Blades & Blasters Title V2

NOW A SILVER BESTSELLER

The Invasion Begins...

Empower yourself with all the tools necessary to slash, cast, and shoot your way through aliens, spaceships, laser guns, and more in my new sourcebook for 5th Edition. The Blades & Blasters: Bestiary & Rulebook introduces a high-tech alien invasion into the swords and sorcery world of 5e. This is not a stand-alone gaming system, but rather a supplement to the core rules and settings of 5E.

The book is the core rulebook to be used for creating new sci-fi fantasy adventures for 5e. It contains rules for new weapons, technologies, and vehicles, as well as a host of exciting new alien races and monsters to encounter and accompanying lore to investigate.

The Bestiary & Rulebook is designed with versatility in mind. Use it to spice up an existing story, or as the core of a fresh campaign; set of a world of hacking and slashing and laser beams, or opt for a tale of intrigue and deadly mystery as extraterrestrial strangers infiltrate society. The choice is yours!

In the Blades & Blasters: Bestiary & Rulebook, you will find:

  • 10 Short Stories
  • 17 New Armors
  • 35 New Weapons
  • 26 Other Items
  • 17 New Feats
  • 23 Alien Monsters

... and more! 

The number of amazing artists who worked on this book exceeds the limit of DriveThruRPGs Artist(s) panel at the side, so only Sketchy-Art, the main designer on the project, appears there. All the other illustrators are listed below. 

Shivam Akshay, Bastien Aufrere, Maxine Azzara, John Cacatian, Anna Chadwick, Taylor ChristensenDakota Curry, Mateusz Dąbrowski, Jason DeParto, Octavianus Gozali, Michał Grześkow, Peter Hurman, Daniel Johnson, Cat Long, Herbert Losloso, Ed Mattinian, Pau Pujadas, Nantu Sorina, David Sutherland, Jhonnatan Timoteo, Seth Tomlinson, Francisco Villa, Christina Weinman, Faezan Zakaria

This looks intriguing. Does it use the classes in D&D 5e or does it have its own classes?

It's designed to compliment the existing rules, settings and classes of D&D. So you could be a party of fighters, wizards, rogues, etc. who run into a crashed alien ship and have to fight off or ally with alien invaders, and maybe learn to use their technology.

I am in the process of writing a second rulebook which will include a variety of playable alien races as well as new classes and backgrounds. But that's a long way from completion at this point

Format
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.
