Adamant Entertainment is proud to present The Imperial Age, our line of Victorian/Steampunk products, made for use with d20 Modern or Past.

The literature of the Victorian era has generated, refined, and fostered a great number of monstrosities that have endured to this very day. Who hasn’t heard of Count Dracula or Frankenstein’s Monster? What of the Martian invasion or the exploits of the Invisible Man? And who could forget the ultimate in personality disorders in the form of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?

There are a number of lesser known but just as fearsome literary Victorian monstrosities. Count Dracula did not appear on the printed page until 1897; however, the Victorian vampire myth was alive and well in the forms of Lord Ruthven, Varney, and Carmilla. Other monstrosities in the same mould included Brunhilda and Lady Ducayne. Pharos had a different spin on the mummy, while the Great God Pan destroyed the lives of mortals.

...And all of these literary creations paled in comparison to the factual and all-too-human Victorian monstrosity-- the anonymous and uncaptured serial killer known as Jack the Ripper, as well as the urban legend of Spring-heeled Jack.

The Imperial Age: Victorian Monstrosities collects all of these terrors and more, ready for use in your Victorian-era d20 campaign. Also included as an appendix is a complete open gaming system for handling horror using the d20 Modern rules set, as well as new feats, a new talent tree and a new template.

I agree with Jerry Linscott's review. ...one of the best of the Imperial Age line. If you run d20 Modern at all, you'll probably want this in your collection. [...]

This product alone was what sold me on the ENTIRE Imperial Age line. What you have here, folks, is the "Menace Manual" of the 1800's! Gaslight classics like Dracula, The Invisible Man, The Beastmen of Dr. Moreau, Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein's Monster, The [...]

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.
