Maximum Light - An RPG System for the Green Horizon Universe

Suggested Price $3.71

Maximum Light is a Tabletop RPG set in the universe of The Green Horizon and Voiders. Intended for playing space-western campaigns, it outlines some of the key locations and principles for telling stories in the setting, as well as a set of rules for making characters and playing the game. It's a 4d12 system where success will cause you to build up Consequences, and Consequences will explode into Cataclysms if not kept in check. Themed around the traditional ragtag group of down-on-their-luck spacefarers, the rules of Maximum Light are roleplay-heavy and designed for you to scrape out of danger by the skin of your teeth.

Games of Maximum Light centre around heist-movie style 'Grifts', where the players must work together to plan and execute increasingly high-stakes jobs. With their very own spaceship in tow, the crew can journey across the length and breadth of the Green Horizon universe getting into all manner of scrapes and catastrophes - and maybe managing to earn some credits along the way! Although narrative-focused, the Consequence system ensures that there is a very real and measurable sense of mounting tension as the crew battle increasing unfavourable odds to pull of their daring escapdes. This is a system all about pushing your luck and spitting in the face of danger! 

On this page, you can find the full pdf of the Maximum Light book, which contains not only the first guide to the lore of the Green Horizon universe, but also all the rules you'll need to get playing immediately! We've also included an Accessible screen-reader-friendly/Dyslexia version of the pdf, and there is a blank character sheet for you to make use of as well.

If you like Maximum Light, don't forget to check out Paul Walsh's creations The Green Horizon and Voiders, as well as the upcoming Maximum Light Actual Play, A New Low, over on Paul's spotify feed.

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.
