There are aliens. Lots of them. And blasters and hyperdrive and psychics and mystics who actually seem to have a handle on something that works. It’s a booming, burgeoning space full of technology from all three types of physics and you’re in the middle of it working for an organization with a purpose. You’re going to get things done and do it the hard way if need be. Dogfights, duels, card games, tentacle wrestling: whatever it takes, you’re equipped for it.

Elysium Flare is a Fate variant with a detailed setting full of robots and tentacle monsters and novel new rules for dogfighting starships, improving equipment, generating worlds, and creating a purpose for your characters in this semi-fantastic science fictional galaxy. Pick a purpose and head into space to kick some ass.

The ship combat system mentions an Elysium Flare wargame. Is that still in the works?

Your Full-Size Preview is a little dull, being only a recapitulation of the variant Fate rules. You might want to include a few panels of what makes this game unique. I reviewed the game and the star-system Aspects Tables were delightfully bizarre, things you might get in a technologically advanced inter-species (and jaded? decadent?) civilization.

Only just got mine, but looks like an excellent game. One question for the publisher - pages 2-21 and 2-22 are blank in both the PDF and hardcover POD versions- are they supposed to be? (Just asking because the errata on the G+ group refers to an item on p2-22)

What happened to the hard cover print on demand version? Is the physical book available elsewhere?

It's back! It's also available through Lulu which you might prefer if you're shopping from Canada.

(Edit) It seems you do include the Fate rules, but which version? There is FATE 3.0 terminology in the preview such as tag and scopes. It resembles more DIASPORA than the current Fate Core rules.

It's a Fate variant with roots in Core, Diaspora, SotC, and elsewhere.

This looks like the sort of rulebook that my own SF setting book "Castrobancla, The City of Aliens" is looking for. Elysium Flare really seems to be a book to consider investing in.

This looks like a great product. I recommend anyone on the fence check out the last playtest copy (#10) at

Based on my own value assessment, I've got this one wish listed and waiting for a sale price of about $7.99.

This is one of the better sci-fi products on DTRPG.

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.
