The idea of long-lost cultures that were technologically or magically superior to those of the current era of a game setting is fairly common in both fantasy and science fiction. This mini-sourcebook contains entries for two dozen sorts of materials that were developed by ancient societies but which can no longer be created without the assistance of powerful magic or technology. They are suitable for use in any fantasy, modern, science-fiction, or post-apocalyptic games that use the d20 system and can easily be adapted for other games altogether.

We have released a revised, updated, and expanded edition of our Adamantine-bestselling City Builder: A Guide to Designing Communities! This edition of the book has been thoroughly rewritten, re-edited, redesigned, re-illustrated, and expanded from 172 to 240 pages and from 70 to 85 entries devoted to places characters might visit in the course of their adventures. It is a universal resource designed to help storytellers create exciting and compelling communities and places within them and is intended to be compatible with the needs of any ancient, Dark Ages, Middle Ages, Renaissance, fantasy, or other role-playing milieu.

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.
