Hic Sunt Myrmeleones

Suggested Price $1.00

The Twin Canals mirror each other so closely that astronomers on Earth have mistaken the doubling for an optical illusion. Where Thoth curves, Nepenthes follow. And midway between the two, their little sibling: The Thin Desert, where verdure can no longer reach. A pseudo-canal of dunes, hills, ruined palaces. Caravans cling to the imperial roads when crossing the desert. For bands of jackals and gods-­forsaken things stalk the empty ­mansions and petrified forests, and a single night suffices to get eaten, waylaid or driven mad.

Hic Sunt Myrmeleones is a Red Planet pocket bestiary featuring:

  • Eight illustrated monsters of the Thin Desert, including the titular Antlion. Each monster is presented with statblocks, suggested lairs, spoors and random tables.
  • Random tables of caravans, travellers, petty hermits and weird events to round out your desert encounter tables.
  • Six Red Planet spells with a note on Arean magic.
  • As well as an unlockable class: The Cinnamon Hunter

The bestiary should work with any level based adventure games in the classic tradition, and most entries are adaptable to weird deserts of a wider girth.

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.
