52 Fates


52 Fates is a unique, easy to play tabletop RPG system that uses a single, standard 52-card deck for combat and skill resolution. Two character classes, four spells, four combat maneuvers for warriors, low hit points, and interesting strategic play by having a card deck in combat make this an unique proposition amongst RPG games. And it all fits in a zini format; A single-double-sided letter-sized page is enough to print all the basic rules included here.

Just get paper and pencil to keep track of game events and you're ready to go!

The adventures of 52 Fates take place in a low-magic, dangerous world full of strange creatures and fantastical locations. There, the whole known world regressed considerably after the Titan Wars a few hundred years ago. There are still no truly large cities, and the biggest of the existing cities and domains live in relative isolation, minding their own business and avoiding the troubles that brought destruction and despair hundreds of years ago.

Even though it has its own world, you can easily adapt almost any adventure module from another RPG system to 52 Fates. The main task for this would be to “convert” to this system the creatures and monsters in an adventure.

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.
