A Society of Unlikely Gentlemen Quickstart

Suggested Price $1.09

This is the year 1895. Five years ago, the city of Atlantis rose again from the depths of the ocean. At the same time, several portals appeared on Earth and allowed safe passage to Venus and Mars.

Scientific marvels pop-up everywhere, four-armed martian ambassadors walk the streets of London while Venusian amazons guide big game hunters through the jungles of their planet.

Empires still scheme and fight among themselves, looking for new technologies to gain the advantage over their rivals.

You play adventurers and explorers, always looking for new scientific discoveries, uncharted territories or lost treasure, to quench their thirst of knowledge, fortune and fame.

One player described it as "The adventures of Captain Future in the 19th century"

No magic, no fantasy, this is scientific romance!

You'll find 100 professions for your character, from Gurkha soldier to Steam Cyborg!

The game system is quite simple : 2D6 + relevant attribute vs a difficulty of 7.

The final version of the game will have illustrations, a professionnal layout and added content. So if you like the game, let us know!

This game is awesome and full of potential. It doesn't waste time in giving you the tools you need to run a fun game of pulpy scientific romance. However, I would love to see it expanded, perhaps with further worldbuilding, adventures and tools.

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.
