Ancient Echoes: A Sourcebook For Cetacean Characters

Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
PDF + Softcover, B&W Book


When Dr. Marcus Gottfried genlifted five bottlenose dolphins to human-level intelligence in 2042, he changed the world forever. For the first time, humans found themselves sharing their planet with another sentient species. Since that time, genlifted bottlenoses—and the other species that joined them—have become influential citizens of both Earth and Poseidon. From Hydrospan to the Athena Project, genlifted cetaceans have come into their own and play prominent roles in all aspects of modern society and civilization.

Welcome to Ancient Echoes. This sourcebook for Blue Planet™ Second Edition (BPv2) gives players and moderators the resources they need to fully integrate cetacean characters into their games.

  • Detailed descriptions of cetacean biology, psychology, and culture
  • New cetacean species: common dolphins, belugas, and pilot whales
  • Complete information on cetacean society on Poseidon, including new details on Hydrospan and New Fremantle
  • New rules for cetacean character creation, telepresence, and remote operations that help players create and run exciting and effective cetacean characters

Wondering the same as Javier. Please make them ALL POD. I would buy ALL the Blue Planet books, 1st, 2nd and the new edition, in hardcovers, if I could.

I was wondering why this is the only one on pod when there are six more books of the second edition and the ones fron the first edition.

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.
