Necropunk Campaign Setting


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

Play a complex, deep, political, world where shaolin monks with bone knives fight 11 ft. tall 2 ton bone golems at the speed of precognitive thought.

Subtle Horror in a Sci Fi Pathfinder Campaign Setting?

Necropunk is a campaign scifi setting that offers a look into what it means to be human.

It is, in the strictest sense, a Pathfinder Campaign Setting set in a fantastic future where science has become indistinguishable from magic and necromancy is the flavor of the day.

Once humanity left the Solar System, our bones began to secrete an enzyme called zerostag that made our bones thought-transmissive.

1,000 years later and bones are worth their weight in gold. They are used to create powerful psycho-reactive weapons and armors, giant mecha bone golems, and to augment ships so they can react before the pilot even thinks a command!

Play as a daring grave robber and steal valuable corpses from the brutal capitalistic Necromancers' Guild's graveworlds, an honorable knife wielding Welshen qu'em with the power of the perfect martial art on his side, a hacking exile psychic with the power to take over any necrotech you come across, a political mover and shaker with a dark past, a righteous no-nonsense Sentinel officer, or maybe a 10 year old feat-swapping genius is more your style! Lets not forget the absurdist Magpies who can literally "see the flow of luck" thanks to the symbiotic relationship they have with an alien fish that lives in their stomach!

All this and so much more is tied together with exciting, thought provoking lore.

I thought by clicking “full-size preview” that I would be viewing the “50 page preview” mentioned at the end of the description do I get to see that?

The product's preview is a reproduction of the character sheet? Why? This makes no sense, and certainly doesn't help someone who wants to know if the book is worth to be purchased.

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.
