An Epic Game of Reality on the Brink

Magick is not dead. Open your eyes and see with mystick sight. A War rages, A Reconing is at hand. On one side stand the Others, Who would twist our world with their mad designs; On the other hand, the snare of Pride, And Power's lure, Await an Inner Fall. Is our Path too narrow? You decide. Come forth, A journey beckons. Open your eyes And Awaken.

I love the game. I don't for the life of me know why the printer felt entitled to include a three page advertisement for IGI Global at the front of the rulebook. Wasn't my buying the hardcover enough? Two stars for that. [...]

A game that always garnered huge passions from it’s fans, and kept fans returning largely due to the central concept of ‘consensual reality’. It’s hard to relate to the impact that this concept would have had on it’s fans upon first reading. [...]

This is the best RPG about magick ever written. Every style of magick is allowed in this game (in fact, the more unique, the better!). There are even two styles of techno-magick. In this game, the Nine Traditions defend themselves against the Conventio [...]

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.
