Abide Asteria

Is a Sci-Fi RPG with Fantasy elements such as Elves, Dragons and magic. Fly through space with a crew of various races and use technology, charisma and magic to gain wealth, grow skills and upgrade ships or equipment for your crew. Take on bigger jobs and learn to Abide Asteria's rules or move to the outer planets for a more lawless environment. There you can fight crime as a mercenary, become a pirate, join an organized crime group, become an explorer or maybe invent the next big thing, harass political figures or any number of other ideas you might come up with. All this and more can be found in the universe of Abide Asteria.

Abide Asteria uses a card-based system that is built from the ground up, easy to learn and rewarding to master. The game has some light meta elements that are encouraged at the table, involving the players and characters working together to decide what might be best. Build hands and match suits to play big off your character’s best skills. You will need only regular playing cards for this experience. No need to purchase proprietary cards.

This system utilizes a website for its book design where you will be able to quickly reference topics faster than ever, both as the Guide (referred to as a GM in popular titles) or as a player. This system also allows for easier balancing and maintenance to ensure you're always playing the most recent version! Please feel free to join our growing community on discord and give feedback - this is the best way to make positive changes to Abide Asteria.

The class system is fairly open and allows you to perform any of the skills listed as options. Your chosen class may have bonuses that will also help. Your class encompasses who you are in the world. Are you a Captain with loads of money but a little low on skill points, relying on your crew to help you along the way? Or maybe you are a highly skilled Crew Member or perhaps a Lone Wolf who prefers to stand out from the crowd and make your own way. You may pick any of those classes plus more and still choose any of the skills like elemental magic, mechanical repair, rifles, piloting and many more.
Keep the action at the table high! Players also get to select exploits which will frequently break the basic rules of the game. Similar to a feat in other popular titles except all exploits are powerful and most of them are quite meta. An exploit might allow players to change the outcome of a random event or change their hand size, redraw cards and more.

From wizard elves and quadrupedal dragon diplomats to mechanic cat people and dog people pilots, there is a race and job for you in Abide Asteria. Our Guides of Asteria will be thrilled to share our pre-written lore or throw all of that out the window for some of their own! You will also have the support of our community to answer questions, present new content and grow this mom and pop game design into something that is worth running at nearly any table.

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.
