Celtic fantasy roleplaying in a once and future Britain.

For a free download of the full introductory chapter giving an overview of the setting and the rules basics, see the Silver Branch page.

Two centuries ago the Age of Madness ended in the event known as the Shrug. Gaia's outrage raised the sea and changed the weather, and society crumbled. The Druid Order came forth to lead us in a new way, inspired by the ideas of ancient times. Now the seven kingdoms know peace and prosperity, but rumours and shadows are growing. Who will confront them?

Albion is a fantasy roleplaying game using Celtic elements and themes in an isolated future Britain that has turned back to its past. It's a fantasy setting with occasional elements surviving from our modern world. Many different factions are at work in the setting, so you can focus your game on the elements you like most. The Druid Order seeks stability at all costs; the Artificers want to bring back science and technology; the otherworldly Danaan and Fomor are drawing Albion into their ancient conflict; and forces in the spirit world have their own dark plans. Magic lies below the surface and can be stirred by any skill or roused by spells, monsters lurk outside the light, and the paths of destiny call for champions.

The game uses its own rules system, traditional in style but streamlined for ease and speed in play. The basics: add attribute and skill, roll that many six-sided dice, count successes. Characters are built through a simple lifepath system based around 28 occupation programmes, giving plenty of build options while making characters feel like they've come from somewhere. Overall, the system lets you stick to the basics or add more detailed options when you're ready.

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.
