Gaia Awakening: Maligned Essence


Gaia Awakening: Maligned Essence is a Solo Story Adventure. The premise for the story, along with the endgame of the antagonists, are included along with a brief description of the setting and circumstances. The descriptions are provided for the purpose of immersion only.

The return of Magic to Gaia has attracted the attention of many other life forms. When visitors leave behind a relic which contains their essence, an old tale is resurrected of those who drink blood, avoid sunlight and appear to be immortal. Vampires are no longer folklore, and Gaia may not be ready.

The Story is your own to tell, and your Character is yours to play.



There have always been stories of those who feed on the lifeforce of others in order to preserve their own existence. A potent metaphor for those who do nothing but take, the mythology of Vampirism has been twisted over millennia in order to provide a narrative lesson in morality. Far easier to dismiss the evolution of a hybrid human predator as folk legend, an unsolicited lesson for the collective consciousness of the general population.

 The first Magic-User in the Gaian Consortiu to discover that her Abilities stretched beyond the current understanding of Vampires was Nathalie Truman. She had never shown a particular propensity for any Aspect, and was by all accounts an average Practitioner. Though Nathalie was valued by her community she grew tired of a life of mediocrity. On the night before her twenty-second birthday Nathalie saw a bright light in the sky which seemed to call to her. She crept out of her family’s estate and into the woods, feeling sonic waves of increasing magnitude pulling her towards a clearing. When she arrived she found a glowing orb, frozen solid and embedded in the ground. As she rubbed the orb she felt the ice begin to melt, and as she inhaled the cool night air she felt an essence rise from the orb and into her lungs. Her body became vitalised in a way that she had never experienced before. She smiled to herself as she knew intuitively that this energy was connecting to her Magic, and was bursting to manifest. Whatever was happening to her, she knew her life would never be the same again.

Product Information
File Size:
3.64 MB
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.
