Æther Quick Start Guide


Absolutely the bare minimum of the Æther rules you need to run a game! A great way to introduce yourself to the system, it is stripped of much of the fluff of the system and still holds all of the crunch. This 37 page PDF contains a character sheet, rules for character creation, skills, equipment, combat and scene rules, as well as rules for character advancement and continuing the game after the first adventure. It is handsomely covered, giving a magnificent cover for any binder or folder you choose to utilize when you print it off. The interior of the book contains pertinent tables, but no artwork, keeping the volume tight and small, giving you the most bang for your buck.

This compact volume is completely compatible with the Æther Core Rules though the Core Rules has a few options in it that are not found in the Quick Start Guide. The Quick Start Guide can be used in combination with any setting, supplement, or adventure that is published by Silver Gryphon Games for the Æther Role-Playing System.

The Quick Start Guide is designed to be printed front and back in an effort to conserve space and paper for your benefit.

Update:  If you purchase the Quick Start Guide, be sure to download the Physical Resistance update (SGG 7002) for free.  It contains a last-minute change made between the finishing of the Core Book and the availability of the Quick Start Guide.  Included is a new version of the base character sheet.

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.
