Unity RPG Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF


Punished, forsaken and left for dead by the very hand that created them, four races must come together and unite against the grim horrors of a world set on fire.

Unity is an epic fantasy tabletop RPG. The unique setting blends high fantasy with a flavourful dose of arcane-infused technology. Unity focuses on telling spectacular stories while emphasizing teamwork with a combat engine that allows players to combine their powers and develop interesting synergies for a deep and fulfilling tactical experience. 

Explore the forgotten remnants of a once Golden Age when mortals rose to challenge gods. Rediscover long forgotten ancient technologies that blur the lines between reality and wonder. Stride atop colossal mechanized machines of war from a bygone era. Embrace the discovery of new and exciting cultures in a scarred landscape full of secrets and hidden beauty.  
In a world that teeters on the brink of apocalypse, become the dim light of hope that shines among a sea of darkness or take advantage of the chaos in the world and make your own mark. Whatever flavour of adventure you choose, you will have to work together to achieve it. 

The Core Rulebook includes everything you need to play:

  • Full roleplaying rules for character creation, adventuring, and combat.
  • Full setting guide that explores the world of Unity and its rich history.
  • 4 Factions complete with cultural write-ups and short stories.
  • 9 Classes and hundreds of power combinations to master.
  • Mysterious and perilous locations to explore.
  • Deadly foes to fight.
  • Powerful treasures to acquire.
  • A Game Master’s Guide.

The Digital PDF comes fully bookmarked and all page references are hyperlinked.

Is there any further support for this book? Love the art, system, story etc, but there doesn't seem to be any other material. It's such a great game and it'd be a shame to see it die before its time.

There are some comments over on the original Kickstarter page that suggest the sole developer may not have made it through COVID. Nothing confirmed, but all of the social media channels went silent just after the pandemic started and that would explain why.

Can't review the game here since I've bought it on the Modiphious store, but I'm a huge supporter. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a modern, thrilling, immersive and (gameplay wise) funny experience with a mid-crunch tone and the extra flavor permeating all classes and world entries.
Just get it. It's a masterpiece.

Hello, I bought the PDF of this game from the Zensara website a while back. Is there a way you would be willing to migrate my purchase over to OneBookShelf? The old download link no longer works. Please let me know if you can help!

I received the digital format of this book in exchange for a fair review by Modiphius Entertainment (distributor).

I love this book. I want to play in this world. I want to experience leading a group of people telling a story together through this system. Those were all of the thoughts that I had while I was reading the core rulebook. The world is fascinating blending of the fantastic and the technological. It reminded me somewhat of Numenera where the lines between magic and technology are not clear. The world mixes the divine and the mundane in a fascinating way. This is a world where gods can be brought down by mortals and mortals can have their world turned upside down by gods. This game makes it possible to play a wizard who manipulates magical forces from beyond the material plane or a bio-mechanical outcast who is part of a team that pilots a building sized mech.

The Unity game is a cooperative storytelling game using a role-playing format. The system relies on the the best story...See more

Are there any places were a physical copy can be bought? A google search just seems to bring up the unity game engine for video games.

Not sure if I can post links here but if you Google "Unity Tabletop RPG" or "Zensara Studios" it's the first site. I recently bought another book and the GM Screen off their official website no problem.

First off : this book is great i love everything about it. The combat system and equipment are really well thougt and used. I just have two little questions :
1) About the Danger Level of monster : i quite don't understand how it works. How does DL interact with players ? Do you sum up lvl of character and compare it to the sum of monster's DL to estimate the challenge it would be ?
2) I love creating settings and i wondered how would you create new races power like furian's Unbound without making it unbalanced ?

Saw this game announced awhile ago and kept an eye on it and now that it is released, i have to say this is great job from everybody ;)

13th Age player here (among 1000 other titles, obviously xD) and I see tons of similarities in terms of mindset...
Can anyone tell me more about the "non-combat" side of the game? Core Paths seem to accomplish what Backgrounds do in 13th Age, but I feel like there's even more room for CP to be a very nice mechanic, summed up with a thrilling setting.

Any insight is welcome!

Hi there on page 139, option 2 for distributing points does this have the right points as the example does not make sense as it is laid out.

Hello! Thanks so much for the support and I’m glad to hear you are enjoying the book :)

To address your comments:

1) Page 139 for distributing attributes (Option 2). Totally understand where the confusion is regarding the graphical layout. Are you assuming we would add +2 to MIGHT and -1 to PRESENCE just because of the way they are lined up on the page?

Here was our intention: If we strip away the columns, try to think of option 2 as simply, “I get to add +2 to an attribute (as long as it doesn’t go over a total of 3) and I must subtract -1 from an attribute and I leave 2 of the other attributes alone”. So Maria’s example on that page is that she added +2 to her MIND of 0 (for a total of 2 MIND) and she subtracted -1 from her MIGHT of 2 (for a total of 1 MIGHT) and the rest of her attributes stay the same. While we state this in text, we could probably move it to a clearer space or maybe just before the example to help with clarity.

We added option...See more

Thanks for the quick response and yes I had assumed layout was where it was added and not put where you want. Both make much more sense now :)

For some reason I can't rate this product nor write a review (I got a coupon from the KS, I don't know if that has anything to do with it). Anyway, once I can vote, it'll be a 5 star rate from me. Awesome game with amazing artwork, totally worth it.

Thanks for the heads-up Thomas. We just fixed some stuff on the back-end. It should hopefully work now!

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.
