Zobeck Gazetteer

Watermarked PDF

This introduction to the Free City of Zobeck showcases its magic, its unique PC race, and many highlights of the city, and includes a beautiful city map. The Gazetteer offers full details of two distinctive elements of the setting.— Clockwork Magic and the kobold ghetto.

Clockwork magic is just what it sounds like: a school of new spells and creatures related to automatons and golems. The gazetteer defines the school with 32 new spells and a discussion of clockwork devices.

The kobold ghetto is a dimly-lit and dangerous place that comes alive by night, and that guards its privileges jealously. Learn who rules and what schemes the kobolds are honing behind the walls of their city-within-a-city.

For good measure, the Gazetteer includes the Gearforged PC race, plus a set of practical and strange city locales, a little bit of history, and five new clockwork monsters.

As a gazetteer-size treatment of the city, it provides enough that the shared world can truly be shared, without overwhelming a DM who wants to match the city to their own homebrew setting.

A welcome change of pace, Wolfgang Baur's Free City of Zobeck is broad-based enough to find a place in most medieval fantasy campaigns, but carries a distinct feel and flavor which will make it memorable and interesting to most players. SO, WHAT [...]

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.
