Gods and Monsters • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price $4.00

Gods-Monsters-Promo.jpgThe world is young and majestic, and humans eke out a living and dream of civilization.

But you are not like them: you are a god. A primal creature, your soul a blazing font of power, your body an expression of your nature. The more extreme your behavior the greater the power you can wield—but it is easy to become lost in a single facet of your existence and cross the line from god to monster.

Perform mythic acts, skirmish with rival pantheons, and walk the line between power and control in this Fate World of Adventure by Chris Longhurst.

Gods and Monsters requires Fate Core or Fate Accelerated to play. This 50-page supplement contains:

  • A new campaign structure that separates play into tales, allowing for gameplay to affect the world at large
  • World creation ideas, with basic structures for sub-regions and communities
  • Character creation systems for gods, including divine mantles, intention, and epic stunts
  • A sliding scale of opposing approaches allows characters to change during gameplay
  • A variety of introductory tales to get you started

Gods and Monsters. What will your legacy be?

The Fate Adventures & Worlds line provides compact, rich, affordable, gorgeous settings with a ready-to-go adventure for GMs in a pinch. Buy one this afternoon, be ready to run this evening.

The updated file has severely compressed graphics (with artifacts visible to the naked eye). Please restore the nice, 20MB file, it looked a lot lot better.

The prior file rendered graphics very much too dark. We'll see if we can find a suitable compromise.

Hmm... I didn't notice anything wrong with them, maybe you got brightness on you monitor too low? :-) Anyway, if you think they are too dark, then apply some gamma filters to them (this should be a lossless operation), but don't compress them additionally.

The darkness problem only occurred on some devices (primarily mobile/tablet ones) or viewing software that couldn't properly handle screen display of CMYK color model artwork.

I viewed it on my computer (in Okular PDF viewer on GNU/Linux) and on an android mobile phone, both were fine. I do see the difference in the brightness in the new one, the colors seem washed out, compared to the older file where they were in earthly tones which IMHO gave very nice atmosphere to the text along them.

Maybe you could just keep both files available for download? Or are there changes in the text too?

OK, I did a diff on both files and there are some large changes in the text in the new one. I really hope you manage to keep the quality and tone of the images and the new text changes.

Hey there, Łukasz — I've been trying to carve out time to address this. Could you drop me an email at and mention this conversation? I'd like to ask you to test drive a possible fix. Thanks!

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.
