AU Brushfire Relief Charity Bundles



The End is Past.

The world's last champion has failed. The prayers of many nations have all fallen on deaf ears. We are alone.

The monster under the bed is out in the open. The thing that goes bump in the night walks in bright day. The worst nightmares of mankind and our greatest dreams have both turned on us.

All that is left is Archetype.

Its betrayal of humanity is our new beginning.

Everything that destroyed us will now be taken to make us whole. Everything we fear will be our new courage.

Humanity will become the monsters that we always were on the inside.

What rules system does this use? Is the setting post-apocalyptic? Is it based on a future version of Earth? Are there fantasy elements? Is it a horror game? The Deal of the Day price has me curious, but the description is so vague, I can't tell if my gaming group would enjoy this or not.

Is there an in-depth review posted somewhere? Or a more detailed description? I tried Googling for "Archetype RPG" but the results were for Pathfinder archetypes or generic archetypes in RPGs, and not this specific book.

The system is unique to the game, using the tarot deck for a randomizer and for a mana system. The setting is very open ended, primarily fantasy, with options for horror in a Dark Souls/BloodBorne style. The book is designed to allude to a bigger world and give you the tools to create your own monsters, items, and organizations rather than embracing a specific setting. I believe groups that enjoy DnD or Exalted would find it their style.

Thank you Luis Olavo D for putting up the link to the website, and thank you for considering giving the game a try.

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.
