Love this game! Any suggestions for making it less deadly? I want to play it in a more ‘Two fisted heroics’ style…

I hear you. The XPG system is pretty deadly as-written. I can say that there's a revised XPG 3.0 ruleset currently in development, aiming toward a more heroic feel. In the meantime, you can always adjust starting points when building characters, start characters with an additional Luck point, that kind of thing. Also, if you haven't tried the Shticks rules in the AEGIS Vigilante Team Resource Guide, that can help PCs in dangerous situations while adding a lot of cool character flavor.

Thanks for the quick reply! Will this XPG be released here on Drive thru?

Yes. Initially with Arrowflight 3rd Edition and Star Legion Expanded, then a second edition of Airship Daedalus (hopefully by the end of 2024).

I just purchased this, hoping it would be basically an advanced version of their 1PG systems, since I am running a Dime Heroes, The Aviators campaign with time incursions, based in WWI with American Expeditionary Forces, US Army aviators as the custom player "class". I was hoping it would have a more advanced vehicle combat system and it is extremely disappointing. The majority of the book is universe background information and the combat system is even lighter than 1PG system. I am looking at using Blue Max/Canvas Eagles system as my airplane combat system, with Dime Heroes-The Aviators expansion rules, as well as house rules/clarifications, though, that only helps for WWI type aircraft. I was hoping to find something that could get me through the propeller driven aircraft eras. All the background information may be handy as reference material, and I might convert the rest of the character generation and such to XPG, but I need to look at it more before doing so. I am glad I only bought the one book...See more

Just bought the pdf and have not read it yet, but I can see already that this will be a monster to try to print and read. Any chance of a print friendly version? Turn off the page background/border graphic?

just got this and ordered a hardcopy - looks pretty good overall.... but what happened to the formatting and images in the Bestiary section?? Something looks as though it has gone wrong!

Not sure what you're referring to. All of our materials look fine. If it looks like a file corruption issue, I believe you can try downloading again?

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.
