Brightsword Character Dossier


About the Product

Welcome to the first of six example characters from the character generation chapter of Modern Knights. Our first is the chargen signature character Brightsword. Brightsword is a straightforward, newly minted second generation hero whose father was one of the movers and shakers of the setting in the 60s and 70s.

About Modern Knights and the Toolkit System

Modern Knights is part of the new breed of Supers RPG, despite arriving on the market years before some of the more well known. You can trace its ancestry to the Better Games Free-Style Role-Play systems arriving in the Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer relaunch in the early 90s.

Using the Toolkit system you can create virtually any power seen in comics past and present without spending hours  balancing out a point system. Modern Knights character generation is entirely concept based, allowing you to create the character you envision rather than having to compromise with the game mechanics. The innovative sliding damage scale allows vastly differential power levels without an increase in complexity or dice rolls. Physical powerhouses can walk alongside high skilled normals and ancient mystics.

The PDF download is corrupted. Cannot open the file. This is the same problem with the Darkshield PDF. Can you upload a new file?

It still hiccups. No other download on DTRpgNow is doing this.

I think I found this. The watermarking process was somehow damaging the PDF. Shouldn't have even been enabled. Can you try again?

Hey guys. I'm unsure why I didn't spot your reporting this issue. I've updated the file - could you let me know if this works for you?

This product is defective and does not work. It's a PDF but there seems to be some sort of error with it, so no matter how many times you download it and open it, it's corrupted.

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.
