A Pillar of Sorrow (Awakening Dream RPG)

Watermarked PDF

The Awakening Dream Role Playing Game is a dynamic new d10 Sword and Sorcery system that combines extensive and immersive World Lore with dynamic mechanics that promise encounters will never get stale or repetitive. No longer is your character bound by mechanics and disjointed from lore--in ADRPG, your character is part of the narrative, shaped completely by the world around them.

The Pillar of Sorrow is the first "Quickstart" guide for this system and offers the following:

- Character Creation Rules, which aren't based on levels: purchase your abilities directly with the experience you earn!

- Social Encounters Mechanics centered around a "rock, paper, scissors" system.

- Combat Mechanics, which features "combat groups" and over a dozen options for actions.

- In depth lore for the First Feud, the confrontation around which this release is based.

- Four premade characters

- A starter campaign that should take around 8 sessions.

This material has been extensively playtested by the designers, but is still in development. We thank you for your feedback and understanding.

Sorry about that, I forgot there's a whitelist of only a few sites we can actually link to.

Here's the link (copy and paste it) to our newsletter, which updates twice a month and which will deal with updates and discounts for this system. Thanks for your interest!

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.
