Honourable Mention for BEST SETTING, 2008 ENNIE AWARDS

  A true-to-book fantasy world has overrun our real world, breaking down our technology and throwing nations and religions into disarray.  What would you choose:   Refrigerators, computers, and central heating, or elves, dragons, magic, and monsters?  It’s a crusade of consequences.  Decide the future of the planet.  

  This is not some stylized view of Earth like Harry Potter, or a fictionalized world like Middle Earth. This is our real world (with you, your family, Tolkein, and D&D) with all the problems both social and political intact.  How would religions like Christianity and Islam respond given such massive doubts to their dogma? Would we welcome the world of fantasy or would we fear their very presence? Now, on top of this dilemma, what if their magic disrupted our world of technology. Their very presence and the spells they flaunt shorts out our cars and computers. Would you embrace a world of wizardry and wonders in exchange for air conditioning, Internet, and cable TV? Would you fear or hate those that could harness such power? Would you hide in cities of pipe and steel, lights and heat, or venture in a landscape of goblins, dragons, swords, and sorcery?

Amethyst is a new D20 based setting with a deep story element, new rules and classes, and artwork by Nick Greenwood, Jaime Jones, and Katherine Dinger. Players can create characters on the side of technology or on the side of fantasy. How the story evolves depends on their choices and their motivations. Will they fight for the dominance of technology, or will they crusade for the reign of fantasy? What would you do?

(I bought the limited edition hardcover of Amethyst, which was signed and included a beautiful colour print by Nick Greenwood. I have read the book but have not yet playtested the game, so I will speak less to the rules and more to the worldbuilding and [...]

I just finished going through Amethyst. Took me about two days to really read it through carefully and now I feel confident enough to post a review without having yet really playtested it. The PDF with its recent alterations leaves very little to [...]

Some books are harder to review than others. In some cases, this is because they’re so different from other products that it’s hard to have a baseline to compare them to. For others, it’s because the book doesn’t attempt to go in a direction that [...]

This is a great product. Its a campaign world for D20 3.5 set in a not so far future on earth. Simply put, magic is back with a vengeance and as reclaimed most of the globe. Some humans have adapted and may now cast fireballs and flirt with elves. Other [...]

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.
