Additional options for the creation of aspiring heroes

Even though the Age of Ambition core rulebook comes jam-packed with lifepath and character options, not even it can contain all of the archetypes, concepts and abilities that Trystell has to offer.

Age of Ambition: Character Options contains a variety of new choices, both for players making a new character and for GMs looking to customize the lifepath system for their campaigns. Its features include:

  • Lifepath options for creating more experienced starting heroes and for increased player control.
  • Astrological Birth Fortune tables designed for creating heroes influenced by the stars.
  • Two new Fighting Styles, a new Arcane Lore, two new Traits, rules for hybrid peoples and a new Career.
  • Numerous optional tables for establishing your hero’s name, creed, idiosyncrasy, appearance, distinguishing features, personality and background.

Designed for use with Age of Ambition: Fantasy Roleplaying in an Age of Promise or Peril.

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.
