What is Ebon Fantasy?

Ebon Fantasy applies modern RPG concepts to the classic fantasy system, creating a game that's new and familiar at the same time. Characters have the traditional attributes, along with "kindreds" (races), classes, levels, hit points, and familiar mechanics. To these, however, we've added modern mechanics:

  • Traits: represent specific abilities within the games. Classes and Kindreds give characters bundles of traits, and then can gain advancements allowing them to gain additional traits as they level up.
  • Backgrounds: in addition to Kindred, which represents their species, characters have backgrounds that represent things they learned as they grew up. Backgrounds can be specific to cultures, allowing greater customization of the game world.
  • Specialties: instead of subclasses or additional classes, Ebon Fantasy has specialties which grant additional traits extending your class. You can gain traits from other specialties as you advance - you're never locked into a particular path.
  • Effects: outcomes of actions are represented in the game as effects, with a strength and a description. 
  • Mental and Social Combat: characters have Mental Defense and Mental Resilience, allowing the general combat rules to be applied to debates, arguments, persuasion attempts, and so forth.

Give it a try - we think you'll like it!

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.
