I have the print version, and as other have said, what is there is very nice – a pull out map, a brief gazetteer of the starting area, some world history that actually turns out to be very relevant to the adventure, some new equipment (most notably battery powered blaster pistols and rifles), a new playable race (saurians).

The adventure comes across as a nice mix of role-playing, exploration and combat encounters and it ties in very well to the setting. The monsters are all new and each one has something about it I found interesting. However, there is no real adventure overview, and whilst we know the start is intended for 2nd level characters, there appears to be no indication as to whether they are expected to level up over the course of it.

There were also a couple of design decisions I found a bit odd – changing the battery in your watch is totally a thing you could find yourself doing in this game, the saurians were the most technologically advanced race but their ability bonus...See more

The maps provided with the book have low resolution and some of the names are very difficult to read. Am I the only one with the issue? Does anyone know if Green Ronin is planning to release higher resolution files?

So where is a map? I mean I can make up my own NPCs and adventure path, but I want that map so that I can know the names of cities, countries, areas etc.

This book has this or not?

Could someone that has it give a page count on number of pages for setting/rule vs # of pages that are adventure

It appears that the core Fantasy AGE book is 144 pages while Titansgrave is 96.

Yes the Titansgrave book is 96 pages, what I was wondering how many of those 96 pages are the adventure vs setting info on the world and/or races, gear etc.

Pages 6-23 are setting and rules for that. The rest of the book is adventure. I personally was disappointed, as the setting looks awesome. The book does say it is an adventure series though, and that part looks good. I hope that more on the setting comes out!

Is this the rules as well, or just setting material ?

It'd be a good idea to include more in the previews: at least the contents so folks can see what's in there, and a page or two that show the layout.

I am not familiar with the setting other than Wil Wheaton’s game on YouTube. While it looks very entertaining, they could be playing Shadowrun or Dark Heresy for all I know. The sales pitch above, and on the GR website, is too vague to tell me anything about this game. Is there space travel? Are there space ships capable of going to other worlds? Are there other worlds? Is the bestiary expanded from the core book? Are there rules for cybernetics? Are there new classes? Other than the Saurians, are there any new races? Does it have its own setting specific magic system? I'm not going to purchase two books without knowing anything about the game.

A friend of mine just purchased Titansgrave. IT IS NOT A COMPANION BOOK. It is a scifi adventure for the Fantasy AGE RPG. It has rules for creating Saurians and includes a handful of technology like blaster weapons and basic cybernetic arms, but don't think you're going to build a cyborg out of these rules. There is no bestiary. Insultingly, there are new focuses for driving vehicles, piloting aircraft (spacecraft?) and science, but there are no rules or gear to back any of this up. There are no droids or computers or technology outside of what you make up yourself. The setting material is also sparse outside of the adventure.
If you wanted to follow the adventure path that Wil Wheaton is running on YouTube, then this is okay. If you were looking for anything more than that, then you are going to be greatly disappointed.

Yeah it strikes me as generic SF/fantasy, and not something you couldn't do by hacking any number of SF/fantasy games with orcs , dwarfs, and elfs.

Ihonestly I was hoping for a mor post apocalyptic setting, instead it's just more cyber orcs.

Yeah because it doesn't say "Adventure Series" on the cover, right? It amazes me that people buying books can't be bothered to read or do some research before making a purchase.

For what it's worth, according to Chris Pramas, they want to work on a more thorough setting book, but that depends mostly on whether there'll be a season 2 of Titansgrave or not.

Confirmed. There will be a second season. http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?2791-TITANSGRAVE-Season-2-Announced

Are there any new character creation options? Saurian? Rules for tech? New gear?

Saurians are in, as well as new Foci, Talents and Equipment to cover Blasters and other high-tech gear.

Can this be played with Dragon Age Deluxe?

This is for FANTASY AGE, they share a good bit of mechanics. With a little tweaking, it'll work.
Customer avatar
Ryan K August 06, 2015 12:48 pm UTC
So as to not understate, the amount of tweaking needed is next to none. Mechanically they are twins.

Except for the two new stats and the removal of a stat, and reorganizing how spells are learned and grouped together. So fraternal twins. ;)

Format

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.
