So as I understand Paizo is not involved any more?

The article on icv2 is a bit misleading on this matter, Paizo never was involved in the project as an editor or publisher, or any other creative input. However, they will be handling the distribution for Polaris! We have been partners with Paizo over many years already, being the French translators of the Pathfinder RPG and CG, so we are very happy to continue this partnership with them :)

Ok. So I hope the Kickstarter will be EU friendly (in terms of shipping). The game looks very interesting and I'd be happy to back it :)

Hey,

it will be available here on DriveThru as a PDF purchase, but it's not planned to be a PoD here for now. You will be able to get the printed copy through our Kickstarter or regular distribution.

And thank you for your interest! :)

The artwork looks really good, and an undersea sci-fi setting really pumps my interests. But another custom mechanics? :-( It would be nice to see this converted for some already popular and established rules systems, e.g. Fate Core.

As I read your comment I expected you to say D20! Glad Fate is getting around.

Hell no, d20 is evil! :-) As for this game, I guess it might also work good using Savage Worlds.

Hello Lukasz,

yes, as part of the upcoming kickstarter, we will add conversions to other already existing rules systems - and you might even have guessed right with the Savage Worlds conversion ;)
The setting is really what makes Polaris RPG unique, so a conversion is no problem and we absolutely understand that many people do not want to pick up totally new mechanics :)

Cheers

Format
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.
