Mother of Destruction


Katerina Ladon should need no introduction. She’s provided illustrations for a whole host of game companies and has been a regular contributor to Shadow of the Demon Lord and PunkApocalyptic: The RPG and, without a doubt, she has become someone I can trust to deliver the goods when I need for something monstrous and fun. As with the other fantastic artists who have contributed to the pages of Unspeakable Things, I gave Ladon no direction, no guidance beyond telling her to come up with something nice and scary, or something to that effect. Well, she turned over a delicious illustration that combines the erotic with the grotesque, as you can see on the following page.

     The image brought to mind the succubus, naturally. A striking feminine form holding aloft a powerless man to use or discard as she sees fit certainly falls within the concept of a fiendish vamp. Yet, her size, the glittering jewels dotting her skin, the exaggeration of her form evoke avarice, wealth, and excess. With “desire” fixed firmly in mind, I wrote this supplement to make the monster a manifestation of masculine desire and the ruin that loneliness, alienation, and unanswered appetite can bring. Let Mister Preswick’s mistress, the Mother of Destruction, wreak havoc in your games as she has on my creativity.

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.
