Blood in the Canals

Watermarked PDF

The year is 1630 A.D. and death has come to Venice. The plague has returned to the Queen of the Adriatic once again, tainting this beautiful floating city with fear and placing it on the precipice of destruction. When a member of the Council of Ten is found dead by strange and mysterious causes, suspicions rise that something fouler than any worldly illness might be lurking within the city.

A monster beyond all imagination and reason haunts the canals of Venice, bringing with it a sinister plot of political intrigue and chaotic destruction that threatens to destroy the Republic forever.

You are a member of the Crossed Keys, an ancient order devoted to rooting out the dark horrors of the world. Answering the call of the Council of Venice, you will bring your skills and talents to face a horror, unlike anything you have faced before.

Blood In The Canals requires Fate Core to play and a copy of The Fate Horror Toolkit is recommended, but not needed. This 57-page adventure includes:

  • 5 Unique Mantles designed to showcase the talents and training of members of the Crossed Keys.

  • The Hunting Track, a new narrative timing mechanism designed for “creature of the week” style adventures or mysteries.

  • A collection of scene examples with mechanics, aspects, and suggestions on how to use them in your adventure.

  • A cast of NPCs and adversaries to populate your story.

  • A brief overview of the history of Venice and the current time period, as well a look into the secret organization The Crossed keys.

  • Character sheets, maps, and play aids to help bring your adventure to the table.

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.
