Even now I dream of claws and fangs and of floating in a vast sea of evil, my lips only a fraction above the surface. At other times I dream of being devoured from the inside out, my skin only minutes from crumbling away to reveal my true self as a Horror ...
--Adesian Skoln, from "Regarding the Horrors, Their Origins, and Their Nature"

Horrors offers a chilling, intimate view of the astral-spawned creatures that ravaged the world of Earthdawn during the Scourge. Presented as a compilation of documents recording what is known of Horrors both great and small, this book provides players and gamemasters with a unique perspective on these abominations: what they are, what they do, and how and why they continue to attack the inhabitants of Barsaive.

This sourcebook describes more than twenty Horrors, including fifteen of the most powerful and dangerous of their kind. Horrors also offers new Horror powers and abilities, clarifications of existing Horror powers, a new Discipline, the Horror Stalker, and guidelines for using Horrors and their deadly spawn in adventures and campaigns.

FASA's books had top notch setting and story elements, this book is no different. The excellent art and story-telling via narration greatly aid if you would like to use the horrors in a different system. The scan is excellent quality. I w [...]

The emphasis on storytelling in Earthdawn and Shadowrun, rather than pages of cookie-cutter monster stat blocks, make even the older books easy to adapt to modern systems. [...]

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.
