Gates [BETA]

Watermarked PDF

You are a Gate Strider, an explorer of worlds, a slayer of gods, and a creator of legends. You have explored countless worlds in your short life, each filled with adventure, danger and  treasure. You have seen living mountains spit enough fire to engulf entire worlds, islands that float in oceans of clouds, and glass cities whose air is charged with the power of miracles.

 These sights are in your past, and your future has been blessed to be brighter yet. But you do not travel alone and your companions create legends as powerful as your own. Grand wizards, clad in bustling machinery with the power to destroy or create life; scoundrels, born in shadows and whose whispers are the four winds themselves;  illustrious knights, bathed in holy light, whose fervent zealotry is matched only by their loyalty; and monstrous creatures from dreams and nightmares alike; all these you call your friends and your fellow Gate Striders.

Being a Gate Strider is the path to freedom, freedom to be where you want, to do what you want and to become whatever you desire.

Your fate is in your hands, step through the Gate…

Gates is a Tabletop Roleplaying game about going from world to world and having fantastic, epic adventures. This game has a breadth of rules that create unique characters from anyplace real or imagined. Moment to moment gameplay revolves around exploration, discovery, cinematic gameplay, and unique multi-genre interactions.

Each world in the grand multiverse of Gates is unique to itself. Each has a different tone and genre. A horror world would create a chilling adventure for the heros, but the next session could take place in a high action superhero world. Characters are similarly different, with parties that consist of characters from many different worlds. Though, over time a character, called Gatestrider, will pick up bits and bobs from the worlds they travel too. Spells from a world of witchcraft will benefit even the most teched out of cyber-ninjas.

This is a living document that will change and alter until the full game is released.

Key Features:

  • A robust and detailed character creation and advancement system that can create any world trotting hero.

  • Cinematic combat with easy to use movement systems.

  • World system to make every world feel unique, not just another location.

  • Magical ritual and artifact rules to give your characters that spark of magic.

  • Modular equipment and weapons to make your hero unique.

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.
