From the shadows of the innocent dead…

“Curselings bleed into our world, watching and waiting from inside pools of absence where the light grows dim. First an innocent must die and their shadow, not their corpse, must touch the ground. They can be hung from some rafters or the branches of a tree, or drown in clear shallow water which the light streams through, so long as their body does not touch the earth but leaves a black and clear-edged shadow there. Only then can a Curseling come through the shadow like a door and clamber out…”

Fire on the Velvet Horizon is a monster book like no other. Created from the minds of Patrick Stuart and Scrap Princess, it completely changed our ideas of what a monster book could be. It is an art book, a game book and a weird fiction book rolled into one. Even one of today’s great fantasy writers had something to say about it:

'Superpositioning with strange panache, Velvet Horizon is an (outstanding) indie role-playing-game supplement, and an (outstanding) example of experimental quasi-/meta-/sur-/kata-fiction. Also a work of art. Easily one of my standout books of 2015.’

China Miéville.

The book is only available in print and contains no stats, so it remains a bit of an obscurity in the gaming world. So today, we are honored and excited to bring a selection of these creatures to your game table, with the approval of its creators. Every creature is an adventure waiting to happen!

This PDF contains the descriptive text for one of these creatures, and some of the art, as they appear in Fire on the Velvet Horizon. In addition, the PDF includes game statistics for the creature using our own ELEMENTAL game system. With its unparalleled flexibility and “Fiction First” approach, ELEMENTAL is the perfect system for bringing these strange and wonderful creations to life.

ELEMENTAL is a remarkably fast and flexible RPG for any character, any setting, any story. Go to the Gildor Games main page to see the expanding line of ELEMENTAL products. The Complete Guide gives you everything you need to play, and the Discovery Guide lets you check out the game and even try it for free.

Format
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.
