If the witches fail, chaos reigns forever.

Long ago, order was forged from chaos. And chaos didn’t like it. Ever since, the Darkshayde, the personification of disorder, has been trying to return the world to what it believes is its natural state. For a time, it was successful, but then the earth developed an immune system: magic, and chief among the practitioners of that art are the witches.

Hexpunk offers Cepheus Engine (a direct descendant of the Original Science-Fiction Roleplaying Game) players an urban fantasy mini-campaign based on shows such as Charmed, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, American Horror Story: Coven, even Teen Witch and Bewitched, against the backdrop of the age-old battle between order and chaos that has stretched into the modern day. The file includes a brief overview of the war between the Darkshayde and the witches; tweaks to 2D6 Magic, the magic system the campaign is based on; a brief bestiary of magical creatures; and a list of hero careers suitable for an urban fantasy romp.

Grab your spellbooks and gather the coven. The Darkshayde is coming…

Is this game self contained? Or does this game require the 2D6 Magic system be purchased as well?

Although it works best with 2D6 Magic (due to its improvisational nature), Hexpunk is generic enough that the Referee can use whatever magic system strikes his or her fancy. Two other systems that built for 2D6 are Zozer Games' Fast Magic, and Samardan Press' Flynn's Guide to Magic in Traveller, both available here on DTRPG.

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.
