Elthos RPG Core Rules Book


Introducing Elthos RPG Core Rules - 44th Annivesary Edition!

Elthos RPG is a medium-light weight traditional RPG that has been distilled down into a concise yet flexible mini-system for ease of play. Its focus is on providing Gamesmasters with the freedom to exercise their own creativity, and as such its overall mission is to help GMs create their own Worlds. Therefore the Core Rules provides only the mechanics of the system, with a small set of example items and Characters to be used as a basis for expansion by the GM. If you're a creative type who enjoys creating Worlds, then Elthos is built for you.  The Rules Book is designed as a stand alone product that can be used independently, but it is intended to be used in conjunction with The Mythos Machine, a web application that fully integrates the Elthos RPG Rules and provides World Building and Character Management Services (among other features).  Together they form a powerful combination of fast-play and comprehensive computer support.  Take a gander at the Review Elthos RPG - More Than Meets the Eye by Mark Knights for more information.

Thanks! The real strength of the Elthos RPG System, the actual Super Power, is in the Mythos Machine. Please do check that out after you explore the rules a bit. The Mythos Machine is designed to save you enormous amounts of Game Prep time, and facilitate the creation and running of a myriad of RPG Worlds. I'd be really curious to hear what you think of the combination! :)

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.
