Shadows of Esteren - Dark Romanticism Artbook 12-page Preview


Dark romanticism, beauty and death. Travel the Esteren territories.

Immerse yourself in the Shadows like never before. This visual journey will take you all over the Tri-Kazel peninsula and beyond.

This 12-page excerpt gives you a taste of what this book will be like.

Dark Romanticism is expected to clock in at 200 pages, spanning a selection of our best illustrations, as well as new artworks, along with game design notes and narrative pieces. It is a journey through the awe-inspiring, deadly lands of Tri-Kazel, featuring many creations by Gawain, Chris, Nicolas Jamme, and Chane! We are honored to have Yoann Lossel as a special guest.

This artbook will be organized in 8 themes, providing material to illustrate your role-playing sessions:

► Demorthèn: Spiritual guides, sacred druids, heirs to the Osag culture, Demorthèn embody the connection between the world of men and that of the spirits.

► Magience: Holders of a science from the faraway Continent, Magientists have the ability to change the world—for better or for worse. They are the ideological adversaries of both the Demorthèn and followers of the Temple, and follow a rational, humanist credo.

► Temple: Soustraine’s faith brought major changes to Tri-Kazelian culture. A source of hope for some, a danger in the eyes of others, the Temple has quickly grown into one of the major factions of the peninsula.

► Occultism: Investigators of the supernatural, mediums, and sorcerers wielding forbidden powers, occultists must usually live in anonymity and remain on the move to avoid persecutions.

► Landscapes: The peninsula of Tri-Kazel abounds in grandiose, wild landscapes. They are the untamed soul of this windswept land.

► Lifestyles: Illustrations of Tri-Kazelian civilization and its ways of life.

► Figures: Esteren brings the human condition to the forefront, the struggle of men and women to achieve their goals in the face of adversity and tragedy. This section is dedicated to them, depicting figures of Tri-Kazel.

► Feondas and Creatures: In the depths of forests, at the bottom of lakes and rivers, creatures lurk—deadly beauties haunting Tri-Kazelian folklore. The focus of this chapter is Feondas, including many new illustrations.

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.
