Victoriana - The Smoke


Welcome to our Black Friday weekend sale! For more early holiday savings, visit our sale page.

The soul of a nation, the heart of an Empire.

Welcome to the greatest city in the world. For nearly a thousand years it has stood against fire, plague and revolution, and still it endures.

Thousands flock to the city looking for a new life, only to become fuel for the fire of industry or be broken by vice and despair. But not everyone seeks the wealth of the capital, for amidst the rookeries and old places of the city there is old magic woven into the very stones.

London brings the world to your door; spices from the east, fine linen, fashions from Paris, mysterious artefacts from forgotten nations, opium, absinthe and many other dark delights. There are a thousand temptations and a million ways to enjoy them, and they all await you in the Smoke.

In this book you will find:

• An overview of the sights and sounds of the vast metropolis, detailing what it is like to live in London, whatever your station in life.

• Detail on how to get around the city, how to find a cab, a hospital, a messenger, the police or even more disreputable company.

• A breakdown of the city into its many districts, each with their own distinct flavour.

• A selection of NPCs and adventure hooks to draw you into London’s fog-shrouded streets.

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.
