Scarred by war, Cursed by Magic

Ghestal, a world once ruled by beasts and magic unimaginable, now ruled by the most terrifying beast of all: man. In humanity’s greed and ambition, political turmoil turned to atomic fire. Nearly three decades have passed since the bombs fell and the old world with it. Now the remnants of civilization huddle behind massive walls in great super cities living in fear of fiends and horrors that stalk the land.

Only those who bear the Cursebrands, marks of corruption and damnation, are immune to the creeping death of the Miasma. They alone have the power to tread the wastelands and ruins of the old world in search of glory, wealth, ancient secrets, and perhaps the one treasure the world needs the most:


Machine and Magic Collide

The world of Cursebrand Chronicles is at the cusp of incredible technological progress. Mankind has discovered the means to power machines with magical energy: Mana. With the use of the strange crystals known as Lenz technology that defies the laws of science has become possible. Machines that almost seem to have a soul of their own. But all of this technology is based on something far more ancient that mankind does not yet fully understand.

The Cursebrands

In the years following the atomic war that devastated the northern nations, cursed clouds of magical fallout began to lay the world to ruin. Yet at the same time children began to appear who were immune to the Miasma. Each bore a strange mark, and some possessed even stranger powers. Theses became known as the Cursebrands.

In Cursebrand Chronicles you take on the role of a branded adventurer that you create. Perhaps a hero, perhaps a villain, perhaps something a little bit of both. Your character will be defined by their Deeds and their Temperament, because even the best and worst of us are more than good or evil.

One System, Infinite Possibilities

With the Promethium system, your Cursebrand Chronicles character is built from a background which describes your socioeconomic origins. Ability Scores and primary Traits are all dictated by your species: human. With Promethium's innovative class and skill system you can become anything, no matter where you choose to start your career. Using Skill Points, you can learn and upgrade any skill or ability.

In Cursebrand Chronicles, your character's class unlocks a suite of Skills and Talents for you to upgrade as you progress, but you are not locked into any class. Promethium's innovative Skill Trees allow you to upgrade and customize your character at every level, endlessly. Using Skill Points you can branch out and develop any of these powers in time. Your character can learn Techniques, develop Lenz, and receive upgrades through Mechanetic augmentation.

But you don’t have to wait. Get the Core Edition Rulebook now to play with seven backgrounds and character classes, customized with a complete selection of Cursebrands, talents, techniques, and Lenz!

So . . . I can download two files, one about 2 MB smaller than the other, both different from the 11/22/2021 update, both saying "Second Printing, October 2021" on the title page. What's the difference?!?

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.
