Selected Option:

PDF + Softcover, Premium Color Book


The Conquerer City. The City of a Thousand Minarets. The Victorious. For a millennia, Cairo has stood on the banks of the Nile as  a succession of foreign rulers came then faded into the sands of history.

The City of a Thousand Minarets is a guide to the pulp fiction Cairo of 1930s for the Ubiquity Role Playing system that powers Hollow Earth Expedition and other role playing games. From the crowded back alleys where con men hawk counterfeit antiquities to the Egyptian Museum, from the coffeeshops and social clubs of the new boulevards to the ancient necropolises of the Old City, the points of interest are presented. The politics, culture, significant figures, and the archeology of the pulp era Cairo are explored.

To be used to its fullest, this guide requires the Hollow Earth Expedition role playing game by Exile Games.

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.
