The Artifact Third Edition


The Earth can't sustain us anymore. Over fifty six years ago The Artifact was discovered, an artificial planetoid that is now the only hope for our refugees. This enormous planet shouldn't be able to sustain life but it seems that someone built it to accommodate human life.

Hanging between two stars, measuring one hundred and seventy thousand Kilometers long and sixty two thousand wide, this monster world seems almost perfect for our needs. Unfortunately the current inhabitants are not ready to welcome us.

Become a part of the story. Can you forge a path for Earth to reach the stars or will do something even more important? Humanity's only hope is about to become it's greatest challenge!

The Artifact RPG has tools for players to tell stories that are traditionally difficult to tell in a game. Survival Challenges give the players the ability to pit their characters against harsh environments. Tech Challenges bring the character's brains into the game, giving science it's proper place in this high tech world. Some rules seem simple at first, like Extra Effort, but can dramatically introduce the hero that uses every gram of energy they have to reach their goal. Will they collapse after reaching it or before?

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.
