Equinox Setting Guide Beta (English)

Multiple File Formats

It's Christmas in July! From now through July 28th, this title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our X-mas in July sale page.

Equinox is a future fantasy setting of stunning action, frightening intrigue, and mystical powers. The characters of the Equinox Universe ride hybrid ships through astral space connecting planets and galaxies, and wield awesome mystic powers and nethertech relics! They are restless wanderers—living on the fringes of galactic society, scraping by in a war-torn system or even stealing other people‘s stuff. Whether a misfit, scoundrel, mercenary, pirate, idealist, explorer, or just someone who walked away from his home in search of adventure: they are part of the Galactic Underground. Fighting the nightmares that invaded the universe, starting a revolution against the fascistic and corrupted Consortium government, and exploring space beyond the Veil...

The Equinox Setting Guide is a book of ideas, a condensed description of a much larger universe. This book presents the setting and background of Equinox, which you can use for a wide variety of things: as a game world for your favorite roleplaying game system, as inspiration for writing stories (or even a novel), for designing your own computer or board games, or just as a good read for spurring your imagination.

Because this book doesn’t contain any game mechanics (except for some general guidelines you might find useful for adapting the setting), you can adapt it easily as a backdrop for your favorite game system.

An Important Note on the Beta status!

This product is a very first release of the Equinox Setting Guide, and still in "beta" status. The text content is complete and usable, but missing the eye candy. Layout and artwork are being created, as are rules adaptions for various roleplaying game systems. These things take time, but we don't want to make people wait just for that. The text is the most important part of the book, so those who want to delve into the Equinox Universe can do so right away!

That said, here's why we think you should buy this beta version: customers of this product will receive free digital updates as the book comes together. The price is currently reduced, and will later be increased to match the additional content. Your support at this time will get you that for free when its done. But there's more: included in the package is a special 10% discount on all our other products available at the time of release!

We can't make any promises of when the final version will be released. While we are very dedicated to finishing this, there is always a tiny chance we won't make it due to unforeseen circumstances. That's why we've made this current deal sweet enough so you'll be happy with your purchase regardless of what happens in the future.

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.
