New Gods of Mankind New God's Handbook 1st Edition

Watermarked PDF

Live the Legend.

In the Celestial Spheres above the Known World you live among the immortals—a New God of Mankind worshipped by your followers. Here you may create your own heaven or hell, a place of solace or perhaps a kingdom of pain. From your heavenly abode, you may descend to the Known World or visit the unearthly Spirit Realm in the blink of an eye. Your power is only limited by your worshippers and the Belief you hold.

Become the Myth.

New Gods of Mankind: New God’s Handbook is a core rulebook created for the player and the GM alike to get started in the world of gods.

Assume the roles of ancient warriors or magicians, spirits or even demons that have gathered followers to your cause, ascending to the Celestial Gardens and to godhood. Your very being personifies major and minor aspects of the world and mortal life: War, Death, Birth, or the Sun itself is yours to become. Create miracles, command your followers, and smite your enemies at your whim.

Be a God.

Mankind is a struggling race in its infancy, limited by primitive technology and hindered by many rivals including terrible Leviathans, the Elder Races and their gods who are jealous of sharing their power, as well as the gods of rival tribes. Humanity looks to you for protection from this hostile world. It is your task as a New God of Mankind to guide your people to a new way of life and a better afterlife.

New Gods of Mankind puts the players in the roles of gods of the Known World. Players create god characters by outlining their domains of influence, symbols, miracles, commandments, rituals, worship and more, and begin with a small group of followers. [...]

This is a fun RPG that can also double as a board game. There is a TON of mythology here, so it'll take some time to get through. It's a pretty quick read though. The book describes the world (bronze age with races other than humans), Celestial Gardens [...]

The Good: Great concept, playing actual Gods instead of "Gods Walking The Earth" Playable as a board game as well as an RPG (or mix and match). Plays on common fantasy tropes without hitting the standard dwarf/e [...]

We got this product for review on The Digital Front some time back, but unfortunately Mark's time has been taken up by real life stuff, so it ended up lingering in the electronic closet of gaming books. I had taken a look at it a couple of times since [...]

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.
