This first supplement for The Secret Fire roleplaying game augments the material presented in the main rulebook, expanding upon existing elements as well as adding new dimensions of play. At the same time, The Way of Tree, Shadow & Flame seeks to maintain the dark sense of mystery, uncertainty, and danger of the original system, while providing players and Master Creators with options and advice for creating and fleshing out three-dimensional characters to set forth on perilous quests in search of fortune, glory, or perhaps some greater cause, all within a realistic fantasy milieu. As The Secret Fire was always meant to be a free-wheeling game of adventure loosely bound by its rules and empowered by the varied imaginations of its various participants, so this book is the result of contributions from many veteran game designers responsible for some of the most popular game systems and campaign worlds in the history of the hobby.

The Way of Tree, Shadow & Flame contains new Callings (Assassin, Druid, Huntsman, Knight-Errant, Skald), new prayers, spells, and rituals, new Traits and Trademarks, expanded Energy Point options, backstory and relationship generation tables, new equipment, rules for building and running your own domain, new monsters and talismans, new ways to use the Elder Gods and the Character Wheel, optional rules to customize your campaign and increase immersion, random encounter tables for sandbox play, advice for MCs, and more!

The book, designed for the classic 5.5" x 8.5" size that started the industry, fits perfectly on both laptop and, especially, tablet screens. Unlike larger 8.5" x 11" books, the text and images appear at almost exactly actual size. Which means no shrunken-down pages that require constant zooming to read!

You also get two versions of the file: a hi-res (over 60MB) PDF you can print at full 300 dpi as well as smaller PDF (approximately 7 MB) that looks perfect on any screen, yet doesn't take up a lot of precious drive space -- plus it loads more quickly and allows you to speed through pages faster than the large version to save you time at the game table. Print the large PDF to create a hard-copy, store the small PDF on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone, or do both. Whatever works best for you!

“A flavor-filled approach to fantasy gaming that puts the mystery
and magic back into the dark recesses of the dungeon.”

—Monte Cook, Creator of Numenera, Co-Creator of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition

“With THE SECRET FIRE, George Strayton has captured the sense of wonder, possibility and (yes) magic that I felt when I first played D&D back in 1979.”
— Stan!

Format
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.
