The Entropic Gaming System is a new tabletop role-playing rules system for any genre and subgenre. Its baseline design is meant to embrace Shadowed Earth, allowing for multiple eras and influencing genres to utilize the same set of mechanics with little to no changes necessary. Designed with the principle of allowing maximum flexibility with fewer rules, characters can vary widely while still retaining the depth of their background, providing players with the means to translate their character concepts into something fully usable on the tabletop.

Using an escalating dice mechanic, from d4 through d12, a combination system that allows Skills to be combined with different Abilities to produce any possible action, character Qualities that can be used in-game to produce bonuses through Hero Points, and very flexible mechanics for combat and Talents, EGS keeps the rules medium while presenting players with more options and flexibility!

Whether it’s fantasy, sci-fi, modern action, pulp, or horror, the Entropic Gaming System can handle them all! Powered by the Open Gaming License, fans and Third Party Publishers can take advantage of the simple mechanics to make EGS THEIR game.

This Quick Start Guide includes:

  • An extraction of the Entropic Gaming System core mechanics.
  • Character creation.
  • Magic and Technology system known as Talents.
  • A new dark fantasy introductory adventure.
  • Six (6) pregenerated characters.
  • … and more!

Play in your setting, grab one of ours, or use the included adventure to start a dark fantasy campaign and experience the flexibility of the Entropic Gaming System that allows the game’s mechanics to conform to your character concept!

Hi Aaron, I like the new layout of the book and look forward to the future ones. One thing, though: the PB version does have a black box in which the side bar text is printed in white. This chews up a lot of ink, especially if it is meant to be printer friendly. Any chance we can see future books with the plain white border as it has been done in the Science Fiction setting book and the 'older' books? Cheers, Rob.

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.
