Infinite Futures is a Sci-Fi RPG geared to allow you to play any sort of Sci-Fi genre or game. Built from the Pathfinder game system, you will find that IF is a great game, fully detailed with a loads of great races and classes as wells as skills and feats to make any Sci-Fi game a joy to play.

Prolog:  What’s in a name? 

Well, first I should explain that first we tried about half a dozen other names for this game.  Some of the names we wanted were already taken.  But most of the time, the problem was, a name conjured up too specific an image, or no image at all.

While there is a great variety in fantasy, it is a single genre.  Where as science fiction has a multitude of sub genera:  post apocalyptic, modern horror, dystopian, space rangers, space opera, space exploration, and alien invasions, to name a few.

In fantasy, magic, in some form or another, is an interregnal part of the story.  But when you consider science fiction, there is Sci-Fi which doesn’t involve supernatural forces; Sci-Fi which doesn’t involve androids; Sci-Fi which doesn’t involve space travel.  While there are many elements which can be included, or have a Sci-Fi feel to them, no single one is actually mandatory the way magic defines the fantasy genera.

So after our last name fell through I was lying in bed one day (I was performing astronomical observations at the time, so living a nocturnal lifestyle.)  As I tried to ignore the sunlight and drift off to sleep, I thought about a name which could capture the feel of ‘generic Sci-Fi.’  Given the variety in different people’s visions of the futures, what one name could possibly capture the feeling of the infinite possible futures?

The infinite possible futures?  In the RPG industry, how you abbreviate the name of your game is a non-trivial question.  Acronyms are one of the most popular ways.  Infinite Futures naturally becomes IF.  And that is really what Sci-Fi is all about “What IF...”

So now come, explore the infinite futures with us.  It all starts by asking yourself that one simple question, “What IF?”

Infinite Futures seems a better 'effort' than World of Wonders. But, it still has some flaws. Typing errors (someone really should have proof-read it before releasing it). The artwork (CGI), seems rather good in some sections, but not so good in [...]

This product, an attempt to produce an over-arching set of rules for all manner of science-fiction gaming drawing on the core concepts of the Pathfinder ruleset, opens with a bit of a rambling prologue about how the game got its name, and the usual 'What [...]

I wanted to like this, i really did, but between the bad art, the poor editing (the classes chapter stuck out in this reguard) and the boring races (i understand your trying to be generic, and that they released an aliens book shortly after, but a little [...]

Infinite Futures is an ambitious product, an attempt to convert D20 Future to make them fully compatible with the Pathfinder RPG. It's a decent attempt, and will be useful for gamers wanting new feats, futuristic and modern weapons, cybernetics and alien [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
