Shadow of the Beanstalk

Watermarked PDF

In the not so-distant future, humanity has spread out across the solar system, unlocked the frontiers of cyberspace, and created millions of intelligent androids in its own image. At the heart of this progress stands a ladder leading to the riches of the stars—the massive space elevator called the Beanstalk. And at its base sprawls the biggest, meanest, and most exciting city on Earth: New Angeles.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present Shadow of the Beanstalk, an Android Sourcebook for the Genesys Roleplaying System!

Take on the role of cops, con artists, roughnecks, and escaped androids trapped between greedy corporations, corrupt officials, and vicious street gangs. Outwit your foes, uncover their conspiracies, flee their retribution, and maybe you’ll survive. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get rich...

Shadow of the Beanstalk is a 256-page sourcebook for use with the Genesys Roleplaying System. In this book, you’ll find new rules for character creation, new weapons, equipment, and adversaries, new rules for running the net, information on the Android Universe, and advice for gamemasters running a campaign in the cyberpunk future of Android. All of this accompanied by beautiful art and elegant mechanics that can be used in any setting for the Genesys roleplaying system.

Maybe further expansion of Android RPG line would be more preferable. From your past publication, I know you can make some awesome thick fluff, not to mention long list of errata for the crunch as well.

How useful is this book if you have Worlds of Android and don't plan to use the Genesys system?

Shadow of the Beanstalk offer 75-85% rules and character options, and a small amount of setting to get the "mood".

Cheers. Sounds like I am better off sticking with Worlds of Android for my preferences. Thanks.

I've started reading this and it's pretty solid so far. Are there plans to also release the Worlds of Android hardcover in PDF? I'm lucky enough to have a copy, but you kind of need it to get the most out of this book. Just sayin'...

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.
