The Lost Treasures Issue

Mummies – A New Approach

Although it is an iconic monster in the history of horror movies, most fantasy and horror games do not give the mummy the respect it deserves. A flaming torch or some holy water, and it’s all over. Whether you are a roleplayer or a miniatures gamer, here are some options you can use to restore the bandaged dead to their rightful place among the creatures of the night.

While systemless, the notes in this article can help GMs and wargamers to develop game statistics and rules for any game system. Seven mummy classes of increasing power are presented – or seven stages in the complete resurrection of a mummy, as seen in the classic Boris Karloff movie The Mummy or Anne Rice’s novel The Mummy: Or, Ramses the Damned.

While based on the ancient Egyptian mummies of antiquity, pulp, and modern horror, the mummies and amulets described in this article can also be used in Egyptian-themed fantasy settings, such as the nation of Stygia in Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age or the land of Khemri, home of Warhammer’s dreaded Tomb Kings..

The Carter Conspiracy – A Runequest Scenario for Luther Arkwright

It is November the 3rd, 1922. You are all seated about a dining table under the spread of canvas, enjoying an aperitif as the day’s incessant heat finally gives way to the chill of the desert night. Howard, your host, gives a toast to Lord Carnarvon, in thanks for his generosity sponsoring this final year of exploration in the Valley of the Kings. As the genteel company raises fluted glasses a tall, imposing figure sweeps in as if from nowhere.

One moment the majestic vista of the dusk-lit Nile was empty, the next stands a man dressed in Bedouin robes his face covered by the tail of his turban. A heavily accented voice rasps, ”If any one of you truly loves Thebes and wishes to sit a million years, your eyes beholding happiness, then follow me now, to seek the greatest treasure ever lost to mankind ...”.

This adventure takes place on Parallel 00-09-17 Britain Dominant, ostensibly similar to the geopolitical period shortly after World War I save that King Edward VII still rules. Using his modernised military he pre-empted the Great War, ruthlessly crushing Germany so that the Empire emerged strongest of the Triple Entente. Peace now rules under British gunboat diplomacy, its might unmatched by the other nations.

The characters are guests of Howard Carter just prior to his discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen. But what is the true treasure being sought after, who exactly is hunting it, and what is the curse – if any – that protects it?

Dirty Deeds – A Treatise on Treasure Hunting

Many adventures can and have been built around the concept of hunting for lost artifacts and digging up treasure in exotic locales far away from civilization and the Known World. While these scenarios can be exciting, they often overlook the truly dirty side of excavating treasures – the hard labour of actually excavating treasure and the grave dangers of doing so.

File Size:

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.
