The Imperial Age: Advanced Class - Gentleman Scientist


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

From reanimating corpses to invisible men, the Gentleman Scientist is a staple of the Victorian literary genre. These reclusive inventors work tirelessly in their laboratories to unlock secrets of science that humanity has yet to discover and make practical applications with them.

While the inventions of literary Gentleman Scientistsare ostensibly rooted in scientific principles, in truth they are often just as mysterious and unexplainable as the magical arts. For example, the process that transformed Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde is explained as an exotic drug, but in truth it is a magical potion. With that in mind, the marvellous inventions of the Gentleman Scientist advanced class are derived from the F/X abilities found in the core book. This serves two goals. First, it provides a ready reference and inspiration for new inventions. Second, it allows the Game Master to introduce F/X abilities into a campaign without including magic or psionics.

If the Scientific Detective book allows you make Holmes, and Monster Hunter make (a younger) Van Helsing, then this book allows you to make a Victorian fantasy Tesla. If you are looking to turn The Imperial Age into a more Steam Punk style game, [...]

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.
