Professor Gordian's Grimoire

Watermarked PDF

Professor Gordian's Grimoire contains 148 pages of monsters described and statted as found in the Fellowship of the White Star campaign including dozens of new monsters. There is a plethora of phenominal artworks including over 20 from the supremely talented artist Jesse Cutler, who did the awesome dragon on the front cover.

When sold at Origins 2009, the player base was ecstatic about the detail it adds to the campaign setting.

The Fellowship of the White Star campaign is set in semi-historic earth 1905-1914 with a horror atmosphere that is hidden from the view of the common people. In this version of earth, magic still exists in a limited form and the players will create heroes to investigate suspicious events and battle evil supernatural foes and their malevolent plots.

Envision western cowboy heroes battling zombies in mines, archeologists investigating tombs in Egypt, British soldiers weeding out voodoo cults in Jamaica, Arctic explorers seeking out the Yeti, City detectives investigating strange crimes, etc... It is an ongoing campaign that focuses on role-playing, investigation and horror.  That isn't to say there isn't combat, it just isn't the primary focus.

The 1905 campaign year ended on 12/31/08 and we had 23 modules for it that were set in Russia, Japan, Roumania, France, Gibraltar, England, Africa, Australia and the good 'ol USA.  Players interacted with historic figures such as Rasputin, Henry Ford, JP Morgan, Tsar Nicholas, Cochise, and Mata Hari. There are 20 modules for 1906.  Modules sold separately from the campaign and monster books.

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.
