Armor from the Nocturne book

Nocturne (13th Age)

Meet Frankenstein’s monster with a vorpal sword… welcome to the realm of Dark Fantasy, and Gothic Horror for 13th Age!
Within a twisted realm shaped by the malignant power of The Nightfall, your adventure comes to life using the Archmage Engine to explore the many lands of the realm. These lands are as varied as the denizens themselves, taking the place of traditional 13th Age Icons: good against evil, order against chaos, tyranny against freedom… but at every stage the lines are blurred.

Nocturne is a 13th Age product, but also part of Savage Mojo’s Suzerain campaign setting, fitting neatly with the many realms of the Continuum. 

For Players Nocturne provides:

* New options for adventurers: several custom classes such as the mysterious Bloodshire Slayer. * New races: the vampire, werebeast, and sallowfolk.
* New equipment such as the diving suit for The Churn, so you can explore the mysterious depths of this watery “land”. Alternatively, there’s the fire sword, a non-magical item of ingenious technology which draws fuel from a reservoir in the handle.
* New magic items such as Daemonic Wings, allowing your hero to fly. However, this is Nocturne and such magic comes with a price!

For GMs Nocturne provides:

* A complete dark fantasy setting with tones of gothic horror, steampunk, clockpunk, and more. Every land of Nocturne is detailed, with maps, and packed with story hooks to spin adventures galore.
* A dozen new Icons for your players to discover, twisted beings pulled here by The Nightfall. They rule the lands but battle in opposed pairs for control.
* A complete campaign, in the style of Savage Mojo’s award-winning Suzerain setting. 
* A whole slew of side quests, short adventures to slot between the main beats of your gaming group’s grand adventure.
* A sandbox of ideas to use in the Nightfall realm, or to incorporate in your own campaign world.

Welcome to Nocturne. The Nightfall is but a breath behind; if you have the courage and strength, you might just survive for one more day.

Product contains: A 146 page full color PDF with all you need to play in this setting using the 13th Age rules system.

Hi James (waves),

By a strange set of circumstances, I did not receive the notice of your comment for a couple of days -- and then had to research the answer. Our plan has always been to convert this book to the Savage Worlds game system. However, it hasn't yet happened and there's good reasons why. We had part of the manuscript written when we started hearing about Savage Worlds Black edition and decided to stop and discuss this internally. I think we are going to wait and see what the changes are in SWB and then run a kickstarter later this year to let us get the conversion done more quickly and into the hands of our fans like you.

I hope this helps answer your questions and I appreciate your patience while we sorted out the answer to your question.

Hello, it's been a year since you wrote that this would be available in Savage Worlds. Am I to understand that hasn't yet happened? I'm not a 13th Age GM, but I'd pick this up in a hot second if it was Savage Worlds. Heck, if you just made a conversion document, I'd pick it up. I was really hoping it was at least dual statted, but, and correct me if I'm wrong, this is only for 13th Age at this time.

We're talking about how to make that book right now, as it happens. The history of this project (we rescued a Kickstarter where the developer ran with the money leaving a friend of ours taking the fall) meant that we developed it for 13th Age. However we definitely want to get it to the Savage Worlds fans asap. It's a great campaign.

Hopefully we'll have more news on that in the coming weeks.

Hello, I noticed that there's a mark down on the cost, but it states $24.99 to $24.99. Is that the correct price? Also, any word on when the PoD will be available?

Hi Francis,

I apologize for not responding.. In part, my inexperience with the DriveThru system and not realizing the places to check and respond to comments & questions were the reasons for a lack of response. To answer your question, $24.99 is the correct price for the pdf and the print versions sell for $39.99 & $49.99 for soft and hard cover versions respectively. I am not sure why it was showing a markdown - I think I've fixed the issue and thank you for bringing it up.

Sorry if I am being inconvenient, but my friend and I just gave up buying your pdf, because it's too expensive for a 146 page content, don't you think? If it was aroung 15 dollars we would have bought it already. Kind regards

We're sorry you feel that way, Igor, but respect your decision.

Each of our books is very carefully crafted. The writers work hard, as do the editors, illustrators, graphic designers and layout artists. There's a project leader on each of these books who puts in months of their life to make every page a winner.

We feel like there's a heck of a lot of value out of each and every campaign, each and every setting. If you run the Nocturne campaign there's fun for you and your gaming group for many evenings of gaming. The price is a few pennies per hour of entertainment for each of you. If you went to the cinema you'd pay what, $15 for two hours of entertainment?

We know we can't please everybody, but we know just how polished and wonderful each and every book is, and we hope that many people will appreciate the value at the price we have to put it up.

Hey, that... or there are always the DriveThruRPG sales throughout the year, right? You could pick up a bargain....See more

Very soon you'll be able to get a PoD version of this book, so the wait's almost over!

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.
