Nominated for a 2014 ENnie Award for Best Electronic Book!

Corporia is 'knights in shining Armani.' It's what happens when you mix the age of King Arthur Pendragon and Camelot with a spoonful of Torchwood, add a pinch of cyberpunk, a dash of Joss Whedon's Angel, and a sprinkling of Shadowrun. If you enjoy these, you're going to love Corporia.

Corporia is a 211-page tabletop role-playing game of genre-bending fiction and futuristic urban fantasy written by Origins and ENnie award-winning author Mark Plemmons. In Corporia, you take on the roles of reborn Knights of the Round Table or their supernaturally-powered allies, fighting an invisible war for justice in the struggle between otherworldly Chaos magics and the oppressive Order of the ruling mega-corporations!

Highlights

  • One simple, unified game mechanic for all abilities, including fighting, spellcasting, and hacking! Simply add your character's Core Value rank + one relevant Skill rank + the high die from a 2d6 roll, and compare the total result to a Target Number.
  • Hackers can bring their allies into virtual worlds with them; no one gets left out!
  • Spellcasters can cast whatever they can imagine, limited only by their skill rank in any of eight schools of magic - and all 64 sample spells can be easily modified at will!
  • Four personality traits (three public, one private) keep situations interesting and provide points for permanent and temporary improvements, supplementing the core dice mechanics without becoming the main aspects of the rules!
  • Metal melee weapons are more effective against monsters than firearms, keeping swords and daggers relevant even in a future of X-Calibre energy pistols and glowing raypiers!
  • An innovative, modern design style in a book full of page-turning concepts!
  • Extensively bookmarked and linked PDF with a fillable character sheet for the players, a fillable mission log worksheet for the Director (Game Master)!

RIYL (recommended if you like): Angel, Corporation, Cyberpunk, Night Watch, Shadowrun

Are the Quick and Full-size previews not showing anything for anyone else?

They're working fine for me (using Chrome, and on my phone as well). I've had that problem before when viewing other books. I'm not sure if it's a browser cache issue or just a DriveThru hiccup.

The POD is coming soon! My proof copy is in the mail to me now.

Some notes on the latest PDF and POD:

DriveThru uses Lightning Source (LSI) for their POD products. Because of this, I had to slightly reformat the page trim to fit 7x10, and add one blank page at the end of the book for LSI's own internal bar code. However, because the page count has to be divisible by 4, I had to either delete 1 page, or add 4. I didn't want to delete any content, so I added 4. The end of the book now includes a 2-page "cryptid scene investigation" guide for players, and a 1-page mission log/adventure creation worksheet for the Directors (GMs), plus the bar code page.

Because I had to make all of these tweaks anyway, and because my graphic design skills have improved quite a bit since 2013, I replaced some pieces of art. You can see a couple of examples on my blog:

Likewise. I was only able to back the kickstarter for a nominal amount for financial reasons, but I'm looking forward to getting a print copy now.

Any chance we can get the Supplements (Agents of Change, New Hires, Familiars) in a print on demand. I would happily buy a compendium of those expansions and I bet other players would as well.

Shamefaced that I didn't reply to this before now. I did release a print-on-demand compendium of those - it's called "Once and Future" and you can get it here.

Are there plans to offer this as a POD?

Yes, there is a POD version coming, though there's no release date yet. The original limited edition hardcover (and PDF) were formatted in a comic book trade paperback size (6.75 x 10.125), and has to be adjusted to fit the 7x10 POD book size limits.

Please note that you may get a weird error message when using this PDF file. The message is "This document enabled extended features in Adobe Reader. The document has been changed since it was created and use of extended features is no longer available. Please contact the author for the original version of this document."

The fix for this is discussed here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/963834, but note that Mark, will have to fix the document, since as a customer reader you can't. I wonder if the drivethru watermark process caused Acrobat to think the document had been changed.

The upshot of this problem is that you can't use the fill-able character sheet.

Ashley,

Thanks for letting me know! I hoped that removing the watermarking option, among other changes, would fix this but no luck so far. I'll keep working on it. In the meantime, I believe that upgrading to Adobe Reader 11 on your computer may fix the problem.

The character sheet was fixed the week of March 11th.

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.
