Sáivu - A Vaesen Mystery


Soon after we started to get into the mountain, the setbacks began to come one after the other. Tunnels that were started suddenly collapsed for no apparent reason. Several miners fell ill. Equipment broke down. To date, we have made very little progress. I know it is much to ask of you to come to me here in the wilderness. But if we do not resolve this situation, we are lost!

An old childhood friend asks for help in solving a series of unexplained events at a newly started mine high up north in the Swedish mountains. The player characters confronts a type of Vaesen they have never encountered before, and that they might have to travel to another world to contact.

The mystery centres around racism and colonialism towards the Sami, and the player characters have to choose if they should be loyal to the Swedes or solve the mystery by helping a group of Sami.

The content of the mystery is also available as an add-on module for the Foundry VTT platform.

Any proceeds will be donated to the Sami Memorial Fund (Samiska Minnesfonden).

A Swedish version of this mystery is available here

Ok I am a sucker for an interesting setting and the conflict that arises between cultures, which is what is so great about Vaesen. I really appreciated the detail that Niclas has established for the indigenous inhabitants of the area and the inclusion [...]

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.
