“You’re a hero. Will you become a legend ?”

Qin - the role-playing game encourages you to explore a rich and fascinating historical
setting. In this Ancient China of the Warring States, doomed to disappear into dictatorship
and bureaucracy, there is still the opportunity for you to become a legend…

Political intrigues, battles, quests,magic and mythical creatures await !
As a hero questing for adventure, glory or immortality, you will leap from roof to roof,
duel against the expert swordsmen of Chu, plot against the rulers of Qin or Zhao,
create pacts with spirits or discover the fruits of the Immortal Isles, decipher oracles carved on jade Bi or tortoise shells, direct your troops to assault fortresses, seek wise taoists to benefit from their learning, drive out phantoms or rely on the power of Chi to accomplish high deeds, worthy of the Divine Masters.
Knight-errant or mercenary, robber or fleeing courtesan, exorcist or alchemist,simple footman or general, destiny calls you all to enter the legend of this forgotten China.


This start-up kit is an introduction, an overview of the Qin role-playing game, due out in October 2006. The mechanics presented here are a partial but playable version. They do not include all techniques and combat options, and nor do they present the Qin magic system. We encourage you to test the basic mechanics through a combat between the two pre-generated characters herein.

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.
