Coriolis: The Prophetess of Marakanda


The Prophetess of Marakanda is a legendary artefact that has been lost for centuries. It is said that whoever sleeps near her dreams of the future. Now the Prophetess has appeared on the Coriolis space station - only to disappear again immediately. On behalf of a Zenithian art collector, the player characters set out to find the relic. Soon they find themselves caught up in a murderous intrigue between some of the station's most powerful factions.

The Prophetess of Marakanda is a short adventure for Coriolis - The Third Horizon. It is ideal as a one-shot and for new players who want to get to know the setting and rules. But experienced players will also have fun! The PDF comes with five pre-generated characters to get started directly.

About me (the author)

I’m a novelist, playwright, and show director from Germany. And a nerd and a professional RPG author with over 15 years of experience. I published more than three dozen books for Das Schwarze Auge / The Dark Eye, including 15+ adventures and scenarios, three novels, and several short stories. Some of them won awards. Other works have been published or planned for Splittermond, Forbidden Lands, and more. The German crowdfunding brought me in contact with Coriolis and made me a fan immediately. For over two years, I have been running a successful campaign in the Third Horizon now.

The Prophetess of Marakanda is my third supplement for Coriolis. Check out my other modules, too!

A short but very well built adventure! It nicely uses pieces of the Coriolis lore (some of Altai legendary past, some zenithian family feuds and a bit of the Syndicate business). It is designed to last, I think, for one session. The investigation consi [...]

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.
