Coriolis - The Diamond Sands


I am Emira Kultak bint Ghazan, and I sit upon a troubled throne. As you may have heard, my traitor brother has risen in rebellion against me. Entrusted with the family fleet, he has foolishly determined that he can use its might to oust me from the throne which my father has entrusted to me. Yet, while I must focus my energies upon punishing the pride and greed of my brother, I weep to hear that my father has disappeared.

My father has abandoned the duty that he set himself as treasurer of our family’s investments, and left for a place called The Diamond Sands. He has taken with him some hundreds of thousands of birr, at a time when the family should be shepherding its wealth prudently to withstand the attack upon us by my brother. I fear what temptation might have overwhelmed him in his dotage, and cannot help but wonder if some enemy has duped him, or if some mental collapse threatens him. Please, recover my father, and take him safely back to his villa.

The Diamond Sands is a luxury resort – a getaway for an elite few, and home for even fewer. A habitation dome rises above glittering sands, with views to crystal mountains beyond, while a cluster of recreational domes around its base provides the finest luxuries for the chosen few.

For the most privileged elites the resort provides unique opportunities for relaxation - and for diplomacy.

And for GMs and players it provides three distinctive settings for adventures, each prompting unique stories and challenges for the PCs.

This 38 page PDF includes:

  • Full descriptions of the three zones of the resort - from the opulence of the guest areas, to the shadowy shanty town in the caverns below - with unique locations within each detailed.
  • A chapter on the resort's fatally alluring Host and her unique Powers.
  • Adventure hooks and three adventure outlines for GMs to flesh out for their own players.
  • A full adventure, Love Once More, where a mission to recover an old warlord from the resort determines the fate of an Emirate.

With thanks to our crazy playtesters. With each and every inspired or decadent decision - from partying with Ekilibri or pursuing a suicidal love affair in the glittering domes above, down to the skulduggerous scheming and the most well planned shot-to-the-head assassination in the caverns below - you have helped bring this book to new players, who can now make this their own for their own machinations and indulgences. Thank you for the journey so far, and here's to many further adventures!

This is so cool! The story is great, with exceptionally well-realized characters, locations, and scenarios. The PDF is professionally-laid out, and looks beautiful. If you want an adventure that not only fires the imagination but is easy to visualize [...]

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.
