In the frozen north of the Canadian Arctic, ancient horrors prowl the tundra. They are the monsters and bogeymen of Inuit folktales. They prey upon small, unwary communities isolated from the world-at-large, the remote and unforgiving environment providing cover for their activities. They are the shadows that fall across the snow.

Angakkuit is a role-playing game about fighting monsters in the frozen north. The player characters hunt these creatures across mountain ranges and desolate tundra. They scour small settlements and cities. Wherever the shadows fall across the snow, the player characters follow. The characters' calling is not an easy one. In addition to the monsters of the north, they must contend with an unforgiving environment. Winter brings the threat of blizzards and snowstorms as well as hypothermia and frostbite. Deep snow makes travel difficult and thin ice, avalanches, and other natural hazards can be as deadly as any monster.

I'm seeing the POD listed. Is it not showing up when you are viewing the page?

Best regards,

There is a preview available off their site.

"Angakkuit uses a card-based resolution system. Each player and the GM
have their own deck of cards. To determine success or failure, players
draw cards from their deck and certain cards are
counted as successes, according to the character’s
abilities. Often, the players will be the only ones
who draw cards. However, for more difficult
actions, the GM draws cards to counter the players’

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.
