Aetherium Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

Aetherium is a tabletop miniatures board game set in the virtual shadow of our own desperate future. Assemble your collective of hackers, agents, activists, or anarchists and lead them on hyper-fast runs into a dangerous virtual reality. Use your cunning and bloody- minded determination to carve your place in the Aetherium.

Aetherium is played with an intuitive d12 mechanism on a unique modular tile system that responds directly to the will of the players. Players control one of several evocative factions and battle across a profound virtual landscape.The game’s fluid interaction ensures that no two games can ever be the same. In Aetherium, players will:

- Control a handful of highly detailed, beautifully sculpted miniatures to represent your unique cadre of hackers and affiliated programs.

- Engage in a daring struggle for control of an ever- shifting landscape, set against a backdrop of mind- crushing Quantum Noise. Be careful where you tread.

- Strategically program your activation deck in order to anticipate your opponent’s movement, and to sequence your software as you lead your team on a bold run into the Aetherium.

- Struggle for control of the psychological reality itself, while utilizing your free remaining RAM resource to stay in the fight to the bitter end.

Is this any different than what came in the base game back in 2014 (I think)?

Hello Michael. It's the same basic book, just in pdf format. We will, in the reasonably near future, be adding additional material not already in print here at Wargame's Vault.

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.
