Guardians Within

Suggested Price $3.99

You are not alone. Within you is another soul, another Spirit. It is a Guardian that watches over you, gives you strength, and keeps you company.

Guardians Within is a mod for the Sigil System that deals with summoners and spirits, from becoming possessed by these aetheric creatures, to summoning them as grand displays of supernatural power, to seeing the world through unnatural eyes.

Unfortunately, not everything in life is free, as gaining a Guardian Spirit as a life-long companion does not come cheap. You have two choices: become a Keeper and accept the Guardian Spirit into your body, or be a Shepherd and let the Spirit live in your mind. Keepers are immensely powerful beings, using the Guardian Spirit's aetheric connections to alter the natural landscape around them, boost their own skills and abilities, heal themselves and even visit the aether itself. But the price they pay for this is the changes to their bodies. The more a Keeper uses his Spirit powers, the more mutations he gains until by the end of his life he looks like (and often becomes) a Guardian Spirit himself.

On the other hand are the Shepherds, who suffer no outwardly problems as the Spirit lives in their psyches. This brings other problems, however. Each time they summon their Guardian to aid them in the real world, they lose memories to fuel the aetheric energies within the Spirit. They have been given the greatest power imaginable by being able to summon a veritable force of nature to do their bidding, yet slowly but surely they lose who they are. Eventually all Shepherds lose their entire memories and everything that makes them who they are. They become the vehicles and tools of their Guardian Spirits, meat puppet to ferry around the aetheric overlord inside.

Choose wisely who you will become. Each will give you the power of the aether itself, but both will take from you everything.

Since Guardians Within is a mod (or addon) for the Sigil System, you will need the Sigil System in order to use it. It is also setting-neutral so you can use it for any setting or genre that you can think of.

Inside the mod:

  • Rules for playing as a Spirit Caller, a character who has bound a Guardian Spirit to his soul
  • In depth look at how offering your body to a Spirit as a Keeper will mutate it in 100 different ways to become something otherwordly
  • Rules for summoning and playing as a powerful aetheric Spirit, and using its mighty Quickenings to turn the tide of battle
  • Character creation section for starting your campaign off as a Spirit Caller

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.
