What is it About

The year is 1885 in England, but someone has already built an analytical engine that has reached technological singularity. The engine is a little box, powered by (probably) steam and clockwork, but it managed to upgrade its own intelligence, and did so over and over again, until it achieved super-intelligence. This device aspires to create the ideal world for the whole of humankind, and has devised a plan to do so, stretching hundreds of years into the future. Now it needs agents – clever and capable people – to act in the world on its behalf.

This is the first part of a stand-alone graphic novel, with a story that combines lighthearted action and humour with some heavier stuff, mostly a moral discussion. It features light steampunk, fun characters and semi-fantastical adventures, aimed at fans of action-adventure series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Warehouse 13 (the earlier seasons); Ocean’s Eleven meets Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes.

Where’s the Rest?

This kind of comics takes a loooong time to write, storyboard, sketch and ink, and we haven’t even decided about colouring yet. We hope to one day get back to it, and your encourgament and interest is key, so please consider posting a review.

Who Are We

Aviv Or has been drawing comics ever since the 90’s animated X-Men series showed her a brand new world of superheroic, fantastic, tights-wearing action adventure. She worked on several printed comics and a popular Israeli webcomics, illustrated books, board and card games and online social games, and she's currently working in Viber, illustrating some of those addictive stickers. Her portfolio and blog are here.

Eran Aviram is a game translator (D&D 3, 4, Pathfinder, Exalted, Dungeon World, others) and game editor (almost every major Israeli RPG sourcebook of the past few years). He's also been producing Israel's main RPG podcast, On the Shoulders of Dwarves, for more than 150 episodes (and counting). 

The both of us are behind the webcomic Up to Four PlayersIn celebration of our 100th strip, we made Singularity 1885 available for free. Please enjoy!

The Three Suggestions... series is meant to give players and GMs some interesting and roleplay-provoking ideas, for use in all sorts of settings. Each set of suggestions is also accompanied by a new or variant rule, for use in either Fifth Edition or Dungeon World.

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.
