Modern Dispatch (#114): Progenitor

ZIP File

A Progenitor is an imponderably alien entity from unformed antiquity. It is a creature that cannot, or perhaps should not, remain in a fully-formed universe. A Progenitor is older than the world, older than the universe - perhaps older than time itself.

The most familiar, yet in some ways the most disturbing, appear to be the template or ideal for an entire order of material life. Others are imponderably alien, the prototypes of failed realities and unrealized sentiences. Regardless of type, a Progenitor is incredibly dangerous. Its powers are both immense and difficult for mundane energies to combat, and its nature and intentions are almost always destructive.

Some scientists theorize that Progenitors' destructive nature stems from a sort of cosmic competition, that the existing reality is the get of a single Progenitor and all others would stop at nothing to annihilate and replace it.

If a given Progenitor were not the only one of its own kind, it might be capable of communication, but the very nature of all other existing life forms is antithetical to it, and it never speaks or expresses itself in any way.

About This Document
Within this document, you will find a sample Progenitor - a protean titan from darkest antiquity, at once unimaginably alien and unthinkably human -, the Progenitor template, and tips for using Progenitors in fantasy and modern campaigns.

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.
