HeroQuest: ILH1 - Imperial Lunar Handbook v1

Watermarked PDF

The Lunar Empire

The Imperial Lunar Handbook is the essential guide to the vast Lunar Empire. Mighty and magical, decadent and dynamic, conquering and liberating, the Empire is rich and complex, a land of heroes, soldiers, and missionaries. It is a fusion of many disparate regions, each with its own beliefs, customs, and magic. Over all, the Red Moon guides, and the Son of the Goddess rules.

Selected Contents

  • Children of the Goddess - An introduction to the mighty Lunar Empire, including information on What Everyone Knows, All Her Children, A Timeline of the Lunar Empire, Heroes and Other Exceptions, Governing the Empire, Travel in the Empire, The Imperial Army, and Homelands (including Dara Happa).
  • Under the Red Moon - An overview of the nine satrapies of the Empire, the Western Reaches, and the Lunar Provinces, including six additional homelands for player heroes: Rinliddi, Sylila, Darjiin, Pelanda, Carmania, and the Lunar Provinces. Each homeland provides a keyword for that culture; common magic; a specialized religion, including common cults, practices, and orders; a sample magic keyword; and an illustration of a typical hero from the homeland.
  • Hero Bands - The Stone Poets and the Seventh Chance File, two bands that beginning heroes can join right away.
  • Associations - The Seeburn, one of the many associations that organize the people of the Empire.

Imperial Lunar Handbook, Volume 1: The Lunar Empire is the first in a series that will detail the peoples, homelands, and religions of vast Peloria. Future volumes will concentrate on the most important regions within the Empire, including Dara Happa, Rinliddi, Carmania, and the Lunar Way that overlays all of the local religions.

Imperial Lunar Handbook is intended for both players and narrators. You must own HeroQuest, Roleplaying in Glorantha, or Hero Wars to use it.

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.
