Chronicles of the Void is a pen-and-paper role playing game set in an original space opera universe.

*****

The year is now 560 After Ouroboros in the second era.

Humans have stretched the boundaries of their own humanity by experimenting with cybernetic implants, engineering Geno-Perfect children, and introducing life-extending technology which offers immortality to anyone who can afford to maintain the strict treatment regimen. Wormhole travel allows the traversal of galaxies in the blink of an eye. The Neuro Labyrinth connects every citizen of colonized worlds to one another in real time and offers virtual bodies to explore new realms which are limited only by the imagination. Alien lifestyles and ideas have infiltrated human culture, fracturing the Hexumvirate’s once-absolute authority over mankind, and have caused new systems of government to grow and flourish.

However, this time of heady growth and expansion has not been without its costs. The Banx Crusade nearly saw the end of this social order just 30 years ago and has left a legacy of ruined planets, displaced people, and a tireless contingent of ruthless robotic SERK that still terrorizes people to this day.

Billions of star systems have been surveyed, thousands have been settled, but septillions more remain a mystery.

What will you discover as you explore the void?

*****

The game’s foundation is an innovative game engine which defines two major systems for handling fast-paced action: the One Breath Combat (OBC) and Vehicle Assault and Pursuit (VAP) systems. The OBC system engages players in skirmishes which encourage cinematic actions and the speedy resolution of events to keep players in the moment. The VAP system captures the excitement of piloting your own customizable star fighter into battle simulating 3D combat on a 2D grid. CotV trims the fat off the tabletop gaming experience and cuts straight to the action with a strong emphasis on ease of play and unlimited extensibility through the cyber realms of the Neuro Labyrinth. The Neuro Labyrinth allows each player's character to create avatars to roam the vast cyberscape, which opens up new frontiers in customization and depth on a previously unimagined level.

** UPDATE **

We have updated the PDF file to a newer version that fixes the crashing issues we were having on some versions of Apple's iOS. The current file is now supported on all devices. Enjoy!

Mark/Cory - We've been doing some research on this issue and it appears as though there is a PDF related bug in the new iOS7. We've been working with our layout artist to create different PDFs using some other options, but none of them seem to have fixed the issue. The book works great on PC, Android, and other iOS versions. We hope that Apple will come out with a patch soon to fix this issue, but at this time we are still waiting. You can see some other people struggling with this issue over on the Apple Support forums here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/23455544#23455544

I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

While I find the organization of the text to be pretty hard for me to parse, I have enjoyed reading this book and have gotten a lot more into it than most games with more than 16 pages. I think the characters are great and the mechanics and combat systems seem really fun. I already had a setting in mind when I got this book so I haven't read the setting piece as much. I think, for the price, this is a great title to pick up. My regrets are that there haven't been anything else created for it since it apparently went live two years ago - character sheets, at the table cheat sheets, etc. I'll have to make those myself, I suppose!

Note, I have to read on a PC; it does crash every PDF reader I have on my iPad.

Thanks for the kind words Marc and glad you are enjoying the book! We have been working on Chronicles of the Void for about two years but it went live only about two weeks ago. We have already begun work on the next project in the CotV universe so I don't think you will have to wait long for more content. :)

The file seems to work fine on all of our mac products however we have one backer that can't seem to open it. This appears to have something to do with with iOS7 and our layout artist is hard at work trying to find a a solution.

Cory,

Thanks so much for your purchase, we've got one other report from an Apple user that also described an issue similar to yours. Our layout artist is working right now to fix the issue and we will send you an new copy as soon as it is ready. To everyone else, this issue appears to be isolated to certain version of iOS/iBooks as we have several other Apple users who have reported no trouble with the book. If you are a Windows user, there are no issues with the current file.

Format
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.
