Tianxia: Path of Destiny

Suggested Price $0.00

Tianxia: Path of Destiny is a Lifepath Generator for Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade!

This PDF acts as an Appendix to the Kung Fu fantasy setting outlined in Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade, and can help you jump-start character creation. Presented as equal parts random tables and character creation workshop, Jack Norris's Path of Destiny will help you discover new characters with a roll of the dice!

Easy-to-use tables will help you quickly choose aspects, skill assignments, and background elements for your characters. Sidebars and expanded explanations throughout will help you expand on the ideas sparked by the tables! You can roll or pick your way through the tables, too, there's no "Good" or "Bad" options, characters built this way will not wind up more or less powerful than characters built using the guidelines in the Tianxia core book.

Presented as our very first "Pay what you want" product, this PDF was created as an extension of the Tianxia line of gaming books thanks to our Kickstarter Campaign. We are making it available to the public, because we think it's too awesome to keep to ourselves, but it works best when you also have the core book Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade and the Fate Core System rulebook, as well as a set of Fate or Fudge dice.

Sorry, no, we were trying to focus on making the file as small as possible. We intend to get a print on demand version combining the two different appendices into one file, but that went to the back-burner while we were finishing the other major projects in the series. I do hope to have a combined version out by the end of the year, and we'll certainly consider revisiting the idea of putting layers in to make sure it's more printer-friendly next time.

Is this layered for print-friendliness?

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.
