Kithbook: Selkie


This title has since been updated with revised text, delving more deeply into the rivalry between the Selkies and the noble Sidhe. 

A mysterious and rare kith, the Selkies are only found along the coasts and near big water. Dependent on the sea, they can somehow draw Glamour from it. They are equally dependent on their coats; which are necessary for a Selkie to experience Chrysalis. But from these coats they gain all manner of powers, including the ability to shift into seal form. 

Odd, to be sure. Even for the changelings. 

But what if the Selkies weren't actually changelings? Not to start with, at least. What if, back in the mists of ancient time, Gaia created the sealfolk as her ambassadors? Fleeing the War of Rage, Fera became fae, and act out of a heritage they now only grasp at. 

This book posits an alternate interpretation of the Selkies, in which the kith must straddle several different worlds to find their true place.

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.
