Amethyst Factions (5E)

Selected Option:

(Also available for 13th Age, Pathfinder and 4th Edition GSL)

This is how the world ended, and this is how it began.



In this latest book, prepare to know many of the truths only hinted previously, entire lands and peoples revealed in intricate detail.  Secrets will be exposed.  New enemies will emerge.  No gods will save this world.  No prophecies will herald emerging heroes.  With sides established, where will you fall—with darkness or light, chaos or order, magic or technology?  Is there balance?  Will you and the world survive long enough to discover it. 

In Amethyst Factions, you will find the following...

  • New races.
  • New gear including powered armor and guns
  • New vehicles including spacecraft
  • Foundation spells and new magic items
  • Over 150 pages exploring the setting of Amethyst
  • Over fifty new monsters
  • A campaign guide
  • A new adventure: The Taking of Proto Jericho
  • Dozens of original illustrations from Hugo-nominated artist Nick Greenwood

So as someone interested in purchasing the books which book would you consider a starting book or core book to get into the Amethyst series using 5th edition rules?

Amethyst Quintessence is the starting book. Factions is the follow-up. Hearts of Chaos is an adventure. There is a package that includes all three.

I am sad that this will not make it to Savage Worlds. I am not a Savage Worlds fan myself (I much prefer 5e), but I found that version to be better for the setting than the 4e, 5e, or Pathfinder versions.

Wait....who said it wouldn't reach Savage Worlds? We are still working on the SW and Fate editions and they are expected out sometime soon.

Any chance of a PoD?

Absolutely. We are waiting for it to clear the proof phase, and once that occurs, we will be releasing it to the public. It is important to note that, as we have done every time previously, upon the release of the POD, everyone that purchased the PDF will receive a coupon in order to acquire the POD at cost, so you don't lose any money buying the PDF early (the PDF/POD bundle is only $1 more)

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.
