Amethyst - Hearts of Chaos (5E)


Compatible with 5th Edition


Remastered with new content and updated rules!

Amethyst is a Role Playing Game presenting a world where a true-to-book fantasy setting is forced upon our real world.  How would humanity respond?  This is not some stylized view of Earth seen in books and on TV.  It’s a world with all the problems, both social and political, intact.  

        Five hundred years after magic’s return, the remnants of our technological heritage live in the few remaining bastions—cities like ones of present day, but walled in against the encroaching magic surrounding it.  

        Will mankind be able to retake the planet and push the fantasy back into the realms of our imagination, able to resume our bind passion for consumerism and industrialization?  Is this world better than the one mankind squandered?

        Hearts of Chaos is an introductory module for Amethyst.  It includes new rules and pregenerated characters for those wanting to get right into the action.  It also presents an overview of Amethyst's 5E adaptation for those curious of the larger production.

        The players take the role of members of an international techan mercenary company tasked with a critical mission:  Venture into a no-man’s land where few humans have been, find a rogue former colonel in lie with those born of magic, and kill him.

        This adventure includes: 

  • Six Pregenerated characters 

  • All the basic rules from Amethyst required for play using 5th Edition rules.

  • Monsters unique to the Amethyst setting.

  • 5th Edition rules to add technology to any game.

  • Full Color Artwork from Hugo-nominated artist Nick Greenwood.

Both "previews" for this product are simply PDFs of a standard 5E character sheet with an Amethyst logo. I'm not sure how that's supposed to tempt me to buy it.

According to the text description, this adventure includes pregen characters (okay), all the basic rules from Amethyst required for play (so, useless to me if I already have the Amethyst Quintessence book?), monsters (okay), 5E rules to add technology (that add to the core rules, or what?), full colour artwork (okay, but that's not why I'd choose to buy or not).

Personally, I'd like to see something of the adventure part of the product, and perhaps a taste of the new rules (if that's what they are) as I'm unable to see the value in it otherwise.

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.
