Poles of Power: A Sword's Edge Adventure


It’s the turn of the 11th century BCE in the Mediterranean. The kingdoms of the Achaean Greeks, the empire of the Hittites, the trade centre of Troy, and the powerful city-states that line the coast have fallen. Egypt faces ruin. The world, as you know it, is ending.

Welcome to the Late Bronze Age Collapse.

Blown off course on a trade mission, you find yourselves in the Levantine port city of Anatheros, with both a tyrant that seeks to exploit you and an opposition faction of aristocrats who would likely be happy to do the same. All you want to do is repair your vessel and sail home, but it seems that everyone with power conspires to stop you from doing so. How far can they push you? What will Anatheros look like when you finally do sail away?

In Poles of Power, you play a character who has fled their homeland during this time of disasters and chaos, and has found a community among those we now know as the Sea Peoples. Kingdoms, cities, and order itself have all collapsed, and now you seek to protect the community you have found—family and friends both.

Poles of Power is a historical adventure for Sword’s Edge, available on Drive Thru RPG, which includes a short discussion of the period, and six pre-generated characters.

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.
