The gods are dead, but they are not gone. Their bodies remain, brimming with divine power in forgotten nebulas or darkened corners of the void. Most who seek to steal this power find death, but the few who succeed become gods themselves.

Imagine a galaxy torn apart by a war between titanic gods. Starships battle dragons, all clawing their way toward the precious magic that lies within the bodies of dead gods...Catalysts. You're an adventurer seeking them out to increase your own magic.

Ever wanted to play a Mage Killer, or a Spellsniper? How about a Relic Hunter, or an Eradicator? Wondered if an Elder Void Wyrm can survive a nuke salvo? Want to steal magic from eldritch gods, and watch your armor and weapons grow stronger as they drink the same magic?

You're in the right place!

Your purchase includes the complete rules, two full adventures (in the main book), and a fully editable PDF character sheet.

The Magitech Chronicles RPG is based on the Amazon best-selling novels, which are even better on Audible. We currently have 10 books in print with more on the way! Join us, Outrider.

Please feel free to request a refund if you'd like. We distribute the sheets, but can't know what you're opening them with. Here's the link to the direct character sheet download in case you didn't get it for any reason. It should be as simple as opening it in any PDF reader: https://dl.bookfunnel.com/mk2f79eq2s

If we purchase the PDF will it be possible to email someone for a discount on the PoD price if we decide on that option down the line? Thanks!

I don't believe so, but that's handled through DriveThruRPG and they might be able to accommodate that kind of request if they can see the PDF on your account already.

I see, I have seen a few publishers off that option and was curious to know if you'd be able to accommodate it. I am interested in purchasing this product as a PDF first but would feel as if I am losing out if I "upgrade" to a PoD+PDF later down the line.

Would love to see you explore this option in the future!

I saw in the Kickstarter that there was a Saga stretch goal for backers. Will this adventure be available to purchase for non-backers down the line?
Customer avatar
Chris F December 24, 2020 6:37 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
That's already in the main book. We missed the goal, but because we used backerkit we were able to take pledges after the fact and still hit the milestone. It's the First Contact adventure listed in the ToC =)

In the character creation videos by Chris Fox he says, that the race of Ifret will be available in the final release of the book. I just bought the pdf + print and started reading the pdf. Under character creation ifrets are NOT listed as a playble race?? Is this not the final version of the book? In the descritption it says "Your purchase includes the complete rules, two full adventures (in the main book), and a fully editable PDF character sheet." Why are the ifret not in the pdf? Will the be in the print?

You purchased the final version of the book. Ifrit were pushed along with the other elemental races to the player's guide. I apologize for the confusion, but the video was recorded long before the book was complete, and we didn't know what would be possible in the kickstarter.

All primal races begin play with an extra Catalyzation of their type, so Ifrit get a free fire Catalyzation which they usually spend on magic. However, they cannot gain their opposite, so an Ifrit will never get water. Ifrit gain +1 strength, as strength is the attribute linked to fire.

The official write up will be on our World Anvil page in January, and the Player's Guide will contain the write up and artwork. I wish we could have gotten it into the main book =/

Thanks for the fast answer. Looking forward to the print and very much enjoy the books (I am about to finish the 4th book). Just as a heads up: Does the RPG contain any spoilers for the books?
Customer avatar
Chris F December 23, 2020 8:17 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
I cannot say with 100% certainty that there are no spoilers, but I tried to keep a lot of that content for the Player's Guide. If you want to be safe avoid reading the GM's guide to the sector and I think you should be good =)

When is the playersguide sceduled? I could also Do with a major movie or game Adaption. I am really sucked in.

We're running the Player's Guide Kickstarter on January 30th. So excited! We've been hashing out the contents in the Facebook group. Today we're working on Paths, and cooked up the Sorcerer archetype as well.

I've been approached by a game studio, but they wanted to make a mobile game and I'm more interested in something like Pillars of Eternity. I think I'd prefer an animated series over a movie, but both could happen in the next year or two =)

Awesome. I could also see this as something in the lines of Mass Effect. Rejecting a mobile game was definitly the right choice in my opinion.

Would it be possible to have a preview that's much than just the character sheet? Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice and stylish character sheet, but on it's own it doesn't do much to sell me on the game itself.

You should be able to download the first 58 pages for free =). There is a sample available, and you can also get it on our website if you have any trouble getting it here.

Is it still possible to get in on the physical copies of this game? I read the first book and really liked it, but totally missed the Kickstarter.

I had a look at the last update for the KS, dated 23/9, and apparently there were some issues with the print proof which have now been corrected. The proofs for the various editions appear to be good according to the comments, and Chris believes they may begin shipping as soon as tomorrow (Monday 12/10).

I think it is reasonable to assume that once all of the KS pledges are fulfilled the various POD versions will be released to general purchase here, so I wouldn't worry too much about getting a physical copy, it will likely be just a matter of waiting a while longer.

Eventually, but not in the short term. We're still learning the ropes, and until the Pandemic dies down supply problems abound from our initial research.

Is there much setting information here? I was told that it was mostly mechanics with very little in the way of a defined "world" (or universe). Would I have to mine the novels for setting information? Hopefully not as the novels are heavily constrained to the perspectives of the characters.
Customer avatar
Chris F August 28, 2020 2:29 am UTC
PUBLISHER
Good question! There’s quite a bit of setting information. From an overview of the sector”s major powers, to common catalysts, to rules to generating your own. We’ve also included several short stories in the text itself for flavor.

I’ve played everything from Rifts to Shadowrun to D&D to Champions, and I’ll stand our main book setting info up against theirs. There’s obviously the limitation that we haven’t released full setting books, which are coming, but there is enough to get a game rolling anywhere in the sector =)

Pop over to World Anvil if you’re curious. The chapters in question are online. If there are more things you want to see the player”s guide is coming, as well as a Ternus/Gear book, and a magic / relic hunting book.

Thank you! It's surreal I'm not going to lie. Can't believe we're getting to play, and we are all so excited to hold our first copy. Every morning I wake up and run to check for the email from the designer, as it will come any time! I'll let you know once we've got a proof approved. I'm hoping it's worth the wait =)

Each character gets two actions, and how they can spend them is determined by their path and archetype. Actions are generic, but spells can be learned on the fly and customized to the character. There's a fair amount of gear with some pretty decent artwork, but it being a main book there's room for a lot more. We have a decent number of starships, cyberware, weapons, and magic items =)
Customer avatar
Mark E August 22, 2020 8:11 am UTC
PURCHASER
Quick questions - are there a variety of actions per character (got burned out in Age of Sigmar quickly with same actions every round), a good deal of choices for character depth, and a large variety of gear (with prices vs skill checks)?
Customer avatar
Chris F September 01, 2020 7:01 am UTC
PUBLISHER
I don't know how I missed this. Sorry for the late reply. There are only actions. However, an action can be used to do virtually anything, and is designed to support narrative game play. Opening a door, moving, firing a spellrifle, or hacking a computer all count as an action. Each player gets 2 per round. For gear there's a fair amount in the main book. Something like ~30 weapons. Maybe more? A fair number of vehicles, cyberware, etc, but do keep in mind it's just the main book and much more expansive books are coming. Definitely check out the world anvil page to see new content!

This is just my opinion but the bookmarks for the pdf probably could be more specific than just listing chapter numbers and page numbers rather than the contents of those chapters and pages. Otherwise I love this book and want to run it with my group soon.

Feedback is welcome. This is the first project for many of us, so every time you point something like this out it means we can get it right for the next book, and correct it for this one. =)

Cool, glad to help. A well organized bookmark list for PDF's helps alot of people who only buy the PDF's cause they lack room for physical books like me.

Quick question, Chris. Is there going to be a discount for buying the PDF and a hard copy together? I want both, but I probably won't get the PDF until the POD is available if that's the case.

Yes, if you buy a physical book I do intend to bundle the pdf for free. Seems only fair. We’ll get physical copies up next week I hope!

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.
