Description:

Infinite Futures is a Sci-Fi RPG geared to allow you to play any sort of Sci-Fi genre or game. Built from the Pathfinder game system, you will find that IF is a great game, fully detailed with a loads of great races and classes as wells as skills and feats to make any Sci-Fi game a joy to play.

Prolog:  What’s in a name? 

Well, first I should explain that first we tried about half a dozen other names for this game.  Some of the names we wanted were already taken.  But most of the time, the problem was, a name conjured up too specific an image, or no image at all.

While there is a great variety in fantasy, it is a single genre.  Where as science fiction has a multitude of sub genera:  post apocalyptic, modern horror, dystopian, space rangers, space opera, space exploration, and alien invasions, to name a few.

In fantasy, magic, in some form or another, is an interregnal part of the story.  But when you consider science fiction, there is Sci-Fi which doesn’t involve supernatural forces; Sci-Fi which doesn’t involve androids; Sci-Fi which doesn’t involve space travel.  While there are many elements which can be included, or have a Sci-Fi feel to them, no single one is actually mandatory the way magic defines the fantasy genera.

So after our last name fell through I was lying in bed one day (I was performing astronomical observations at the time, so living a nocturnal lifestyle.)  As I tried to ignore the sunlight and drift off to sleep, I thought about a name which could capture the feel of ‘generic Sci-Fi.’  Given the variety in different people’s visions of the futures, what one name could possibly capture the feeling of the infinite possible futures?

The infinite possible futures?  In the RPG industry, how you abbreviate the name of your game is a non-trivial question.  Acronyms are one of the most popular ways.  Infinite Futures naturally becomes IF.  And that is really what Sci-Fi is all about “What IF...”

So now come, explore the infinite futures with us.  It all starts by asking yourself that one simple question, “What IF?”

Infinite Futures seems a better 'effort' than World of Wonders. But, it still has some flaws. Typing errors (someone really should have proof-read it before releasing it). The artwork (CGI), seems rather good in some sections, but not so good in [...]

This product, an attempt to produce an over-arching set of rules for all manner of science-fiction gaming drawing on the core concepts of the Pathfinder ruleset, opens with a bit of a rambling prologue about how the game got its name, and the usual 'What [...]

I wanted to like this, i really did, but between the bad art, the poor editing (the classes chapter stuck out in this reguard) and the boring races (i understand your trying to be generic, and that they released an aliens book shortly after, but a little [...]

Infinite Futures is an ambitious product, an attempt to convert D20 Future to make them fully compatible with the Pathfinder RPG. It's a decent attempt, and will be useful for gamers wanting new feats, futuristic and modern weapons, cybernetics and alien [...]

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.
