Ex-Lumine: Quickstarter Version

Ex-Lumine is a Dark-Fantasy roleplaying game with Dieselpunk influences where the players take on the role of Soul Binders, individuals in possession of a special lantern that allows them to absorb and consume the souls of the dead to obtain formidable powers.

Ex-Lumine is set in Terminus, a world poisoned by a dark fog known as Corruption and inhabited by dark creatures known as Tenebris. The only hope for the peoples of Terminus is to harness the power of the souls and fight the upcoming darkness!

Some of the key features of Ex-Lumine:

  • Four Unique races. In Ex-Lumine the humans are the only ones untouched by Corruption. The other four races suffered the effects of the dark fog mutating into the fiery Khans, the mysterious Ratlings, the dreadful Marshlings and the vengeful Scarred.
  • Race-specific classes: in Ex-Lumine a player takes on the role of a Soul Binder from a Soul Binder order. This acts as a "class" granting unique powers and abilities. Each one of the five races has its unique Soul Binder orders!
  • Souls system: the game offers a unique system allowing Soul Binders to absorb and consume the souls of the dead through the use of special lanterns. With these artefacts the Soul Binders can summon incredible powers!
  • Lantern Powers and Soulbond: by using his special lantern a Soul Binder can summon arcane powers or bind his soul with another Soul Binder creating a unique and special bond depending on the chosen order (the "class").
  • Corruption System: the game offers a Corruption system. The more the Soul Binders suffer the effects of the dark fog, the more they mutate eventually transforming into dreadful abominations.
  • A simple D100 system: a simple D100 system almost completely in the hand of the players. Our design is to let the Game Master focus only on storytelling!
  • In-depth character personalization: althought this is but a short version, the final manuall will contain rules allowing players to personalize their Soul Binders by choosing from an extensive list of powers and skills.
  • In-depth lore: a vast lore about the world of Terminus and its five major races.
  • Absence of Magic: the arcane balance has been shattered by Corruption. As such, Soul Binders can invoke arcane powers through their lanterns.
  • Soulbound technology: the peoples of Terminus have learned how to refine and consume souls to fuel armors, weapons, guns and vehicles! This gives the game a Steampunk/Dieselpunk influence.

This Quickstart manual will guide you through everything you need to know about the game before you sit down and try it with your friends!

This quickstarter is divided into two parts:

  1. Introduction to the setting and rules: the first section delves into the most important aspects of Terminus – the region where the game is set – including its races, their different customs and traditions, and the rules that are essential to play.

  2. Short adventure: Dark Cults: the second part offers a gritty, suspense-packed adventure designed for four players and their Game Master, together with prebuilt characters from the five available races.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
