Description:

Shades of Earth is a world of where magic is the secret weapon and the grit of simple men and women make all the difference. Secret cabals and organization battle one another and the monsters they now know exist in a battle for who will control the world. It is not so clear who are the good or if someone is evil, only whether you trust them to fight by your side. In 1938, the world stands poised on the brink of war. Some rush towards it while others fight the rising tide. Which side do you want to be on?

Department 12, the newest of the secret organizations, has its roots in the League of Nations. It is a joint operation between the British and the United States. They hope to curb the rising forces of the Gestapo while learnign as much as they can as fast as they can. The Gestapo work to increase the power of the Reich, gather arcane objects and collecting vast pools of spiritual energy...by any means necessary. The Guard of Babur maintain their holy vigil against the Thuggees. The Thuggees, worshipers of Kali though destroyed in the 1800s, have bided their time, waiting for their numbers to grow. They are now poised to move. The Neter, an Egyptian cult, are pledged to guard the Gate of Ptah, a portal to other worlds. There numbers have waned but their power still protects the Gate. The Mafia and the Catholic Church battle themselves as much as any other force. The Church maintains two organizations, one dedicated to the irradiation of magic while another dedicated to its research. Through all of it, the most ancient of them all, the Clan of the Dragon watch as kingdoms rise and fall, petty rulers implement their plans. The fight the Japanese in China but maintain a much larger view of history and the future.

All of these groups pursue their own special agendas using agents and minions to do their will. Look into your heart and ask yourself, which side am I on?

The Iridium System is a combination of skill based flexibility and packages of skills in the form of classes. Shades of Earth is set in the 1930s with a focus on 1938.

Format
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.
