Description:

Comes with the PDF of Wild Talents Essential Edition, the complete rules, free.

This Favored Land is a sourcebook for the Wild Talents roleplaying game set during the American Civil War. Players take the role of The Gifted, ordinary people who -- by divine providence or pure chance -- have been granted extraordinary powers. Occasionally seen as saviors, they are more often scorned and hunted as sorcerers and demons, witches and charlatans.

Whether heroes or villains, The Gifted are forced by the superstitions of the day to hide from public scrutiny. But they can't escape their nation's greatest crisis. Whether they are spying for the Confederacy in Washington, riding with Quantrill in Missouri, or marching with Sherman through Georgia, The Gifted must make the difficult choice between using their powers and avoiding the dangers of discovery. If The Gifted can survive the ordeals of war, they -- like their nation -- will be changed forever.

Written by Allan Goodall and illustrated by Todd Shearer, This Favored Land includes everything you need for a thrilling Civil War campaign: Detailed rules adapting Wild Talents to the war; weapons and rules for the deadly injuries that made Civil War battles so infamous; an in-depth history of the Civil War; a complete scenario to begin play at once; and much more.

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.
