Forbidden Kingdoms - Paris: The Spectral City Babbage Edition

Watermarked PDF

In the dark there are things that man should never see and in the dim shroud that encompasses Paris these things make their presence known. Even at the height of noon the haunted city is cloaked in a penumbra, casting a gloomy shadow over the shifting pattern of the metropolis. Faintly the sounds of music can be heard over the din of the crowd, almost as if the ethereal denizens are holding Carnival in the heart of capital. Where once the mighty walked, they do so again. Souls trapped in a precarious balance between our world and Theirs. The orchestra is set at the base of the Arc de Triomphe, the time is right for you to journey to the city of Eternal Night. Won’t you join us for a dance?

This product is a great addition to any Victorian or SteamPunk game!

In an inexcusable oversight, I managed to run a 4 month FATE game using this setting and book without posting a review. Spoiler alert, if I start a review with "I ran a months-long campaign with this book", I'm going to give it high marks. [...]

Okay, let me just say this straight up -- this is a FUN supplement! Even though I am not running a game currently using the Forbidden Kingdoms system, this city guide has given me literally dozens of ideas for games as far flung as Castle Falkenstein [...]

I would have liked to have seen the GM's Codex for Forbidden Kingdoms come out before the Paris sourcebook, but still, there is a lot of great material in here and beefs up the mystical content of the core game as well as provide a in-depth setting for [...]

WOW. I can't comment on the d20 mechanics here but this is a lovely book, with tons of interesting ideas. I'm really pleased that I picked this up. [...]

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.
