L’Ombre du Glorieux Empire



Watermarked PDF

‘‘...Ils sont cruels et intelligents et pour eux la ‘moralité' ne signifie pas grand chose en dehors du respect des traditions vieilles de plusieurs centaines de siècles.''
Michael Moorcock, Elric de Melniboné

Pendant dix mille ans, le Glorieux Empire de Melniboné tenait le destin de la terre entre ses mains, soumettant les tribus barbares et les réduisant en esclavage. Ce peuple inhumain gardait le monde sous sa coupe avec sa magie démoniaque et le feu de ses dragons. Le peuple de l'Ile aux Dragons demeure dans la capitale d'Ymrryr, confiant dans sa domination suprême du monde.

Mais son règne ne fut jamais réellement assuré. Rendus aveugles par les drogues et leur arrogance, ils s'aperçurent trop tard de la menace. Ils sortirent vainqueurs de la guerre mais au prix de nombreux sacrifices. Maintenant l'empire n'est que ruines, une ombre de sa gloire passée.

Suite au couronnement du Prince Dragon Elric, les citoyens de Melniboné réclament de l'empereur un assaut décisif contre le monde. Ils demandent le réveil des dragons afin que leur fiers Princes Dragons s'envolent une fois de plus et reprennent ce qui leur a appartenu. Mais l'albinos, perdu sans ses pensées, broie du noir, victime de cette émotion appelée ‘conscience' et étrangère à l'esprit Melnibonéen.

Parmi la cour, la rumeur circule que le règne de l'empereur albinos sera de courte durée et qu'il va apporter des changements profonds au sein du Glorieux Empire. En effet, certaines factions se mettent à l'oeuvre pour être sûr que cela se produise.

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.
