Watermarked PDF + Hardcover B&W Book

Behind the bright lights, beneath fuming factories and above dirigible skies, at fey masquerades, or off in exotic lands... mysteries whirl, eldritch magic unfolds, ghoulish tentacles slither, and angels and demons still struggle in battle for our eternal souls.

Join the adventure in a fantasy gilded age of electrotech!

Inside this 284-page game book, you will discover:

  • Familiar d20 rules with splendid simplifications for rapid play.
  • Colorful races: barbaric, exotic, and cosmopolitan.
  • A bevy of classes including the artificer, cleric, gunslinger, medicant, pathfinder, and witch, among others.
  • Ancient deities of all persuasions, and means to access their power.
  • A wondrous trove of steamgear, electrotech, potions, scrolls, spellships, symbionts, and more.
  • Themes such as the believer, protector, and traitor that silo awards along coherent and compelling narrative paths.

Radiance RPG blends the best of editions of the world's most popular role-playing game. You may choose to focus on a fantasia of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. You can even play in a pseudo-scientific future! Alternatively, the system is meaty and flexible to support any campaign setting you may imagine.

Options and simplicity of design have never been so well presented. A book that would easily be worth a price for free that contains literally (not figuratively) dozens of classes. Races for whatever your style is (two types of goblins, kenku, and ps [...]

I haven't yet had a chance to play a session so this is just on impressions. Overall this looks very intriguing, the leveling system is different but seems solid, I like the idea of using armor as DR and attacks target your reflex, makes the player dec [...]

Have had the books for a while now, but not the chance to play. However, a game run at our FLGS every week and the players have a great time. I have enjoyed reading through the books. It seems like a cool system. [...]

What I have read so far, has given me a positive impression. As fluff is mostly implied through mechanics in this book, I cannot give say anymore then d&d mild eberron likeness(Steampunk, industrialism, victorian?, pulpish?). I like that magic has [...]

This is by far a product of ridiculous quality for the price! As a publisher myself, I couldn't believe what I was looking at when I saw it. This book is not only thorough, but very well laid out. The art is more than competent, and the writing fluid. [...]

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.
