In a world haunted by underground terrors and raging Colossi, people are in awe of the Chosen Ones who walk among them.
These chosen few, the Vasalli, are blessed with powerful Gifts, wielding powers mere mortals can only dream about. But with all their mystical talents, they are still human at heart—and humans are fickle and volatile. While some choose to uphold the balance, others seek to disrupt it, using their powers for their own goals.
The end result is chaos.
Come to Liboria, city of a thousand islands and one colossal shadow towering over them. Discover what lies underground, stop the threat, and decide on the future of the city!

Pick of the Week
The Concert in Flames is the complete guide to Europe for the Victoriana setting, an alternate history of steam and magic. From the Rock of Gibraltar to the steppes of Russia, from a Kingdom of Giants to the Boot of Italy, this book is packed with information about the nooks and crannies of a fantastical Victorian Europe.
But that’s not all, for it also contains the titular adventure—a five-part, city-hopping romp that takes the adventurers from Paris to Vienna, Budapest, and beyond! There’s a continent-spanning conspiracy afoot that threatens to shake the very order of Europe and cast it down in flames: Can the adventurers find out what’s going on and put a stop to it before it’s too late?
This 160-page book contains the following:
- A gazetteer of Victoriana Europe, detailing the government, society, and key locations of each kingdom and empire, and providing plot hooks aplenty
- Guidance for creating European characters
- Notes on the pantheons of Europe, from the Norns to the Slavic Archon Chernobog
- New spells and equipment, from firearms to the crystal blades of Andorra.
- New monsters and creatures (from the Ciarpans of Venice to Russian wyverns)
- Four new sapients to play, from Giants to Harpies
- A multi-part adventure set across the length and breadth of Europe

Other Featured Titles
Dark is the underworld. Darker are the lands of the Shadow Elves.
Far beneath the rugged, broken lands, even deeper than the deepest caverns of the trolls, live these pale-faced warriors. Their law is that of their Immortal Rafiel, and their mystical strength that of their Soul Crystals. Together, they will guide the people of the shadows to the lands under the sun.
GAZ13 "The Shadow Elves" (1990), by Carl Sargent and Gary Thomas, is the thirteenth book in the "GAZ" series of Gazetteers for the Known World. GAZ1 "The Grand Duchy of Karameikos" (1987) and GAZ3 "The Principalities of Glantri" (1987) are universally recognized as the best books in the GAZ series, but "The Shadow Elves" has gotten the most positive attention of the later books.

Also of Note
Welcome to the first in a new line of game-related products from Skirmisher Publishing LLC and d-Infinity Online—Oddities!
Oddities are the little touches that fill up the corners of lives. In our mundane world, they might be limited to old, chewed pencils, unused key-fobs, or a half-finished decorative spoon collection awaiting the Grand Canyon and Mount Rushmore.
In the worlds of our imagination, however, they can be so much more!
What oddities might be found in the halls, on the walls, or occupying the shelves of a Creepy Old House? Let’s find out...
Oddities is intended to aid GM creativity, turning possibly bland areas or gaming episodes into something more.
In the world of Victorious, the Broadmoor Asylum treats and contains the mentally ill and criminally deranged members of the Superhuman race.
Sent in on a secret mission, the players must determine who is more insane: the patients or the doctors!
Patients of the asylum claim the doctors are stealing their powers; meanwhile a series of murders plagues the asylum. The bodies seemingly appear with no clue of where they came from or who was responsible. The asylum itself seems to respond to the madness, with patients and staff witnessing weird visions. Meanwhile, a gifted inmate warns that doomsday approaches.
Who can be believed? Is the danger real, or is it just in the heroes’ minds? Can the newly insane stop those responsible for the madness... or will they simply succumb?
