Terra Incognita


Exploration, Adventure, and Tea at Four:
Welcome to the National Archaeological, Geographic, and Submarine Society!

Terra Incognita is a roleplaying game of exploration, intrigue, and mystery, featuring adventure-scholars whose exploits span the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries. Armed with extensive training, unpredictable technology, and unimpeachable discretion, Society members (“Nags”) travel to the Four Corners of the globe – exploring unknown lands, investigating mysteries, and uncovering ancient knowledge. The Society studies and catalogs the information and artifacts so gleaned and sets about covering such things back up again if they deem the world is not yet ready for the knowledge or power that had lain hidden for so long.

So sharpen your Sword Cane, brush up on your Diplomacy skills, pack your adventurous Attire, and join us in the exploration of Terra Incognita!

Any kind of pulp tropes set in 1900-1910-ish is great. I will buy 'em right up!

I could polish up a convention adventure I used to run... "We're Archaeologists, Not Grave Robbers...."

When I get a chance, I'll be releasing that as a PWYW (pay what you want) pdf file. :-)

I think I have that one from somewhere. It was a lot of fun.

Yes, this is the same as the printed book. I managed to find the original files for Terra Incognita from 2001, and a computer old enough to have the right software on it to print to .pdf... Then we added navigation aids (table of contents, hyperlinks, etc.) to the .pdf.

Thanks. I was always hoping that there would be some new stuff, like scenarios, for this setting.

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.
