Generations: A game of Ancestry and Rebirth.

When you die, you return. In Generations, players act as humans in an alternate Earth where, when you die, a new incarnation of your lineage is born. Every time someone is born, they are keyed to a unique element. Take to the streets with your power over the element of Zone, and alter what is accepted and what is taboo everywhere you go. Become a famed comedian by tapping into the Joy in your audience. Take work as a professional cook, thanks to your control over Heat. Become a national threat with your power of Radiation.

But more than anything, prepare to die. The world is full of people with wild powers. Sometimes accidents happen, and sometimes “accidents” happen. Crime can be lucrative with the proper powers, but it is incredibly deadly when the police force has powers of its own. Get what you deserve from living hard, or get what someone else deserved by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Die, but then live again.

Generations uses a simple, 2d6+points bet from attribute pools, set against difficulties as given by the Story Leader, to take all actions. This system also works seamlessly with the elemental powers that players are given, and allows the rolls to be simple and clear, while the roleplay can be much more creative and open-ended. Generations is a unique system that has plans for when characters die, and actively encourages the action to gain more unique powers.

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.
