosts, devils, and other threats. Take up your musket and quaff a brew of courage; fortune favors the bold!

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.
