The Imperial Age: London


Adamant Entertainment is proud to present a setting book for The Imperial Age, our line of Victorian/Steampunk products, made for use with d20 Modern or Past.

London is the greatest city of the Imperial Age. While much of the steel and production industries of England resided in Birmingham, the coal that drove the colonial enterprises was extracted in Wales, and shipping was increasingly centered in Southampton and Liverpool, London was the seat of power for the largest empire in the world. Millions walked its teeming streets, and the city has been the setting for diverse Victorian themes and genres, from detective fiction to steampunk.

The Imperial Age: London is a complete guide to using the city as a setting for your Victorian-era campaigns, no matter what the genre. Included are detailed descriptions of every district, informative sidebars on such diverse topics as money, precedence, Freemasons, workhouses, the Metropolitan Police Force and more, and suggestions on running adventures and campaigns in the greatest city of the age.

Included within the pages of this supplement is a genuine Imperial Age document -- the 1899 edition of Bartholomew's Pocket Atlas & Guide to London, featuring detailed street-level maps of every corner of the city, as well as a reference index to streets and places of interest.

A history and overview of the greatest city of the British Empire. What I liked were the inclusion of the real maps from the time, but improved over how they were presented in the India book. There is even a brief description of some of the neig [...]

I like Imperial Age London. While you could go on-line and find all of this information on your own, this product removes that tedious work and combines it all in one neat product. The layout is simple and lacks much in the way of frills. The a [...]

Waste of money, halve the material is a 1899 map and street register of London and then a rundown of all the bouroughs. Nothing one couldn't find online. [...]

The Imperial Age: London is one of the best little supplements I have seen out there in a time. At least to my taste. Built around a historical Victorian London guide, which adds to the feeling of credibility it then expands. In ends up detailing too [...]

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.
