Best of Fenix - Volume 2

Watermarked PDF

Best of Fenix includes some of the best gaming material from the Swedish gaming magazine Fenix – translated to English. In Best of Fenix you will find inspiring material written directly for Fenix’ readers by renown international game designers such as Kenneth Hite and Pete Nash, but also some of the best from the Swedish arena. To top it off, we got our own comic strip Bernard the Barbarian, created by Åke Rosenius and at least one standalone game in every issue. This horror volume should hopefully send chills down your spine. Kenneth Hite’s game The Last Flight of KG 200 is possibly our most appreciated material in Fenix ever.

The Lion in Fimbulwinter - Kenneh Hite on Sweden in The Day After Raganrok.

Smiles of a Summer Night – A horror scenario by Åsa Roos, set in present day Stockholm, Sweden during the Summer. The Mediterranean Museum is launching a new exhibition, including a mislabeled artefact...

The Last Flight of KG 200 – Kenneth Kenneth Hite’s horror storytelling game presents a desperate crew, flying out of the heart of darkness, into the heart of mystery. It might kill them all, or worse: reveal the truth they fly from.

Golem - Åsa Roos on the legend of Golem and how it can be used in play.

Lovecraftian Horror - H. P. Lovecraft is as huge in the roleplaying community as he is unknown outside of it. Why? Martin Brodén Rother-Schirren takes a closer look at the man and his methods in search of an explanation.

The Many Faces of Horror – Pete Nash on three main methods of supporting horror tropes using the core rules of RuneQuest 6. In addition he introduces the horrifying monsters The Vengeful Ones, to be inserted into any fantasy or sci-fi-setting.

Celestial Storm – A Crusade for Fallen Gods – A freeform fantasy game for 3-5 players. Nils Hintze has written this a drama of galloping horses faster than the wind, duels with curved blades, dramatic poetry, cunning djinns and hopelessness.

Fictive Games in Fictive Worlds - Christoffer Krämer on why it is worth your while to create a fictive game to be played by the characters in your fictive world – and how to avoid the pitfalls in doing so.

Just Add Rum - Kenneth Hite provide you with everything you need in order to create pirates for your own campaign that makes sense, adding flavor and excitement to the rest of your world in the process.

Better Angels – A complete humoristic Cardgame – Game Developer Christoffer Krämer, probably best known on the international scene for Gigantoskop's games Big Badaboom, Badaboom and Kablamo, has developed this card game for Fenix readers. In the books you will find a separate insert with the game props printed on thicker paper.

Bernard the Barbarian – Fenix’ own comic has been a part of every issue of the magazine. Åke Rosenius, Sweden’s funniest gaming cartoonist, has created this sly, lazy barbarian, mostly interested in beer and women.

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.
