Gaia Awakening - Core Rulebook


Humanity has laid spiritually dormant for millennia. Since the Bronze Age collapse, and the Dark Age of Humanity, the severance of Gaia’s link to Universal energy has waned. Magic fell into the realm of myth. Those who felt the calling of Universal energy, so tenuously a connection as it was, fell into the fringes of society. As human beings became more aware that their leaders had a vested interest in narrowing their perspective, the clamour for freedom turned the tide. 

 Whether the state of Gaia in 2050 reflects a struggling old world on the brink of apocalypse or a flourishing new world finally free, the Awakening represents an opportunity for human beings to re-connect with their inner strength.

Gaia Awakening uses a unique, simple system to allow Players to create Characters they wish to play and enables Storytellers to tell the story they wish to tell.

Is the magic system freeform?

The short answer is yes. There are Aspects which govern each "type" of Magic, and each Aspect contains a number of standard Abilities. If a Player has a concept for an Ability however, or if the Storyteller wishes to introduce a new set of Abilities - great. Just come to an understanding of which Aspect the Ability would fall under (so it is known which Skill Rating will be used as a modifier), define the parameters, and you're ready to go.

So does that mean using these aspects one can improvise magical effects on the fly?

Yes, definitely. That's something I've done, and would be keen to hear your results.

My apologise Matthew, I realise you were trying to bring this to my attention for some time, and I thank you for that. I have ensured the Gaia Awakening CRB is free in the current Bundle (and will do so for all Bundles it is included with going forward), so should not cost anything for previous All Product purchasers.

This book is missing from the All Products bundle which I purchased. Was that intentional, or because it was recently updated?

I apologise sincerely - this was not intentional and I was not aware that updating the file would have any detrimental affects. This has now been rectified and will remain so on all future Bundles.

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.
