Hekaths are comingHyonosClose your eyes and imagine hyper-technological and massive huge cities that expand all over the globe’s surface. Imagine a far away, remote future where technology has made great strides and in which humans are perfectly integrated. A perfect, radiant future where humanity has reached a new evolution.

A little black box containing something alien and unknown.

Close your eyes, can you feel your heartbeat? Every single atom of the world you know is synchronized to the pulsation of your heart. The box has been opened, reality has been remolded according to old inexplicable commands.

Open your eyes, the abandoned, destroyed huge cities are still there. Humans live in fear and despair, hidden in the darkest ruins. Droids are only old scraps, Artificial Intelligences are only old baluards of the times that have been. A dark, infinite, ravenous shadow is all over this.



Evolution Pulse is a Fate Core/Fate Accelerated setting. In this book, you will find all that you need to play your adventures in this dark future full of unique characters, who are able to manipulate reality. You will find all indications and suggestions you need to bring into your game all the features of the world of Evolution Pulse: from Executors, characters related to Artificial Intelligences, to fearsome and lethal Hekaths, inter-dimensional monsters who have devoured and destroyed the world.

Evolution Pulse requires Fate Core or Fate Accelerated to play. This 186-page supplement includes:

  • Four peculiar archetypes from which to choose your character, plus one extra special archetype, all of which bring powerful themes into play.
  • A detailed Approach system, diversified for each character archetype
  • A complete list of stunts, story-driven and specifically built to characterize each archetype
  • Rules and information on Hekaths, the fearsome enemies who seek to devour the world
  • Rules for the manipulation of reality and for the Pulse, the energy that feeds the fearsome Hekath
  • All the tools to give life to the world of Evolution Pulse, through a series of questions that allow you to create your own personal apocalypse at the mercy of the Hekath fury
  • Stories and tales to experience the dark world of Evolution Pulse from the eyes of its inhabitants

Close your eyes, synchronize the heartbeat, the evolution pulse.

Do you guys have any plans to publish the expansion Dark Echoes in english this year or in 2018? And the freebies about Evolution Pulse, do you have any news?

Are any of the downloadable materials on your website going to be made available in English? I'm craving more of this setting and would love to use them, but I unfortunately don't speak/read Italian. :(

I was also curious: was Evolution Pulse influenced by BLAME! or NOiSE or BIOMEGA?

Yes, “Evolution Pulse” is overtly inspired to “BLAME!” and “BIOMEGA”. ;-)

For the materials I’m going to ask to the authors.

Thank you! :)

Sorry for the late answer!
I'm from Dreamlord Press, the publisher actually, not one of the authors, but I think I'd leave a reply here.

We're actually working on some different projects, to translate them into english and let some more people to partake od them.
One of them is offering you all the freebies about Evolution Pulse, and also to bring you the full supplement "Echi Oscuri" (Dark Echoes) with more archetypes, lore and hacks to implement in your games.

Don't know yet a date for them to hit the international market, as daily life always gets in the middle, but we're coming.

Thank you very much for your response, Nicola. I'm really excited to hear about Dreamlord Press and Black-Box intending to bring all of that to English players! :D

I can't offer any help for translating, but if you need help EDITING the translated products feel free to contact me!

Mi domandavo se fosse necessario possedere il manuale Fate per usufruire de questo prodotto. E, come già chiesto più sotto, se fosse prevista la traduzione inglese del vostro supplemento (vivo in Canada e i miei compagni di gioco non leggono l'italiano).

Per giocare a “Evolution Pulse”, ti serve un manuale base di “Fate”, a scelta tra “Fate Base” e “Fate Accelerato”. Il mio consiglio è quello di usare “Fate Base”, perché è più completo di spiegazioni e di esempi grazie ai quali capirai molto meglio come si usa “Fate” e la sua filosofia. Tra l’altro, in inglese lo trovi in formato digitale in “pay what you want”:

Per la seconda domanda, intendi se è prevista la traduzione in inglese di “Echi Oscuri”?
Customer avatar
Fabrizio V March 19, 2017 1:23 pm UTC
Grazie della risposta. Quanto alla seconda domanda, sì è proprio quello che intendevo: Echi Oscuri sarà tradotto?

Oddio, se conosco bene i ragazzi, direi che prima o poi arriverà, ma prendi le mie parole con le pinze, che magari hanno altri progetti da fare prima (quasi sicuramente).

Aggiungo soltanto che, pur essendo un ottimo supplemento pieno di belle cose, col manuale base ci vai già lontano. Diciamo che non è vitale: io ho giocato alla grande prima che uscisse “Echi Oscuri”. ;-)

Do you guys have any plans to translate the expansion Echoes Dark? I hope so as I am eager to see more of the game world.

Hi Jon,

We're working hard on having the product properly done for PoD, like more proofreading and editing.
We've been also busy with a couple of big fairs and cons here in Italy, but the work is still progressing fast.

Thank you for the reply. Congratulations on being so busy (this must be a good thing)! I'll be sure to keep checking back here regularly.

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.
