"Bhima flew with his Vimana on an enormous ray which was as brilliant as the sun and made a noise like a storm of thunder." ? The Veda Texts

Ancient Sanskrit documents tell of mysterious, advanced vehicles called Vimanas that seem remarkably similar to modern aircraft and UFOs. According to the archaic Veda texts, Vimanas possessed "all the power of the universe" and could fly to other planets. They were armed with powerful weapons and they could become invisible at the will of the pilot. Surprisingly, the Hindu scholars wrote extensively about how to construct and pilot a Vimana, including details on the machine's mercury engine, effective combat maneuvers, and how to survive a crash-landing. Hundreds of pages of information about these machines can also be found in many writings from other ancient cultures as well, providing an astounding amount of information on Vimanas. Unfortunately, many of the raw materials necessary to build one of these fantastic machines have been lost in translation... until now!

Read about how characters in your game can hunt down the clues to these ancient machines, decipher the instructions, find the rare materials, and actually build one of their own--before the Nazis do.

Of course, if your heroes are not mechanically inclined, it is also possible to find one of these ancient war machines already constructed. There might be one hidden somewhere in Egypt, protected by Atlantian curses and a dungeon full of deadly traps. There might also be some Vimanas in Tibet. Unless they've already been stolen by Nagas who are planning to sell them to the Nazis!

  • 5 Photos of Vimanas

1948: The Vimana is a short product detailing a new type of vehicle for Modern d20, from Bloodstone Press. The zipped file is 0.22 megabytes in size, containing a single PDF file that is marginally larger. The PDF has a non-hyperlinked table of contents [...]

Impressively researched and solidly designed information on the supposed ancient Indian flying machines, that takes seriously what can be found in the original literary sources, rather than how it might fit in with some campaign setting or ruleset's pet [...]

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.
