“Life is tragic simply because the earth turns, and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death – ought to decide, indeed, to earn one’s death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life.”

― James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time



Red Giant is a Tabletop Role Playing Game influenced by, but not limited to, anime and manga such as Vampire Hunter D, Berserk, and Claymore. Red Giant aims to recreate the various themes, dynamics, and scenarios seen in these types of media.

Red Giant is very adaptable and can be used in a myriad of ways to suit your tabletop game, as the core of this system provides many tools for use in creating your own customized session.

No one knows how the Red Giant came to be: some people believe it was an act of god, some believe it was due to ancient technology, but no matter how this planet became cursed, it is clear that



Stories passed down through the ages all describe in detail a day long ago where the sun suddenly grew and became consumed in a blood red color. As the people stared at the sky a crimson haze slowly crept across the surface of the planet. It’s been said that this was the beginning of what was known as “the end of the world” or “the rapture” by people of that time. 

From this day forward humanity and the world that they knew was forever changed, horrific beings and aberrations began to rise, seemingly from the soil itself. Beings of absolute terror and structures the human mind cannot comprehend appeared from nothingness. It was not long before humanity was ultimately driven to the edge of extinction, facing these impossible threats.

People now eke out a small existence throughout the lands attempting to avoid or defeat the horrors and creatures that have awakened from the planet in order to survive, but for what and for what cost?

May I recommend a class where you could turn into a "Horror" like in Attack On Titan??? That would be pretty cool, and the draw back is that while in human form every time after you turn back you loose an amount of sanity???

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.
