Antiquarians & Shovelbums

Graeme Davis writes about archeology in gaming

Magnus Fallgren & Lukas Thelin made the illustrations to accompany the article

Ancient ruins and unexpected discoveries are a common trope in adventure, horror, and fantasy fiction. From the legends of Eldorado to the pyramids of Egypt, from the Ark of the Covenant to the Holy Grail, seekers after fabled treasures and ancient wisdom have more than their share of danger and intrigue in books, TV shows, movies, and games. Whether your game is suited to William Stukeley and Captain Jack Sparrow, to Howard Carter and Indiana Jones, to Lara Croft and Nathan Drake, or to some fantasy or SF archaeologist yet to become famous, Graeme Davis – a former archaeologist himself – gives an overview of the different eras and specializations that make up the profession.

The Palhi of Telipinu

A Mythras adventure by Pete Nash

Illustrations by Lukas Thelin & maps by Anders Gillbring

Pre-generated characters are included

 

He should go to the way of Sun Goddess to the Dark Earth.

The door-keeper opened seven doors; he removed seven curses.

The bronze palhi vessels stand down in the dark earth.

Their lids are of lead; their handles are of iron.

The thing which enters into their interiors never goes out.

He smashed into them the anger of Telipinu, his temper, his sin and his vexation;

They should catch and they should not come back to the world.

This issue we present an investigative pulp-action scenario set in Turkey and the Levant during the 1930s. Since the theme is archaeology, we not only tap into the vibe of Indiana Jones to kick a few Nazis in the teeth, but also provide an adventure that encourages research into ancient myth, Hittite literature and actual historical persons. Nobody ever said roleplaying cannot be educational too!

Due to its length and detail, the scenario only specifies core skill checks and depends greatly on players looking up information as they follow clues to its conclusion. The Game Master should feel free to add additional skill tests as needed to promote tension and verisimilitude. Like all good pulp tropes, unnecessary killing should be avoided as the bad guys have guns, and at the start, the characters don’t.

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.
