Red Venus

Watermarked PDF

At the close of World War II, Russian commandos raid a secret German bunker in advance of American forces: their prize, a prototype V-5 rocket, powered by nuclear fission. The Space Race has begun... ten years earlier than in our own time.

Greetings, comrade, and welcome to the world of Red Venus: rocketpunk as seen through Eastern eyes. Play as brave cosmonauts, exploring a more habitable solar system with the aid of Soviet super-science. Beneath thick clouds, Venus seethes with hostile life; while on cold, arid Mars, the crumbling obelisks of a once-great civilisation confront thinning skies. Dangers both familiar and unknown await, as capitalist oppressors seek to exploit the cosmos; CIA agents lurk alongside alien horrors.

But other forces exist, dwarfing humanity in power: these ancients watch us with cold scrutiny, indifferent to our clashing ideologies. Perhaps one day mankind will need to unite against this common threat - if we don’t kill each other first.

A setting and adventures for the Everywhen RPG. Includes 5 pregens, blank character sheet and a adventure maps.

Long story short: this is a product to get.

I love Barbarians of Lemuria (and H+I), preferring Legendary edition to Mythic. I liked Everywhen for codifying a bunch of rules options but it was a little complicated for my test (I don't love Scale, for example). Red Venus - more than Blood Sundown - showcased for me what Everywhen could do and will keep me buying these products. Good art style, good length, and useful.

I'd love to know what's next in the development pipeline for BoL.

Thanks for your feedback.

We're not currently developing for BoL, just Everywhen. Full details of our planned Everywhen settings and supplements can be seen here -

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.
