Lost Books: Book of the Black Tongue

Watermarked PDF

While Tobias Morley masqueraded as a simple actor and diplomat, history remembers him as the infamous spy and provocateur nicknamed the Black Tongue by his victims. Using a combination of arcane wordplay and natural charm, he manipulated the politicians of his day and initiated conflicts that continued for decades. Today his legend continues thanks to a simple book of plays and spells, many of which contain the details of his arcane spells hidden behind a series of complex ciphers.

The contents of the Book of the Black Tongue allow you to:

  • Discern untruths and subtexts with beneath the words
  • Sour friendships and start wars with Blacktongue's baleful mediation
  • Make even the most outrageous bluff seem plausible with Blacktongue's brilliant lie
  • Lull others into false security with Blacktongue's careless confession
  • Win any argument with Blacktongue's dominated debate
  • Use words as weapons with Blacktongue's verbal barb
  • Sow discord among your foes with the circle of aphasia
  • Sway any crowd with the aid of the Instant Orator
  • Create the ultimate secret message with savage script
  • Have secret conversations with your allies using the subtle sentence
  • Make even the most honest man seem false with truth to untruth
  • Steal unfamiliar tongues from others with word thief

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.
