Athirat Rising

Watermarked PDF

A naive and impressionable young man has become attached to Eternity, an eccentric punk and latest belle of London's underground music scene. Now he's disappeared, Eternity's music has taken a strange turn towards the otherworldly and Eternity himself has been preaching about the coming of a mystical force to claim the world for itself. Along with his small cabal of contacts, including a tattooist who can turn his designs into powerful wards and sigils and an ex-cop hallucinogen dealer. Eternity plans to build the ultimate instrument to allow his strange god to materialise.

Athirat Rising is a character-driven investigation into the disappearance of Christopher Foster a wannabe punk in London. Features include:

- Eccentric characters with identifiable tics and traits, strengths and weaknesses to help GMs  bring them to life and experience the weirder members of London's underground.

- Tattoo based magic with tips and ideas for incorporating it into your game along with villain's that utilise it

- Grimy and atmosphere-rich locations from Eternity's otherworldly apartment that is starting to dissociate from our reality to the Dirty Palm, the watering hole for many of the less desirable and outright nasty members of the scene.

-Handy Character Reference Sheet and Handouts for the players

This scenario is ideal for 2-5 investigators and is set in modern day London. The scenario is system free, though guidance is provided on running all characters and encounters. The adventure focuses on player interaction and puzzle solving and should be enjoyable for any group looking for an investigative game to run for an evening.


Recommended Systems: Any system designed to emulate a real-world/urban fantasy setting should be able to run this scenario with few issues. Atlas Games' Unknown Armies, White Wolf's World of Darkness and Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu all work well and Pelgrane Press' GUMSHOE system would work to emphasise the investigative elements.

Content Warnings: This product contains much drug use and discussion of hallucinations and unreality as well as violence, due to the nature of the setting and genre.

Product Information
File Size:
1 MB
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.
