Coriolis: The Prisoner of Arkus


Your guess is that the tall man is in his early forties. The cropped hair and grim lines of his face tells a tale of discipline. You know the type; a man with principles. His dark eyes radiate the kind of determination that can only come from conviction. 

  ”Do you have any family? How far are you willing to go in order to keep them safe? I have a sister. She’s much younger than me… I think her life is in danger.”

The player characters are contacted by a solemn judicator named Khaled Wakkari. He wants their help in freeing his little sister Zain from the Legion. She disappeared without a trace a few cycles ago, but Khaled has now received some information that has him convinced his sister is in the faction's grasp. He has spent all his birr and called in all the favors he can to prepare a bold and desperate rescue operation.
Khaled doesn’t know what awaits him or the player characters in the dark vastness of the horizon, or even if his sister is still alive. All he has is a set of coordinates and a name he only ever heard whispered in fear... Arkus. 

The Prisoner of Arkus takes the players into a fast paced, high-stakes, existential dungeon crawl, where they’re thrown into the middle of a top secret Consortium research project regarding ancient Portal Builder technology. It’s a perfect starter scenario, or prelude to a longer campaign, giving player characters with diverse backgrounds a reason to come together and become a crew.

Rule System(s)
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.
