Turakian Age



Welcome to Ambrethel, a High Fantasy world in need of great heroes. It is a time of peril, when the shadow of Kal-Turak the Ravager looms over the world from the North, threatening to engulf all the peoples of Ambrethel in evil and horror.

The Turakian Age depicts this world in all the detail and imagination desired by Fantasy Hero players and GMs, but with plenty of room for gamers to add their own distinctive touches.

It includes:

    • an eight thousand year-long history of Ambrethel

    • numerous races suitable for PCs, ranging from Men (in many types), to the reptilian Drakin and Seshurma, to Orcs and Trolls, to Fantasy classics such as Dwarves and Elves

    • descriptions of over five dozen kingdoms and lands across the worls, ranging from the mighty Hargeshite Empire of Vashkhor, to the mysterious realm of Thun, to the windswept Gothundan Steppes

    • an evocative religious system featuring not just lists of gods, but theology, doctrinal and cultural conflict, and other dramatically important elements

    • nearly 100 new spells (including two new arcana of magic) and three dozen new enchanted items

  • a GM-only section including campaigning advice and tips, a GM's Vault with secret information about the world, hundreds of plot hooks, and NPCs and monsters

No matter what type of Fantasy adventure you're looking for, you can find it in The Turakian Age!

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.
