Out of the Ashes (PDF)


From Paul Mitchener, the creator of Liminal!

The war has been won, the Nameless Emperor defeated, his legions scattered or destroyed, but the cost was almost the ruin of the world.

Play survivors seeking to protect and rebuild in this self-contained pen and paper fantasy roleplaying game by the author of the acclaimed Liminal.

Your characters are capable and heroic, but the dangers out there are great. The land is corrupt, and tainted monsters roam and seek prey. The surviving Ministers of the Nameless Empire gather their forces once more, yet hope still remains.

Can you keep your community safe, help it grow, and rebuild civilisation?

The community is at the centre of play. The players create the community as a group, and their characters go on quests on the community's behalf until the game ends in triumph or tragedy. They are the heroes of their community, and the community needs them in order to survive and grow.

This 256-page PDF contains both the rules and details of the game's world. This world is human, with diverse cultures and inherent magic. Magicians of different cultures have different magical styles, including Light Bringing, Rune Wizardry, and Words of Power.

Art by the design team at Handiwork games, led by the acclaimed RPG artist Jon Hodgson.

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.
