Ascendancy - Rogue Marshal


ASCENDANCY - Rogue Marshal, draws the players into a world of political intrigue and power plays; psychotic serial killers and obsessed fetish gangs; deranged cults that call forth eldritch nightmares; and mad inventors who create mechanical and chemical abominations. All amid the background of Ashendrya — The Endless City.

Ashendrya is a city so vast that normal citizens are called upon to act as its wardens in time of need; and there is always a need. While industrial cabals wage secret wars that threaten to engulf whole regions of the city, malign cults pray to Shiok, the mad god, and call his influence into the very heart of Ashendrya.

In Ashendrya, celebrity, fame and fashion are proof of success, poisoning the weak of mind to fall into madness; the poor are left to rot in the low regions, without light or hope, or join the nation's fighting forces and march to war.

Ascendancy, a core rule book, provides everything the aspiring game master needs to run a FateStorm game, as well as information on setting, creatures, character development and suggested story arcs.

With 288 pages including;

5 new unique races

a broad bestiary covering the most common creatures, manifesicants, and npcs

more than 100 unique magical weaves

a long list of highly detailed magical artefacts for use in your games

over 40 unique vocations and vocation paths for the Avatars to follow

And a highly detailed dark fantasy setting with npcs, maps, locations and story hooks

Introducing the FateStorm Virtual Reality System

The Art of Evolutionary Roleplay

What makes FateStorm work:

  • FateStorm uses an innovative wager system to determine reward for risk with the player betting on their success.

  • FateStorm has a unique duelling system that engages the player in the action, without making the outcome inevitable and all without relying upon random determination generation.

  • FateStorm accesses Jungian and Campbell archetypes to deliver a rich and nuanced playing experience where the influences of the multiverse infuse the lives of the player’s characters; allowing them access to the very core spiritual building blocks, which they can call upon to aid them or hinder their opponents.

  • The system is flexible enough to be modified by a GM who wishes to add their own personal touch, is modular enough to engage newbies as well as veteran RPGers and visceral enough to act as a virtual reality rule set.

  • A set of tools, including; the FateDeck, FateSphere, HeroCycle, Ruling Sign Leylines and Elemental affinity, create a myriad of ways in which to interpret events and use these as story enablers.

Fate favours the brave

From now on it's not up to the GM or the dice to prove a character's worth - it's up to you.

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.
