Rome has not fallen as history taught us

It’s the year 2771 a.U.c. (ab Urbe condita - from the foundation of Rome, our 2018 AD), the Empire controls not only the entire Earth but also numerous other worlds, both inside and outside our solar system.

War cruisers travel for millions of kilometers using the Limes Orbitalis that artificially curves space-time from the orbit of distant planets.

The new syncretistic philosophy of the Logos has extinguished the religious wars.

A council of Caesars from all over the planet form the Imperial Senate, presided by a single Augustus, chosen by the previous emperor.

Most of the inhabitants of the Empire live in a utopia of social justice, progress, and peace.

... what could possibly go wrong ...?

“Milites”, to arms! Come together under the banner of the Roman Humanity! Wear your “Tecnolorica”, activate your “Systemata”... ready yourself for the impact!In the cold, sidereal landscapes, something sinister, terrifying, alien to this universe lurks... but we will defend the Empire from its fearsome enemies, or we will die trying!

In Augusta Universalis you play as elite cyborgs called “Praetorians”, wearing exceptionally upgraded and expensive “Systemata” (biomechanical enhancements), who are able to transform themselves in stunning power armor!

You will face extraordinary fights and exploratory “Missiones” on distant and unknown planets. 

You will investigate the mysteries of alien civilizations that have disappeared from eons, and face the threat of the terrifying “Dark Thrones”, nightmarish creatures that bring death and destruction from the outside galaxy. You will defend the Empire, both from the political threats that tear it apart from the inside and from the enemies, trying to destroy it from the outside.

Are you ready to travel beyond the known stars for the greatest glory of Rome?

Augusta Universalis is a Uchronic Role Game of Humanity and Empires beyond the Stars. Published by Acchiappasogni, written by Marzio Morganti (setting) and Luca De Marini (game system), and illustrated by Fabio Porfidia and Gaetano Carlucci. The project was a success on Kickstarter and it has now been translated into English!

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.
