Steampunk Musha: The Explorer’s Guide to Rosuto-Shima


Steampunk Musha: The Explorer’s Guide to Rosuto-Shima

Where Industrialization and Tradition Collide in an Asian-Inspired Fantasy Setting

The Explorer’s Guide to Rosuto-Shima is a short guide to the lands and people of Rosuto-Shima, the fictional setting of Steampunk Musha. While not a complete setting, it offers a taste of the Steampunk Musha world and a few options for those interested in exploring “The Lost Island.” 

Steampunk Musha is a campaign setting for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game of a land in conflict with itself, seeking balance. Ancient traditions developed in natural isolation from other cultures are put at odds with an industrial revolution imported by Outsiders from beyond the Sea. A war-torn land enjoys a cold-war’s peace as the rulers of a dozen city-states vie to reform a once golden empire to their liking; some choosing tradition and magic, while others choose science and technology, and others still stranger things. New lines are being drawn as the tense peace is tested time and again as even everyone becomes caught-up in the confluence of a land in the midsts of a revolution

Since I'm Korean, inclusion of Korean culture piqued my interest. I'll be looking forward to many other Asian interpretation.

they will be included, and yes, they all will eventually be compiled and released for print, but not sure when. Depending on the sizes, some of the individual releases might be offered as print as well, but it will be determined with each release.

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.
