“We came in peace, as representatives of the United Ghoul Nations, looking to trade. I’ve got rights, like any Child of Atam! You can’t hold me or my people here! So no, bigshot elf guy, I’m not gonna tell you where we’re from, and I’m not gonna put our home address down on any starcharts for you, but hear me out:You wanna know about where I came from? Well, our planet had a little… series of incidents… not too long back. So let me tell you its not all ice cream trucks and blueberry bushes there anymore. It sucks. Not much water, not much food, so not many happy livingtype folks anymore- and the ones that are left tear up the wasteland like it owes them money. No good to treat a planet like that after you already choked it to death, but hey, that’s just my two cents. I told you straight, we’re just seeing what’s out there, cause its gotta be betta than endless gamma. Then we bumped into you very fine people. Its not our fault we look like this. You think I wanna wear a face like a tire tread? War made us. I’m not going to tell you where to find my people so you can bring another war to unmake us. Get stuffed, pretty boy. Not one of us is gonna tell you pointy ears jack.”

– Recorded testimony of Captain Rey Muertos, of the UGN Exploratory Vessel Fossil II, a sentient 120ft kindori-bone yacht skinned-over with rubber and crewed by 30 self-proclaimed “True Ghouls” from unknown wildspace system. Undead subjects terminated with prejudice after interview, and the sentient undead vessel scuttled by Armada. Signed, Admiral Taernleaf, Elven Imperial Fleet (1444DR).

Meet the True Ghouls, an engimatic post-human race clawing their way back from self-induced Apocalypse with:

- A PC racial option with 3 subcultures: the mainstream LN Children of Atam, the fanatical NE Purifiers, and eccentric NG druidic sect the Naturalists. 

Lore, standard encounters and crew compositions for each of the True Ghoul subcultures.

(A True Ghoul PC's Recommended Class Level Adjustment is +1)

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.
