A land of mystery and ancient secrets, subjugated by the power of Empire. India, the jewel in Britain’s imperial crown.

It is a land that has brought the British riches and tribute for many years, managed by the vast British East India Company. The subcontinent has fascinated the British, influencing their art, science and even cuisine. However, it is a land they cannot hope to understand as they continue to hold its beauty in an iron grip.

For all their power and magic, there are forces in India that the colonial powers can scarce imagine. Deep in the hidden temples and ancient cities lie ancient secrets from a time before the polite divisions of Order and Chaos. Dark cults harness forgotten magic to do battle with the invaders. Mysterious secrets from the dawn of time wait after millennia to be released upon the world once more.

Welcome to India, where nothing is as it seems… except the darkness.

In this book you will find:

  • A complete guide to the fascinating country of India in the Victorian age
  • Comprehensive detail on the culture, castes, varna and religions of this mysterious country to help both Gamemasters and players understand the particulars of 19th century Indian culture

  • A description of the British East India Company, the corporate power that controls the country on behalf of the very distant British government, and how it seeks to take greater power and autonomy from the crown

  • Expanded character options for both Indian characters and the colonial powers who rule them, useful for adventures set in India itself or even in the streets of London

  • A campaign that takes the characters into the bloody and terrible revolution, ‘The Indian Mutiny’

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.
