Crystal Heart

Selected Option:
Softcover, Premium Color Book
PDF + Softcover, Premium Color Book

In the world of Crystal Heart, people's hearts are literally made of stone. Agents of the mysterious organization Syn scour the world in search of Crystals, powerful relics of a bygone age. 

Syn Agents replace their hearts with these Crystals, which grant incredible powers... but also affect the bearer’s personality in unpredictable ways.

Inspired by the styles and sensibilities of anime and superhero media, the Crystal Heart setting was developed in the webcomic Up to Four Players as the characters were playing it. Now you too can become a Syn Agent, explore ancient ruins and hunt down powerful Crystals!

Become an Agent of Syn, replace your heart with a Crystal and gain superpowers! 

(also lose your mind, but just a little)

The book includes...

  • Rules for using and misusing Crystals

  • Dozens of Crystals for your players to find

  • Guidelines for creating new Crystals

  • Everything you need to know about Syn (and a few things you shouldn’t know)

  • Adventure-inspiring details on each of the Five Lands

  • A full Plot Point campaign spanning 8 adventures

  • Adversaries worthy of your antagonism, whether human, animal or Crystal-touched

  • And all the Edges, Hindrances, weapons and setting rules needed to create the coolest Crystal Heart experience possible

You also get...

  • A Player's Guide, which includes only the first few chapters of the book (those that don't have any secret stuff), to share with the group.
  • Agent and Crystal sheets

  • A summary sheet of the Crystal Channeling rules.

Crystal Heart is designed for the popular roleplaying game Savage Worlds (Adventure Edition)

Thank you.

Is there word on when hard copies will be available for purchase? I have been scouring the internet and FLGS and am still coming up with blanks.

Heyo! It'll probably only be sometime during January. Once we know dates we'll post updates on Up to Four Players' social feeds, and we'll pin the post so it'll be visible.

Just a quick question - are the rules self-contained, or is Savage Worlds needed to play?
Customer avatar
Eran A November 23, 2019 11:33 am UTC
Savage Worlds is indeed needed, specifically Adventure Edition.

Unfortunately I missed the kickstarter for this, is there any news as to whether or not there's going to be a print-on-demand version?
Customer avatar
Eran A July 31, 2019 5:10 pm UTC
Eventually there probably will be; but before that, the regulary-printed version will be available in about three months, through, probably, most shops. At least online.

In the meantime, more than a year has passed. Any news on a PoD version?
Customer avatar
Eran A September 21, 2020 10:39 am UTC
Physical copies have been available for many months:
As for a PoD version, it's likely to happen before 2021, but we're in no rush because there are still stocks of physical copies.

Hey love the book. Love the comic.

I can't seem to find the book anywhere. It was on but not the US store. Any idea where I can get a copy at in the states?
Customer avatar
Eran A November 04, 2021 8:36 am UTC
I'm afraid that currently the only way to get it in the US is through local stores who stock Modiphius stuff (you might be able to ask them to order this, if they don't stock it right now).

It's worth mentioning that the download includes the full Crystal Heart book AND a Players Guide.

Adventure Edition ?

Eran A July 15, 2019 2:31 pm UTC
Yep, this one right here:

Originally your setting was sheduled for Deluxe Edition, not too much work refitting it for Adventure Edition ?
Customer avatar
Eran A July 15, 2019 3:28 pm UTC
Nope, from the moment we learned of SWADE, we started converting it.

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.
