The Memorialists - Dead City Memories, Vol. 1

Suggested Price $4.95

“Ebét of the Hundred Gates, Mistress of the River of Life, City of the Living God, fallen to the hordes of Iks the Ninth, Ruler of the River of Death from Across the Poison Sea. Woe is become our fate!”

—scrawled on the Lime Wall of the Temple of the Everliving Cat.


The slow horizon has eaten the living god. The millennial city falls. Gore runs in the archaic streets. Bones break beneath the stud wheels of the conquerors.

"Reason!” they yell as they sack the towns of the megalopolis. Ash falls like snow and the great organs of war low in exultation.

The accountant divisions grind their mechanical calculators and the furnaces sing as they recycle the treasures of Ebét to pay the butcher bankers.

The agents of the alien Memorium stir. In this chaos, there is a sliver of time to save the treasures of this fresh-fallen culture.


This rpg zine is a quarter-crawler sandbox of part of a vast city being despoiled by an invading army. The players take the role of agents of an alien godlike entity, the Memorium, preserving the treasures and records of fallen cultures from oblivion.

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.
