Arcanes Majeures: A game of intrigue, upheaval, and tarot cards, for Fate Accelerated Edition

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

Things are changing.  Revolutionary technologies like gunpowder, the printing press, and the ornithopter have set the stage for social revolution.  From one city-state to the next, the old ways are under threat, and the only guarantee is that things are going to get rough.

And mixed into this all are the Arcanes, uniquely powerful people who possess abilities greater than any magician or mercenery.  Pursuing their own agendas, the Arcanes are the wildcards in the various conflicts that are brewing.  And whatever they decide, their power may well determine who is still standing when the dust settles.

Imagine the Endless or the royal family of Amber matching wits (or blades) with the Three Musketeers.  That, in a nutshell, is the world of Arcanes Majeures.

This game uses the Fate Accelerated rules with one significant twist - tarot cards play a central role in character and setting creation.  Your High Aspect and Trouble are replaced by a tarot card of your choosing, and your character gets supernatural abilities related to that card.  City-states are designed by drawing tarot cards as well, to answer a series of questions that will define the conflicts going on around the PCs.

Hello! I purchased and tried to download but get a "source file could not be found" error message. Tried multiple times, new and old interface, logged out & back in.

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.
