LexOccultum: Alter Ego

Europe, the 18th century. The church is losing its grip on men struggling with old beliefs and dogmas. Alchemists, occultists, and secret societies dig deep into old mysteries and ancient obscurities. The Enlightenment is not only about breaking free from old institutions and structures, but also about discovering what has been hidden for hundreds of years, even millennia. The Illuminati, the Freemasons, the old Templars, and other secret societies hide in dark chambers, plotting for a new world order, or seeking to uncover the mysteries of dark arts and ancient wisdoms.

The nobles and aristocrats are a dying breed, living in decadence and excess, while the common people suffer in poverty. This is an era of enlightenment, but also of ignorance. Few know anything about the growing darkness; the vampires and other offspring of the devil. While conspiracies grow below the surface, kings and priests preach about submission and obedience. But who is to save men from this twilight of the gods, from falling into the darkness and being consumed by evil? Is it true that the apocalypse is coming?

LexOccultum takes place in a fictive historical 18th century, where the occult and supernatural are real, but not yet in full bloom.

Alter Ego contains the core rules for the players, including the following chapters:

The Character * The Character’s Skills * Equipment


Load your flintlocks, light your lanterns, and step into the crypt: this is LexOccultum! Awarded ”Game of the Year” in Sweden under its previous name Götterdämmerung, the roleplaying game of occultism, mysteries, and secret societies in an 18th century setting is here!

This is the twilight of the gods.

Welcome to LexOccultum.

As a backer i can confirm that the PDFs are way to pricey. Especially when you consider the poor quality of the translation.

This looks like something I might well enjoy, but over $50 U.S. for fewer than 400 pages (for this book and the GM manual, both of which are necessary to play) strikes me as a poor bargain. I'm not trolling here, and if others find the product worth the money, I wish them much happiness. But I do think it's fair to say that the pricing for these PDFs is way out of line with the market's norms.

I agree.

51$ for the 368 pages of the two core books needed to play would indeed already be above average pricing here on DriveThru, but a KS backer got all 3 core books for roughly 33$ (player, GM, and campaign book), so buying them here just clocks in at about double. Personally, I'm not okay with this pricing model.

Format
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.
