Echoes in the Stream of Time: A Gothic Adventure Gamebook

Echoes in the Stream of Time: A Gothic Adventure Gamebook


In this story, you the reader make choices and take chances as you hunt evil’s spawn during the 1930s.

You are a young air force officer investigating horrors in a gray world at rest between terrible wars. This morning, a flight returned to base empty. Your mates and mentor are missing. By sleuthing and spells, can you solve the mystery? Can you face your past and attain your dreams? Will you survive an unsettling transformation stirring inside of you?

The stage is a royal air force base in an alternate world akin to Earth. You’ve got familiar electric conveniences but beyond the bright lights there’s magic, and monsters lurk ready to snatch the unwary. You’ve got allies: fellow junior officers Slacks and Mancy, civilian venturist Calv, vivid memories of your wise mentor Mage Greene, and an addled old man who knows the secrets of “pact spirits” that can lend you power.

This adventure gamebook is part fiction, part game. It’s for one reader -player or several. It’s organized as forty two scenes along a dramatic arc. Some scenes are optional or let you select from romantic options. All are harrowing, heart-breaking, or horrific.

Scenes are chock-full of rich description and dialogue, offer tactical choices, and deliver to you the consequences of failures and successes.

Features pact magic: the summoning of ancient broken spirits of yore.

This is a stand-alone product that requires at least one standard die (6-sides) and ideally a 20-sided die to resolve the many challenges throughout. To track your health, sanity, gear, and treasure, you get a simple character sheet that you can print.

This is book #2 in the ongoing Dark Prism series. Like book #1, you can implement the adventure using your favorite tabletop roleplaying game.

This gamebook is for ages 9+.

NOTE: Hardcopy and e-reader versions of this book available at Amazon. Alas, the DriveThruRPG printer no longer supports 8"x5.25" books.

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.
