Weird Tales of French Colonies in the New World

Watermarked PDF

In the New World, there have been all manner of new things. The French Colonies have had any number of events happen in the last century. Conflict with the English, the Oceans of Carribean becoming home to Merchant and Pirate alike, Colonies revolting from the Old World, and exploration across North America.

Who would have known just what could be found in these towns, from the busy streets of New Orleans to dark seas at night to the quite cold north?

Weird Tales of the French Colonies in the New World is the third volume in an ongoing series of zines created by an array of names you likely know and new names you likely don't. Each is a collection of material suitable for "Victorian" period Weird Tales (from the 18th to very early 20th Centuries)

Included in this volume is a mix of:

  • fiction of a pirate who may be immortal
  • an article with some stores where you could put Macguffins, or hold your rendevouz with that slightly shady character
  • a monster of what is now Canada, and a system-less module you could adapt to your preferred game system
  • a town plagued by a strange ghost canoe, set up for you to run in the system of your choice
  • an article with a mix of fact, myth, fiction, and plenty of space for the Weird with the journeys of Madoc
  • original art by Bri de Denann and Cristina Murphy

You can find the entire collection (as it grows) is here

Keep your eyes out for future volumes cover areas like  South-East Asia, the Subcontinent, and more as this zine dots across the world each month.

This project is a cooperative project with the proceeds split equitably between the contributors.

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.
