Furthest - Crown Jewel of Lunar Tarsh

Selected Option:

The City of Furthest – known as Eschatê to romantics, or Colonia Ultima to pedants – was founded by Hon-eel the Artess, the Third Inspiration of Moonson, in the 29th year of the Fifth Wane (1492 ST). Etymologists dispute the origin of the name – the city was built where the Oslir crosses the old Deathline, at the highest navigable point for grain barges, and some say it represents the ne plus ultra or greatest extension of the Lunar Empire.

Celebrated as the glory of the Lunar Provinces, one native poet described the city as “a reflection of Glamour in bricks and mortar, not moonlight and dreams.” And here it is brought to riotous life for use in any RuneQuest campaign set in the fateful Eighth Wane of History!

The book opens with a Gazetteer of Furthest, walking you along each of the city’s main arteries before delving into its quarters, acropolis, and sewers.

An overview and map of the Kingdom of Tarsh come next, detailing the many cities, villages, temples, and other points of interest in this greatest of the Lunar Provinces. Neighbouring lands are described from a staunchly Tarshite perspective: “All Tarsh is carved into three parts,” as General Fazzur wrote in the first volume of his Commentaries, and this account includes the Exiles’ bandit lands and the remote Far Place region.

The organisation of the Kingdom is explored in depth: a mishmash of Districts, Clans and Nobles reveals the texture and complexity of this land. Next is an overview of Major Players in Tarsh and Furthest politics as of 1625: King Pharandros, his rivals from the Orindori Clan, key members of the Royal Household, civic leaders, military commanders, and two notorious criminals, all suitable as patrons or targets. Abbreviated RuneQuest statistics are included.

Jaxarte Whyded preserves a street-level view of Furthest in one of his celebrated journals describing a brief visit to the city.

A History of Tarsh in Sixteen Kings runs at pace through the glories of Tarshite history, from the foundation of the Tribe of Tarsh to the most recent events.

Minor Cults of Tarsh provides a plethora of local spirit cults and details their special Rune spells for use in RuneQuest games.

A Tarsh Bestiary describes several unique species found in the city of Furthest and the land of Tarsh, again with full RuneQuest stat blocks.

Finally, Something Foul in Newmarket is a scenario exploring the streets, alleys, and sewers of the city.

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.
