[Minion fires a gun. The minion’s boss guts him personally in one quick motion.] “You fool! You’ll damage the book! Its power will be mine! Use your fists and your blades men!”


The Beckoning is a single room map where study of a book from ancient times is being performed in a universe guided by science. This map mixes fantasy with science fiction.  This product includes a 360-degree panoramic view of the Beckoning. The room is open to the stars above.


The Beckoning is intended for use in science fiction games that mix in fantasy. 


The Beckoning is a great set up for a puzzle/investigation for the Player Characters. They could be playing the part of the research team to figure out the tome and the strange glowing orbs. The Player Characters must translate the book to figure out how the room works. It is up to the Game Master what exactly happens when they do figure it out. Could this room’s four portals lead to other worlds under certain conditions such as a proper alignment of the stars? Can the globes be used to project a star pattern above with the appropriate alignment? Are the globes themselves maps of stars that could lead to a science fiction adventure trying to find out what happened to the culture that created the room?


A slightly different adventure is one in which the Player Characters are hired by the research team as mercenaries to be their security. In this scenario, enemies who want the tome and artifacts lie in wait for them to figure out their secrets, and then attack when they discovery how the room works. Game Masters might want to keep the Player Characters on their toes by sending scouts to watch their progress, giving them a chance to notice someone is watching and spying on them. When they finally do attack, the Player Characters need to keep the research team protected and defeat the enemies who want to steal the tome and the artifacts.

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.
