LexOccultum: LEX LIBRIS

Europe, the 18th century. The church is losing its grip on men struggling with old beliefs and dogmas. Alchemists, occultists, and secret societies dig deep into old mysteries and ancient obscurities. The Enlightenment is not only about breaking free from old institutions and structures, but also about discovering what has been hidden for hundreds of years, even millennia. The Illuminati, the Freemasons, the old Templars, and other secret societies hide in dark chambers, plotting for a new world order, or seeking to uncover the mysteries of dark arts and ancient wisdoms.

The nobles and aristocrats are a dying breed, living in decadence and excess, while the common people suffer in poverty. This is an era of enlightenment, but also of ignorance. Few know anything about the growing darkness; the vampires and other offspring of the devil. While conspiracies grow below the surface, kings and priests preach about submission and obedience. But who is to save men from this twilight of the gods, from falling into the darkness and being consumed by evil? Is it true that the apocalypse is coming?

LexOccultum takes place in a fictive historical 18th century, where the occult and supernatural are real, but not yet in full bloom.

Lex Libris contains the core rules for the Game Master to run the game, including the following chapters:

Introduction * Combat * Health and Fear * Impressions

Life in the Wild * The World * Sub Rosa * The Secret Arts

Load your flintlocks, light your lanterns, and step into the crypt: this is LexOccultum! Awarded ”Game of the Year” in Sweden under its previous name Götterdämmerung, the roleplaying game of occultism, mysteries, and secret societies in an 18th century setting is here!

This is the twilight of the gods.

Welcome to LexOccultum.

agree with previous arguments knowing that 18 cent rpg for d100 are already commons.

27 euro for a pdf with just 248 pages and then this is not even a complete core rulebook because you still need a second PDF for player characters, which is another 20 euro. No thanks. That's way too expensive. I will skip this one for sure.

It's a shame, because this games looks like something very much in my wheelhouse, but I'm not going to spend over fifty American dollars on two PDFs that together total fewer than 400 pages. Respectfully, I am not sure that the publisher is charging what the market (at least in the United States) will bear.

Looks cool... But I'm not going to pay that price either.

I know their stuff is a pretty penny, but I really recommend it if you can afford it. The setting just oozes occult and atmosphere. I backed the kickstarter and don't regret it for a moment.

Also their Trudvang stuff is of the same quality.

Kickstarter backers get the print pretty much at half price and PDFs for free. Whereas store customers pay a hefty dime for the same book and for the PDF extra. And the PDF is also priced above average. I was definitely interested when I saw this but I refuse to pay more than double than somebody else for the same thing.

It's not even paying more than a KS backer or paying extra for a PDF that irks me. It's the extreme disparity that gives huge discounts to some part of the customer base and milks everyone else. I can deal with paying 20% more than a backer, maybe even 40%, but this game and Trudvang Chronicles... this pricing is definitely a deal killer, over and over.

I remember when PDFs were making the hobby MORE affordable... too many companies are splitting things up between 2 or more 20-30 dollar pdfs to just get the core rules.

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.
