Introducing the

Trait Dice System Logo


Explore the immensity of the D-Verse with the upcoming NEXUS role-playing game. This unique setting brings a much needed jolt to the RPG genre with its fresh mix of lowbrow humor, social commentary and unrestrained creativity.

Players and GMs alike will have a blast exploring the vast array of alien species, vanguard technology and eccentric characters that will comprise their unorthodox adventures. An RPG campaign set in NEXUS will be less like “Lord of the Rings” or “Star Wars” and more like “The Big Lebowski”. Adventures will be lighthearted and fun with a splash of deception and a ton of creativity. Players will walk away from the table with stories of survival and redemption. Or perhaps, for the more ruthless players, stories of fame, riches and corruption.


The backdrop of the NEXUS puts characters in a world resigned to acceptance. It is a stark look at an existence where those in power are free to indulge their vanity and greed with no regard for consequence or judgement. It is a culture that celebrates the base desires of violence and depravity. This isn’t a dark future where there is only war. There is no war. There is nothing left worth fighting for. To quote the late Leonard Cohen, “The war is over, and the good guys lost”. How players forge their path amidst these surroundings will most certainly create compelling and entertaining stories.


The character progression and skill systems are designed to evolve with the players as they navigate this ruthless environment. Look forward to an approachable RPG with easy to learn mechanics that doesn’t sacrifice depth. The NEXUS role-playing game will also feature organic character development with natural evolution into party roles. You can also expect streamlined play while using a unique narrative driven dice system.


Let’s be honest, your players do not want to be heroes. They want to be something a little less lofty and a lot more fun.

Yeah, they may want to save the world, but in reality most campaigns navigate a long and twisted path to reach the climax. In other words, players will generally leave a trail of blood, havoc and destruction in their wake. During the course of an adventure, the group’s collateral damage upon the gameworld often outweighs any benefit of achieving their virtuous and noble goal. And that’s OK.

It’s usually the sordid and silly mishaps that have the table laughing and enjoying their role playing experience the most. The freedom of adventuring in a fictional world allows them to enjoy the chaos and laugh at their shameful actions. Did the players accidentally poison the princess, murder the hobo or piss in the soup? It’s all in good fun.

NEXUS:Redemption embraces these offbeat and non-chivalrous aspects of your RPG

This is gonna smash faces in when it releases in full - in the best way possible! I'm seeing tons of little mechanical bits and pieces that I like a lot (the character creation system and main rolling mechanism are stand outs) and the art is jus [...]

The universe they've created in the preview seems like a good setting for campaigning or just fun one-shots. The mechanics are simple enough and well explained but could become complex for players that want to explore min/max builds or balancing. Each [...]

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.
