Colonial Gothic RPG (Atomic Array 001)

It's the 4th of July, and we're celebrating by launching a new podcast about the games we love to play. In this first episode, we speak with Richard Iorio of Rogue Games.

Colonial Gothic
If your fantasy game sometimes feels like it's constantly retreading old ground, give Colonial Gothic a read. This historical setting, grounded in colonial America on the eve of the War of Independence, will seem familiar to anyone who has studied the founding of the United States. Colonial Gothic captures the feel of that era, while exploiting the holes in our knowledge to add elements of the supernatural. We especially liked how Rogue Games has used little known historical facts and cultural elements to twist colonial history, bringing out a fantastic feel. With Colonial Gothic, truth truly is stranger than fiction.

Rone's Rant: Edition wars

Colonial Gothic: Secrets
Some of the strange truths of colonial America are expanded in Secrets, the first Colonial Gothic supplement. The excellent bestiary is backed up by a robust section on secret societies and organizations, such as the Knights Templar and the Freemasons. There is a lot of material in this book, and it is obvious from the start that Rogue Games did their homework. Check out the bibliography for some solid sources for research.

Make sure to check out the New World Almanack.

We're giving away two Colonial Gothic book sets - each containing the Colonial Gothic Rulebook and Colonial Gothic: Secrets. Listen to find out what you must do to enter!

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.
