Why is this Pay What You Want?

Our goal at Audio Samurai Games is not to get rich (although that would be nice) by selling to our customers, but to make quality products that anyone can enjoy. Making quality gaming products takes more than just time and energy, it also takes a certain amount of capital money to obtain artwork and for other services needed to ensure that what ends up in your hands is something you can enjoy reading and playing. So, with that in mind, initial product sales have reached a point where we have met the expenditure of capital spent to produce several titles and we feel that allowing customers to dictate what this product is worth is a far better ideal that promotes what our main goal is, and to prove to you what it is not.
Having said all that, if you feel like paying the old price of US$7 we thank you, and all proceeds will pretty much go into our never ending search for excellent artwork and ideas to put into new titles. If you want to download it for free, we're happy that you show an interest and suggest that you check out our other free products, or our sourcebooks on sale for only US$1.
The Core Rules is also available in hardcover premium colour print HERE

Do you have what it takes?

Hands of Fate is a fantasy Role Playing Game system featuring deadly, fast paced combat and several free form magic styles. The players take control of the story by succeeding on skill checks and take the narrative from the Games Master, steering play towards their own ends. How your actions affect the world is determined by the players, not just the Games Master, and through collaborative narration the stories told belong to everyone involved.

Oh, and it uses cards instead of dice!

Game Features:

-Fast paced, deadly combat!

-Four completely independant magical systems, suited to many different playstyles!

-Unique game mechanics allowing storytelling duties to be passed around the table!

-Open ended, classless character generation! You want to be an axe swinging, armour clad vampire/werewolf Sorcerer? You can!

-A rich and troubled game world to explore, full of turmoil and ancient horrors!

Do you have the skill and courage to bear arms in a world where any fight could be your last? Where there is no cheating death, no leniency and no margin for error?

What hand will you be dealt?

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.
