New Fire: Temikamatl Book of Dreams

Selected Option:

“You have arrived at your Home, People of Light! You shall live here at the Foundation of Heaven, the place where Sky meets Earth, where dreams awaken! As Heaven is full of wonder and beauty, so shall your home be full of flowers and feathers and all the colors that there are. As long as the Sun shines, your fame and glory will endure!”

Welcome to New Fire, a roleplaying and storytelling game set in the world of Semanawak, a fantasy world inspired by Precolumbian Mesoamerica and the great cultures that lived there--the Aztec-Mexica, the Maya, the Mixtecs, the Olmecs, and many others. 

In New Fire players take on the roles of brave Warriors, devout Priests, and shapeshifting Nawal Sorcerers and, through a unique collaborative storytelling mechanic, create their own epic legends in this magical land. 

This book, the Temikamatl, contains everything you need to get started playing New Fire:

- Detailed history of Semanawak and the cultures, gods, and spirits that inhabit it.

- Simple but powerful rules designed to pull together the best ideas of everyone who plays.

- Step by step character creation rules that will have you playing in no time.

- Gamemaster instructions for running New Fire.

The Sun that rises over Semanawak rises only through the struggle and sacrifice of heroes. If the people make offerings and nourish the world, the Sun will continue to rise each morning, and the story will continue. But without them--without You--there will be no Dawn, and the story will end forever!

I missed the Kickstarter, but bought the deluxe hardcover edition (plus B&W PDF) as soon as it became available, and on first skim-reading it looks really, really good. The book has c.180 pages of pure setting, beautifully presented and illustrated [...]

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.
