This Zone Compendium for "Mutant: Year Zero" game is translated from the Russian original "Marble Marshes" made by Studio 101

The grey sky had been crying tears of drizzling cold rain over the ground for several days now. Each step was more difficult than the last, with the swampy ground sucking at the travellers’ feet and vyak-vyaks circling overhead as mementoes to dark thoughts, singing their vile song. Agafon limped, one leg all but useless after an unlucky fight with a razorback. Mora helped him along, but he kept on repeating: “I won’t make it far.” “The hell you won’t,” Mora responded in a growling tone. Orpho, Agafon’s dog, smelled the air with a loud huff and whimpered. “We make it to the Bridge and then we rest. It’ll be great, you’ll see!” Mirza was an optimist and it was infectious, coming from her. She knew how to find the words and how to say them, even if the situation was dire. “And if it isn’t all that great, I can always make you a scrap leg,” Ignat offered, trying to help. “Look!” Mirza raised her hand, pointing skyward as the sun broke through the grey tapestry of clouds and instantly reflected off a large, golden ray crowning an Ancient building…

Zone Compendium “Marble Marshes” is a supplement to “Mutant: Year Zero” that lays bare the secrets of the Ancients’ Northern Capital (inspired by Saint-Petersburg). Within this book are four new special Sectors, tied up in a single storyline, a map of the Marble Marshes, new monsters, Ark projects, artefacts, and rules for forklift and battle car fights!

  • Special sector “The Bridge”. The PCs dive right into an interconnected conflict, concerning politics and power. Whose side will they take? Will they be able to stop the bloodshed or will they become its cause?
  • Special sector “Two Crosses”. This civilized settlement seems to have everything under control. It hosts a Tradehouse, a Gamehouse, and a Renthouse where tired travelers can spend the night. However, a schism is brewing amongst the Playful God’s followers…
  • Special sector “Big Build”. Big Build offers the promise of something grandiose. Lights are seen in the night, slaves are gathered, scrap and artifacts are hauled there. They say that the “Northern Star,” whatever that is, rises over Big Build.
  • Special sector “The Seaport Lands”. They say that the Steel Caverns of those lands are home to speaking animals who learned how to talk to their riding cars and see the future…
  • Rumors. Each sector holds its own rumor section that will allow the GM to give out story hooks about events, places, and monsters within the Marble Marshes.
  • New artifacts, including a tabletop game, crossbow with a revolving cylinder, and a lifeboat. Rules for playing tabletop games.
  • Unique events, mishaps, and landscape tables.
  • New People’s projects, for example, chess, pigeon post, tabletop roleplaying games, moving ark, etc.
  • Nine new monsters, including the Megapigeons, bloodsuckers, and vyak-vyaks.
  • Rules for running forklift and battle car tournaments, as well as rules for building and “taming” your own battle car!

This looks very promising (and high quality production values), despite the steep price tag.

Will give a more thorough review when I have read it all.

A couple of things:

There are still references to "page XXX". This should be fixed.
Also, could you include a high-res map of the zone for VTT play?

I'm sure I cleared out all XXs. Zone map included on the last spread is not high-res enough?

Ugh. I missed that one.
A quick search found 21 instances of (see p. XX).

Since there is no table of contents in the preview, could somebody tell me what the page count is and what the chapter content is? It really would be interesting to guide my friends through the ruins of the City-on-Neva-River. Thank you.

85 pages. About 15-20 pages per Zone.
6 pages for appendixes with new enemies and projects.

It is Free League Workshop content, so it's digital-only.

Rule System(s)
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.
