Letters in the Gloom

Suggested Price $3.00

We were locked inside.

We didn’t know what was happening, not truly. We knew not to go outside. We knew that it was dangerous out there. And we knew that we were alone in our horror. 

Until the letters started to arrive. Whatever strange miasma that lingered outside, invisible yet heavy, it allowed words to slip through. They appeared at doors or windows, in places you could reach without inviting it inside. 

If you threw a letter into it? It vanished. Reappearing somewhere else, for some other lonely soul to read. Who knew if it reached who you wanted. 

But at least it reached someone.

Letters in the Gloom is a multiplayer roleplaying game about souls locked apart while desperately seeking connection through letters. The writers create and receive letters which are sent into the Gloom, theorizing about what the Gloom is, talking about the past, their hopes, and their fears. The Gloom receives and sends letters, sometimes creating them itself, to add to a creepy atmosphere of being watched by an unknown entity. 

It requires one facilitator (the Gloom) at 3 or more writers. It is designed for social distancing, through play via snail mail, email, or chat servers. This game is in playtesting and will remain PWYW until its final release.

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.
