Emergence is an exciting, easy-to-learn roleplaying game that takes place on the Earth-like world of Kython.

Emergence blends elements your favorite games into a single cohesive setting.  The heart of the game world mostly resembles that of modern earth, but as you venture away from this comfortable and familiar center, different genre components shift in prominence.  High fantasy, sci-fi, horror, dark science, occult, and post apocalyptic settings all shine through in the final vision of the world.  

Through this interplay of genres you can insert all the fantastical elements that make you love roleplaying games, into a world that you already know.  This eliminates most of the learning curve of the setting, allowing you and your group to get into the action faster.  

Mechanically, Emergence is as rich and varied as the setting in which it takes place. Emergence places a high value on player choice.  You can customize nearly every facet of your character, along with his gear, vehicles, mounts and body.  Below are some of the options and features included in the Core Rulebook and that make Emergence the game you and your group will love for years to come:

  • Determine all rolls through a simple system using only three six-sided dice
  • Engage in an exciting, fast-moving combat system that encourages immersion and creative thinking
  • Gain a broad knowledge of Kython through background information for dozens of locales and governments
  • Create a unique racial makeup by combining elements of the four player races from a pool of over 50 racial traits
  • Represent your base experiences through 16 character backgrounds
  • Use diverse and broad skills to specialize while maintaining a sense of versatility
  • Construct incredibly diverse characters using specialized abilities from 33 talent trees and over 650 talents and benefits
  • Customize your equipment and vehicles through systems that allow thousands of combinations
  • Forge your body and spirit into whatever you can imagine using four complete systems for Augmentation—Cybernetics, Fleshweaving, Runescribing, and Magic Items
  • Garner advice and rules for creating environments, quests, adventures, and campaigns in the Game Mastering chapter
  • Create opponents and character companions using quick, simple rules that also allow for virtually unlimited combinations and possibilities

So grab some friends and some dice, and bring your imaginations………. Adventure Awaits!!!

I purchased both the hardcover and pdf. It is an "crunchier" system than I have seen in the last year, but am ok with that. I have wanted something similar to Shadowrun for a while and, from my brief read though of the PDF, this seems like [...]

I bought the hard copy and PDF. The game concept is good. It is a sensible mix of fantasy and technology, akin to shadowrun meets star gate. The rules are too complex for my tastes with multiple stats and sub stats. Combat takes a really long time to [...]

This is a very cool game! The genre merge of Sci-Fi/Fantasy is the most seamless I’ve seen so far in any game. The world and its inhabitants are well presented and multidimensional. Character creation is very robust while not being too complicated [...]

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.
