Watermarked PDF

The Realm of the Gateway

Imagine a world trapped, locked in a dimensional gateway.  Forever caught between a dimension of magic and one of science.  Where the two meet; chaos.

The Realm of the Gateway is a multi-genre game, with a unique setting that swings from sword and sorcery to spaceships and robots.  The game consists of 4 core rulebooks.  The First book is The Basic Rules.  This book gives all the rules for play, from character creatuion to combat.  Then there are the setting books.

The Magic Realm: The land of high fantasy.  Where Elves and dwarves fight side by side, keeping the forces of darkness at bay.  Magic is a very real, and very powerful force in the Magic Realm.

The Science Realm:  Where the land meets the sky.  Domed cities dot the land, strange and mysterious organizations lurk in the shadows, and unknown forces lie in deep space.  Where humans, androids and cyborgs live and work side-by-side.

The Death Zone:  When magic meets science, the world goes mad.  The Death Zone is a land of chaos, where probability itself shifts and warps reality.  Even life is warped, with mutants living and dying striving to survive.

The Basic Rules has all the rules needed for basic play:

  •  Character creation.  
  •  Rules for skills and professions.  Characters are built with skills, allowing every character to be unique.
  •  Rules for combat.  Combat is tactical and deadly.  Damage is based on how well you hit and where.
  •  Rules for the use of Willpower including over 20 psionic abilities.  These are the base rules for magic and mutations.
  •  Dozens of creatures, some common to our world, other's unique to the lands.  All can be deadly to the unwary.

A complete, unique setting, a world that can be used to create any adventure you desire.

Do you dare enter The Realm of the Gateway?

Hi. Just a bit of constructive feedback - a grey background is not print friendly, let alone a graded alternating blue & grey, and neither are good to read, particularly with light blue text. Even light blue text on white is bad for both screen and print. Any chance that the colours can be changed or more eye & print friendly options made available. Otherwise sadly reading this is too much like hard work and will never get played, which is a shame.

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.
