A Red & Pleasant Land


Multiple 2015 ENnie Award Winner!
GOLD AWARD: Best Writing
GOLD AWARD: Best Setting
SILVER AWARD: Best Adventure

A terrible Red King wars with an awful Queen, and together they battle into being a rigid, wrong world... and this book has everything you need to run it. (And any other place in your first, second, third, fourth or fifth edition game that might require intrigue, hidden gardens, inside-out-rooms, scheming monarchs, puzzles or beasts, liquid floors, labyrinths, growing, shrinking, duelling, broken time, Mome Raths, blasphemy, croquet, explanations for where players who missed sessions were, or the rotting arcades and parlors of a palace that was once the size of a nation.)

Zak Sabbath, game master on I Hit It With My Axe and author of the multiaward-winning Vornheim: The Complete City Kit now brings the same do-it-yourself tables-and-toolkits approach and eerie magic to an entire distorted continent.

“It’s inadequate to call A Red & Pleasant Land brilliant. With alchemist swagger, Zak takes the base matter of well-worn fantasy standards and our cheerful nerd hobbies, and makes the strangest gold.”
— China Miéville

“God this is beautiful, I love this.”
— Molly Crabapple

“It should be next to impossible to do anything original with Dracula or Alice, but Zak Sabbath demonstrates instead that it’s next to impossible for him to put out a bad game book. He trails his barbed artistic and gaming sensibilities through these two modern myths and emerges with something more than a mashup or a collage: it’s a necromantic restoration of a nightmare that never was.”
— Kenneth Hite, designer of Qelong and Night’s Black Agents

“Zak is not just imaginative, he’s bold. Which means that while he recognizes the value of fantasy traditions, he doesn’t hesitate for a moment to throw out anything that’s become tired or dull.”
— Monte Cook, author of Numenera

One of the few things truly worthy of the hype. $15 seems expensive to me for a pdf but if you are gaming it is well worth it. I could go on about the guest charts and the alice class but there's nothing I could say that wasn't already said bett [...]

1st) Why only 4 stars? It ended. While it has a high page count, many are wasted with useful information and not describing the setting. The setting is plenty detailed. If you buy it, you will understand. 2nd) It was worth every cent of $15; but [...]

This is very, very impressive. It's full of information and great ideas. I didn't have the money to buy the print version, which looks amazing, so I got the PDF version. The collision of worlds between Alice in Wonderland and vampires appealed to me. [...]

This "module" is beyond description. It doesn't really do it justice to call it a module. It's a world in and of itself, that can house several whole campaigns. The sheer volume of information Zak has put to writing is astounding, especially [...]

I want to say off the bat that when I heard Zak was doing an Alice in Wonderland-ish sort of adventure my expectations were high, but guarded. I have seen Alice done a number of bad ways; mostly ones that relied on a one to one translation between sto [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
