Who Do You Want To Play Today?

In a lot of gaming systems that question gets answered for you, but not here. Silvervine is all about you and the character you want to play. Designed to let you build your character and define the way EVERYTHING about them works, the system encourages collaborative play and supports the Game Master and players with a simple to run, easy to improvise, and fun system.

The World Of Cyrus

Silvervine's first world-setting, the Anime/Fantasy/Steampunk themed world of Cyrus is full of opportunity for adventure. In Silvervine, any character is possible, and in Cyrus they fit perfectly. Cyrus is a world of talking animals and airships, heroic adventures and ancient wars, magical beasts and diverse races, political intrigue and endless opportunity for adventure. The borders of Cyrus aren't where the adventure ends. There are many places in Cyrus where the barriers to the spirit lands are weak, and one might step through to other places far stranger still...

Character Creation

Character creation in Silvervine works on a point buy system. Buy skills, powers, raise your character's attributes, and get just the right mix for your character concept.


You've got total control of how and why your character's stuff works. When you activate your flight power do Dragon Wings grow from your back, erupting in mystic flame? Do you rev up your steam powered jetpack and erupt into the sky? It's all in your hands! Is your sword forged from a single dragonscale, is your mace a giant wrench, is your handgun embedded in your metallic arm? That's up to you!


Just like you have control over the thematics of your powers and equipment, you have cinematic control of your actions. You get to say what happens and how. Your actions are in your descriptions and are as incredible as you want them to be.


Silvervine is about stories - the story of the characters, the story the Game Master is crafting, and the collaborative space they come together in. Shared narrative ties it all together and makes the fun. The game system keeps it balanced and fun but the story makes it yours.

Things Players Have Said About Silvervine

"I have been reading your core rule book guys and I must say... the elegance and forethought of the game system is remarkable! Only years of hardcore gaming and dealing with the dramas, errata, and clumsy game systems before you could something like this be done. A system with a reinforced, yet flexible, skeleton and er...gonomic, form fitting outer grip to pull off whatever the game master or player has in mind! Well played gentlemen!" - Chris Curran

"The Arcadian asked me to test the system a bit, so my character was a pirate captain's head on a steampunk spider, armed with a flintlock six-shooter (just imagine it) and a cutlass. The spider could run up walls and such, and had armor around the captain's head. The system handled it just fine, from the wall-crawling to the armor to the weapons. Very impressed!" - Kurt Schneider

"I played in 3 events & intentionally played 3 different characters.
#1 was a dog-blooded tracker/ranger type who likes to collect swords made from unusual materials (and has little patience for teenagers).
#2 was "Young Dr. House"--a cranky..., multi-lingual doctor with a limp--high perception & knowledge attributes; bio science, deduction, body language, and visual acuity skills--it also helps if you're addicted to the TV show (for lots of funny one-liners).
#3 was a bear-blooded, kilt-wearing brawler who plays the bagpipes & carries a BIG Katana. High Strength attribute with Added Attack, Large Weapon, and Tank." Logan O'Murchada

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.
