Eldritch Explorations in the Ancient Kingdom

WELCOME TO THE SECRETS OF  MOROCCO! This book provides players with a civil, geographical, cultural, political, and Mythos tour of Morocco during the 1920s and 1930s. Morocco will seem like another world, with its cultural differences and its customs being foreign to many Westerners of the 1920s.

The country is vast, and not every city can be covered in depth. This supplement details the political capital, Rabat, the economic capital, Casablanca, as well as Marrakech, one of Morocco's grandest cities. It provides broad outlines and maps for several other cities.

Morocco is a country of many languages and cultures. Some of the earliest settlements date back to the 12th century B.C. The earliest of these, a port city named Lixus, appears to have been settled by both Berbers and Phoenicians. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Spanish and French control the whole of the nation, while the majority of its native inhabitants find their overlords alien. Investigators of the 1920s are quite likely to experience culture shock, unless they have traveled in such areas previously. The keeper should take advantage of this whenever possible. Exposing investigators to the sights, smells, sounds, and practices of human cities can be as adventurous as the exploration of unknown cities.

The best way to use this book is as a reference for scenarios or campaigns set in North Africa. Secrets of Morocco covers several sites, including Rabat, Casablanca, Marrakech, the Rif and Atlas mountains regions, and the Sahara.

Format

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.
