Retroscape: Decopunk RPG

Watermarked PDF

Swing into the decopunk SciFi setting of Retroscape! Retroscape is an an electroswing-inspired RPG designed for escalating combat, exciting decisions, and heart-racing action.

After the third great war, technology became seen as the cause of humanity’s downfall, and the survivors created a prohibition around the world against the pursuit of science. Within the city of Delphi, however, technology was a guardian, protecting its citizens. 80 years later, Delphi has turned into a Utopia and the technology has grown. You are a member of a Lab, an organization tasked with safeguarding and advancing technology within a post-apocalyptic world. You alter weather patterns with reality-warping portals, connect you mind to massive satellites watching over nearby areas, or are a super soldier that splices your own bodies with the DNA of monsters in order to protect the city.

This book has everything you need for characters from levels 1 through 4. Players will find character creation to be quick and easy, with their imagination being the limit of what they can create. Narrators will find monsters, adventures, and more, giving them all the tools they will need to create stories that will be told around the game table for years to come.

Hi I could be interested in purchasing this, but I'd like to at least be able to see a preview first.
Is any kind of preview available ?

Thanks. :)

Hi Moreno!
There should be a 30 page preview here. There are also complete playtesting documents at that can be reviewed.

Thanks Daniel.

Unluckily, the preview does not seem to be available here, at least for me: I can see neither the "Quick preview" nor the "Full-size preview" link.

I'll check out the playtesting docs - thanks for pointing those out for me. :)

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.
