100 Books to Find on or About the New World

Publisher: ChaosiumBooks can be a source of useful and important knowledge, but libraries are not filled with books that can be described as such. Shelves will also hold books that are less useful; religious tracts, legends, histories, biographies, memoirs, scientific works and fiction. This supplement adds 100 different books that a GameMaster can use to flesh out a bookshelf. All the titles, apart from proper names, are given in English, even though the authors hail from different countries of the Pirate Nations, for ease of use. A large number of the books are written by Théans and few by those of the Kuraq Empire. This is due to Théans having printing presses, and the Aztlani not, and the Kuraq Empire lacking a written language. Whether or not an individual book has anything useful in-game is up to the GM; books can be founts of misinformation as well as knowledge.This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.Here are some sample results:
Hubris: The Tale of Franco Gonzalez by Jose Miguel Baltierra (On the Castillian explorer who was driven out of the Kuraq Empire; fairly accurate and utterly despised by Gonzalez)
Human Sacrifice in the New World by Sancha de Alonso (A deliberately misleading book that appears to suggest that human sacrifice is still being carried out)
Identifying Natural Medicines by Mahtlactli-once Malinalli (A codex with illustrations of the various plants that can be harvested for medicine in the jungles of the Nahuacan Alliance)
Interpreting Aztlani Astrology by Rinaldo Villanova (A Théan book attempting to explain astrological use in the New World)
Judiciary of the Nahuacan Alliance by Anastazy Šimonis (A Théan look at how the legal system of the Alliance works)
One page is the front cover, one the front matter and one is ads.Price: $1.25
