Eclipse: The Codex Persona Shareware


   This unique d20 sourcebook includes:

  • A single pay-as-you-go system that allows you to build exactly the game and characters you want, exactly the way you want them. With completely personalized classes you’ll never need to consult another book of prestige classes, feats, or special abilities again!
  • Hundreds of new and expanded character abilities and feats to cover every special power and exotic ability we’ve ever seen, including vastly expanded Turning, Bardic, Leadership, Martial Arts, Proficiency, and Combat techniques.
  • Eight entirely new magic systems - Hexcraft, the Path of the Dragon, Ritual and Rune Magic, Thaumaturgy, Dweomer, Theurgy, and Witchcraft. Use one - or let the magical free-for-all begin!
  • Corrupted and Specialized Magic, as well as expanded Metamagic, Spell Storing, and Item Creation to accommodate thousands of different worlds and spellcasters.
  • Integrated campaign-based restraints on special powers, rather than arbitrary restrictions and a cumbersome array of prestige classes.
  • Disadvantages, Motivations, Ethics and Divine Patronage to add depth to characters and worlds.
  • Building and Customizing Races and Templates, alternative Epic Spells, playable rules for Dominion and Divine Ascension, World Laws, and more additional options than you’ll ever be able to use!
  • Fully compatible and transferable rules covering fantasy, modern, future, cyberpunk, superhero, historical, and other settings.

   Eclipse: The Codex Persona is fully compatible with standard characters using the 3.0, 3.5, Modern, Future, and many other rulesets. Give all your old characters unlimited options for the future WITHOUT having to consult twenty different books!

   There isn't any "sample" file because the complete Eclipse: The Codex Persona is available as a shareware download. If you like it, we trust that you'll come back to pay for it - or use one of the links inside it to order a print copy.

An incredible RPG system for anyone who wants to play D20 but .doesn't want to buy a dozen books. It has a free-form system that can be used to build just about anything and can work in any setting [...]

An review Okay, today I'll do something different - and take a look at a free d20-supplement. This review has been requested last years and it took forever. Why? Because we're talking Eclipse, 202 pages, 1 page front cover, 3 pa [...]

I've not delved deep in this, but it seems to be the 3E classes broken up into their component parts, with a points system for reassembling them again. It also adds about an equal measure of new stuff, adding a lot. It can either be used to let players [...]

I really don’t know how I’ve gone this long without reviewing this book. I’ve known about it for quite some time, and have been using it for the last several weeks in my home game, yet somehow writing a review didn’t occur to me. That oversight [...]

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.
