Ngen Mapu • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price $4.00

The Land is sick, and humans are the cause.

Not all of them, of course, and therein lies the problem. Civilization—that brash, incomprehensible, recent invention of humanity—tends to corrupt what it does not understand. And people really don't truly understand the Land (or mapu)... not any more.

As ngen—mighty, immortal, shapeshifting, and largely pacifistic beings from beyond the dawn of time—you each act as guardian of some aspect of the Land, be it water, laughter, lightning, dreams, or some other essential concept of existence. It's your job to undo the harm done to the Land and thereby move the world towards a better form.

But how can you guard the Land against something you barely understand yourself, when the path of violence risks turning you toward corruption and becoming a wekufe, a creature of darkness and destruction? Find out in Ngen Mapu, a new Fate World of Adventure of South American urban fantasy from Helena Real.

Inside this 43-page supplement you'll find:

  • An urban fantasy setting that merges modern civilization with the South American myths of the Mapuche people
  • Rules and advice on shifting away from conflicts as the main form of resolution, to support the pacifistic approaches of the ngen
  • Three new skills to reflect the preternatural abilities of the ngen: Heart, Wisdom, and Shapeshift (as well as some other alterations to the default Fate Core skill list)
  • Rules for tainted fate points which tempt the ngen towards corruption
  • Scale rules representing how difficult it is to change an aspect of the world with your mythic abilities
  • A starting adventure for your ngen: The Mother in the Doorstep 

Take the form of an animal, a stream, a leaf, a person, an idea.
Restore the Land as one of the ngen.

The Fate Adventures & Worlds line provides compact, rich, affordable, gorgeous settings with a ready-to-go adventure for GMs in a pinch. Buy one this afternoon, be ready to run this evening.

"I think the greatest thing [the adventure included in the book] shows off is its ‘Big Bad’, the human whose heart and mind the ngen must try to change in order to save the spring. The character isn’t just a sympathetic villain, she’s not [...]

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.
