            The world of Glimpse the Beyond is very much like the real world on the surface. Countries, politics, major religions and popular culture are virtually indistinguishable from the world outside your window. Beneath the normal facade of daily life, lurking in the shadows and hiding under the cover of night, dark forces reach into the world trying desperately to get a foothold. Most humans never encounter these dark forces. Of those few that do, the majority are driven mad.

            Some rare humans seek out the metaphysical truths behind these dark forces. Labeling themselves Magi, these rare individuals study the arcane arts in an attempt to understand and possibly control that which Should Not Be. Some Magi seek personal power. Others strive for understanding. Many concern themselves only with survival in a world that is far more dangerous than any of their friends and family realize. A brave few fancy themselves heroes, fighting to keep the darkness at bay on behalf of their fellow man.

         Glimpse the Beyond is a Role-Playing Game in which players assume the roles of Magi. One player, called the Guide, crafts a story set in this world, using the rules in this book.

         Glimpse the Beyond contains all the rules you will need to create characters and craft stories of magick, wonder and cosmic horror. This book includes a brief overview of the setting,
complete rules on Ritual Magick and descriptions for several supernatural creatures that are waiting in the darkness to prey upon humanity.

         Glimpse the Beyond uses the Myriad RPG rules as a basic starting point. New rules include:

  • Streamlined combat rules.
  • New rules for spellcasting and Ritual Magick.
  • New rules for supernatural creatures with ten ready to use monsters including the meme-inspired Slender Man and the Lovecraftian Deep Ones.
  • New Boons and Flaws.

Glimpse the Beyond was written and developed by Travis Legge.

I want to make this clear, I am reviewing based almost solely on the rules contents of the book. I love trying out new RPG's, and I purchase a number of them just to give them a spin without intending to ever run a full multi-session campaign. This boo [...]

Setting info was thin, rules seem alright. The 3d-rendered cheesecake photos didn't seem to fit the attempted tone & frankly made me embarrassed to be reading it. [...]

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.
