Fading Suns (Second Edition)

Watermarked PDF
$34.95

It is the dawn of the sixth millenium and the skies are darkening, for the suns themselves are fading. Humans reached the stars long ago, building a Republic of high technology and universal emancipation -- and then squandered it, fought over it, and finally lost it. A New Dark Age has descended upon humanity, for the greatest of civilizations has fallen and now even the stars are dying. Feudal lords rule the Known Worlds, vying for power with fanatic priests and scheming guilds.

In Fading Suns the RPG, you become a denizen of the Known Worlds, answering the Emperor's inspiring call of a new frontier -- or trying to prevent others from doing so. Players can take on any role they desire, from imperious nobles, lords of the planets of the Known Worlds, to zealous priests from the many sects of the Universal Church, to guild members with secret technology, or aliens from the many races subjugated under human rule. But enemies are many: jealous nobles, angry priests, greedy merchants, powerful warlocks, bizarre cults, the genetically altered and a host of other secret enemies.

Fading Suns is a science fiction game of heavy combat, vicious politics, weird occultism, alien secrets and artifacts, and unknown and un-mapped worlds. And the mystery of why the suns are fading hangs over all.

What a fantastic setting! There is so much going on in this "world" that you could really take the game in any direction and have TONS of story lines to play with. The system is fairly flexible which will be enjoyed by more advanced players but may [...]

What makes this game so captivating is the very vivid universe setting. Character creation and game mechanics are easy. The best part of the game is the "Roleplaying" versus the "Rollplaying" that one gets in so many games. Humanity stands on an knife [...]

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.
