Misguided Ambitions - An Introduction to Earthdawn Third Edition


Before science, before history, an era of magic existed in our world's dim past. Magic flowed freely, touching every aspect of the lives of men and women of the Namegiver races. It was an age of heroes, an age of fantastical deeds and mythical stories. It was the Age of Legend. Now, bold heroes from across Barsaive band together to fight for life and freedom against the remaining Horrors and the oppressive Theran Empire, which seeks to bend the rebellious province again to their yoke. Through noble deeds and sacrifice, the heroes of the world forge Barsaive's future, arming themselves for their daunting task with powerful magical spells and treasures.

Misguided Ambitions is an introduction to Earthdawn Third Edition, a fantasy roleplaying game in a world of high adventure, high magic, and terrible danger. Inside, you will find everything you need to play your first adventure--just add a couple of dice and your friends!

I've been trying to read this on my Kindle DX, and because of some contrast issues between the text and the page background, it has been difficult. This down load may be better if you do most of your reading on a color screen, than a black and white, [...]

Earthdawn is a great change of pace if you’ve played in the ‘traditional fantasy realm’ for a while. Barsaive is a place that has been in hiding for hundreds of years as the prophecy of the Horrors came to pass. As these titanic creatures of mali [...]

Does a good job of intriguing the potential GM, notably with the scarce background elements. The system appears to be somewhat complicated, but one can assume this "steps" thing eventually becomes habitual enough to use rapidly. [...]

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.
