Chronicle of the Awakenings


This book contains several new resources for the player and gamemaster of Nephilim. At the front of the book are sixteen new Past Life eras for character generation. These eras also help fill in some of the timeline of Nephilim history.

Following the new Past Life eras is a section of new Metamorphosis rules which change the way in which the Transformations work, and introduce the idea of passionate emotions to the game. Nephilim are by nature passionate creatures, and now a system has been created whereby understanding and behaving in accordance with those emotions helps the Nephilim progress further down the path to Agartha.

New transformations are given for each Metamorphoses. Instead of the old system of describing the changes to head, hands, skin, odor, and voice, the new system details five identifying transformations specific to the nature of each metamorphosis. Now Tritons can breath underwater and Angels can fly, for example.

After the explanation of the emotional traits comes the listing of the seven metamorphoses already given in the rulesbook, each with their listing of corresponding traits and new physical transformations.

Four new Metamorphoses come next, described using the new Passions and Transformations system from earlier in the book.

Numerous pages of new Simulacra appear near the end of the book. These humans can be used when the Nephilim reincarnates, or the gamemaster can introduce them in play as non-player characters.

Finally, a revised two-page character sheet can be found at the end of the book. The Metamorphoses section of this sheet has been changed to represent the new Traits and Transformations system.

Scanned image
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.
