Fateforge - 1 - Corebook: Adventurers

Suggested Price $25.00

We bring you the Fateforge Tetralogy in Pay What You Want.

This four-book collection won a silver ENnies Asward for Best Writing. It includes the core book Adventurers with a full expanded version of 5E system ; Creatures, a complete bestiary ; Grimoire the book of magic and Encyclopedia, a lore book about the world of Eana.

These books took several years of work to make. They are a declaration of love to this medium that has given us so much. Today, we want to spread it as much as possible in the community that has supported us so much. We would also be very happy if it could be an opportunity for new people to try role-playing games and to travel together through fabulous lands.




"Fateforge, Epic tales in the world of Eana for 5th Edition. A love letter to Sword & Sorcery and the world's greatest RPG, from the team behind Shadows of Esteren, the most awarded French RPG."

Welcome to Eana, an entirely new campaign setting for your 5th Edition adventures. Following the sword & sorcery tradition, the adventurers will travel through grandiose landscapes and interact with exotic, colorful civilizations, from the sprawling metropolis of the Free City to equatorial Acoatl.

Their journey will be fraught with peril and they will face many strange, fearsome opponents, be they the loathsome spawns of Canker, the demon princes from the moon Melancholia, or the formidable barbarian lords of the Kaani hordes.

By dint of skill, bravery, or cunning, they will overcome increasingly challenging ordeals, and perhaps find their way to the mythical Fateforge and ascend to godhood!

Adventurers is the core rulebook of the Fateforge series. It is intended for the use of both players and leaders, and is composed of three parts:

  • Character Creation

In conjunction with your game leader, determine the conditions in which your character may Awaken to magic, and choose from a plethora of options: nine playable species, eighteen civilizations, a step-by-step guide to creating your very own background, thirteen classes— including the scholar, a resourceful savant capable of contributing in every situation, even in regions devoid of magic—and many more archetypes, as well as a list of original feats to enhance the evolution of your hero.

  • Daily Life

Discover the mythic Free City and a body of dedicated rules to spice up the daily lives and journeys of adventurers. Mystery, exploration, and discovery form the core of the gaming experience. Answer the call of adventure and travel to faraway lands, whether by foot, by boat, or by nefelytron!

  • Game Rules

The game mechanics are organized into four categories: abilities, adventuring, combat, and health. Many optional rules are included, following a modular system that lets each leader define their own gaming style.

I got these books through a Kickstarter for Creature's 2 and I've been hooked ever since. The art is fantastic and my players are genuinely excited to play, many of them are even paying attention to the culture of the people and places they're from, which I just don't get from running Forgotten Realms or other settings. I know it sounds cliche, but they really made Eana a rich world in FateForge. My only regret is that there isn't more. I'm excited for the upcoming Encyclopedia 2, which explores the Netherworld (this setting's Underdark), but I really want to see what they do with the rest of the surface world, there's some floating island I want more information on durnit!

Well, the books as pdfs are incredible. 400 pages.
If you have ever held a 400 page book, you can understand why 4 books of this size is a lot of content.

What were the update changes?

I second this request to understand what the recent update was. There are two books listed in my library, one has a date of 01-09-21 in the title which I presume is therefore an old book. The second one is exactly the same size in MB as the one I downloaded on 14/02/23. I wish DriveThru would list an updated date against each downloadable item and not a group of items.

Hi, Christopher and Stephen!

Sorry for the late reply, the last several months, since January, have been a blur.

We updated all our files with the new file format, which includes the date the PDF was made. This way, it'll be easy to know whether you have the latest version of the PDF. Even with older books, we use reprints as an opportunity to update our files and get rid of any remaining mistakes (you think you got them all, but a couple always gets through ^^).

Since we don't ourselves have a history of which exact version was distributed before, I can't tell you for sure if it was an older version, or the same that is up now. In the future, however, this shouldn't be an issue anymore.

Thanks a lot for your support, I hope you enjoy the book!

Discover this book by luck when I look for a drakeid illustration for a new character in the Eberron universe...
When I looked for its origin and discovered "Fateforge" by Agate RPG. The magic arise from these illustrations and the general layout of the Corebook: Adventurers serve creation of original characters and sketch variety of Eana's civilizations.
Another originality : modular system to calibrate the atmosphere of its "own Eana".
Nice discovery, pleasant reading, can't wait to test it in real life in D&D 5E !

An excellent variation of dd5 with a new class which is interesting. Furthermore, illustrations are beautiful, pages have a nice scrolled effect but easy to read.

This is an enhanced version of D&D 5e with many more rules, expanding on magic, corruption and darkness. The books are also the most beautiful ones I've ever own from the RPG industry (pathfinder, CoC, D&D 2,3,3.5 and 5). The illustrations are stunning!
If you haven't bought any WoTC product, this is a no-brainer. If, like me, you discover Fateforge after having purchased the core D&D rulebooks, it still is very much worth it! :)

It's an amazing product, especially when combined with.the other products in the Fateforge line. The world and lore it creates strikes a solid balance between a more gritty, realistic setting taking much inspiration from Eastern Europe and traditional DnD. The character class they came up with is also unique and balanced, while the revamp of the races feels like much thought went in to it to make them all 'connect.' I wholeheartedly recommend this product.

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.
