Utopia Descending: Short Stories From The Lost Territories Book 1

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the Lost Territory of New Haven, CT.

In the year 2013, the world changed. Massive rifts called “Looking Glasses” tore through the fabric of reality all over the world. Millions of lives were lost as creatures from legend poured through the rifts and into our reality.

The catastrophic loss of human life would have been apocalyptic in scale if it weren’t for the efforts of world governments and companies. They contained the areas around the rifts, now known as the “Lost Territories.” This wouldn’t be possible, however, without the Pillars.

Tens of thousands of individuals with latent DNA began to transform into creatures from myth when the rifts opened. Now armed with advanced technology adapted from the rifts and supported by economic powerhouses around the world, these so-called Pillars have become humanity’s heroes in the battle for survial.

It has now been 33 years since the initial event, and human culture has adapted to living on the brink of destruction. Pillars are the world’s most interesting reality TV stars and media idols. Pillars legally exist with a status somewhere between that of enlisted military and property of the mega-corporations, with the quality of their life directly linked to their performance and ratings.

Here, we follow the stories of You-Star heroes who don’t normally have the center stage in the New Haven Lost Territories. 

This is a collection of short stories from the Utopia Descending universe, and not a stand alone game book. Each volume of the Lost Territories series will be a series of interlinked short stories from specific Lost Territories within the Utopia Descending universe that are canon for the RPG, ARG, and LARP universe.

Original electronic
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.
