ENnie Silver Award for Best d20/OGL Product

One year ago, eldritch horrors of cosmic malevolence called the Iconnu attempted to destroy our reality.

They failed, but the attempt left the world in rapidly darkening shadow. Dead souls returned to claim living bodies, creating blood-drinking undead fiends: vampires. Bestial spirits came as well, to create werewolves, and demons formed bodies from worldly matter. Magic crashed back into the world, and mages wield its power for whatever purpose suits them. Humans called the Awakened unknowingly keep the darkness at bay.

These supernatural creatures struggle against each other and clash in the shadows, most attempting to destroy the world, but a few fighting to preserve it. And over it all, the Iconnu still lurk, squeezing the world like an eggshell.

This book includes a complete setting: a new vision of the World of Darkness.

  • Characters play as vampires, mages, werewolves, demons or Awakened and wield frightening supernatural powers against their own kind.
  • The world is the one we know, but now much darker: destruction in the central United States, nightmares coming to life and beasts roaming shattered cityscapes.
  • This game uses a variation of the most popular roleplaying game system in the world.

Note: The Black & White print editions of this book are not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

A 5e update to this would be amazing. However, I am pretty sure it won't happen.

I was literally coming on here to ask if a 5E version was in the works. Would be amazing if that was the case.

5e of this will never happen, however, it is a complete game on its own and its own unique setting and the rules are similar enough to 5e that most anyone who has 5e experience could easily pick this up and feel comfortable. If you wanted to make it more 5e like then you would need to change the combat rules to match 5e's (stuff like how reactions and bonus actions work), you might need to restructure the advancement tables of all the classes so they progress along the 5e "proficiency bonus" scale instead of the 3.5 "nearly every level gets a +1" scale. Feats you would have to completely rework to be 5e-powered and 5e-rare, or you could just try going with it, I believe it would be OK but late game characters will be significantly more powerful than 5e equivalents. The skills and saving throw system of 5e could drop in fine, just the rework the character numbers so they get "prof bonus" + "ability bonus" on their proficient skills/saves or just "ability bonus"...See more

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.
