The download links below are for the following resources:

Bibliography of African Explorer's Books
This document lists publications by African explorers from the period relevant to the Dark Continents RPG. Many can be found as text files on the internet, some are still in publication and can be purchased through a reputable bookstore or online via Amazon.

Dark Continent Character Sheet
My own take on the Dark Continent Character sheet - closely resembles the original from the book, but presented on a clear background, printer friendly and ready to print.

Dark Continent Expedition Sheet
Similar to the Character Sheet, this is simply my take presented in a simple printer friendly format, ready to print and play. A simple record of everything you need to keep a simple record of your expedition, from its patron to the marching order.

Pre-Generated Character Set
A zip file containing seven regenerated characters, and character backgrounds. They were created specifically for use with the excellent Captives Of Abyssinia scenario from the GM's guide in mind, but are suited to any similar expedition and are ideal for a set of players new to the game providing a balanced group. Each character comes with a brief description and then an outline of their personal motivations as well as a list of equipment which they possessed prior to outfitting the expedition.
