Qin, The Warring states

Watermarked PDF

China. 240 BC. The state of Qin is the most authoritarian and brutal of all the Warring States. Its vast and disciplined army stands ready to embark on its great project : the union of all things under Heaven into a single Empire, or Tian Xia. But you can still change the course of history. Become a legend ! Enter the epic world of Warring States China, a world of colorful myths and timeless legends, bold wu xia and beautiful courtesans, wise scholars and scheming eunuchs, exorcists and monsters. All await the daring exploits and noble deeds of a new generation of heroes.

The game contains :

• A historical and cultural presentation of Ancient China.

• A description of each of the seven states, each with its own powerful factions, key figures, and closely-guarded secrets.

• A free character creation system and seven pre-generated characters. No classes.

• A description of the four mysterious ways of Magic.

• A game system enabling you to recreate the spectacular action scenes of Chinese martial arts movies.

• An introductory scenario which will transport you to the heart of this ancient and fascinating world.

You're a hero. Become a legend !

Is there a chance of getting an English edition of the Shaolin versus Wudang supplement?

Or getting a print on demand edition of the books already available in pdf form?

I own the hardcover C7 English translation, but I am not sure if it's the November 2009 revised translation or an original translation. The problem is that some of Tao descriptions in Legends don't seem to match the Tao descriptions in the core book. Specifically Tao of the 10,000 Hands - the description in Legends says the extra actions are free actions, but the word free does not appear in the basic rules. I've searched for errata online but can't find anything.

Is it too much to ask for a cover to be included in this purchase?

Any chance for a Print on Demand version? (or a new printing to get in stores?)

Bonjour Le 7ème Cercle!
3 Questions
Is this a new edition, or is it the same book as previously sold by Cubicle 7?
Are you planning on re-releasing the other English translations? I think I missed Art Of War when it was available and would like to pick it up.
Finally, are you planning on producing an English version of "Shaolin et Wudan" this time?

I am also very interested in whether an English version of "Shaolin et Wudan" will be produced.

It's the same book previously sold by C7. It was quite faithful to the french edition. I'm going to upload Art of war today. It will be available in hours. With a Tournament of Scarlet and White, a scenario.
Shaolin and Wudang is a huge translation work (a rulebook) and was not a success in french. We're not sure about that.

Seriously? Please do Shaolin et Wudang for the US. It may not have been in france, but it's pretty much the Wuxia Game people in the US seem to want. And my French is good enough to slowly read it but not really run it (especially since none of my players could read it!), and I want to!

But it really is the way to do a Jin Yong style game and it's amazing.

Hello. You mention "a Tournament of Scarlet and White" but I don't see it anywhere. The cubicle7 release looks like a stand alone bok but you make it sound like it's included in Art of War.
Please mention it on the Art of War product description if it is included as I'm pretty sure others will wonder this too.

Related to my question about "a Tournament of Scarlet and White", it seems like cubicle7 also released Qin Legends and a GM screen. Any chance of them getting uploaded?

Does Qin use the same system as Keltia and Yggdrasill?

Not quite, it's based on Yin and Yang (two dice) and a balance between them. But it's a two D10 system too. I'm gonna upload the free demo-kit for you to test.

You posted this 2 years ago. I still own the preview PDF from the old english publisher AKA Games but it might be a good idea to make it available for more people.
I can't even share mine, since somebody had the horrible idea to watermark a free demo PDF.

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.
