Sentinels of Echo City


Sentinels of Echo City is my love letter to 1984. It is the game that answers the question, “what if the designers of FASERIP used the B/X system instead?”. It is the game that I wish I could get into a time machine and take to myself when I was 13 years old. It’s an old-school superhero game jam packed with love for the genre. It’s fast. It’s loose. And it does it all.

In the long-standing tradition among comics artists, the artwork pays tribute to the great comic artists whose work inspired mine, starting from the cover, and continuing throughout. The game also serves as an homage to the exceptional work of game designers who put their hearts into the fantastic RPGs that filled my childhood.

And maybe yours, too.

Sentinels of Echo City is released under the Open Game License (for the system) and a Creative Commons Share-Alike Attribution License (for the game world). You can create derivative work and publish it. I hope you do!

Your purchase of a pdf copy of the game means that you will get a $5 off coupon towards the print edition in either hardcover or softcover. These are now available; see page 128 for the discount links.

Hi there- if we bought the hardcover version on Lulu, do you offer a complimentary PDF with it? If not, totally cool, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask (and besides, it seems like you were giving coupons for those who bought the PDF first)! :)

Any chance of a POD?

It's for sale on Lulu. You should have received a direct link to a print edition for $9.95 with your download. If there's a problem, let me know.

Why doesn't the PDF have the colour cover? Just curious mate.

I'm not sure. I've just always published the insides as pdfs and always have the cover as a separate file.

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.
